Relationship problems

Relationship problems

All relationships require work and face challenges. Relationship difficulties can arise from both issues within the relationship and outside stressors. There doesn’t have to be a big crisis, and often, relationship problems arise as a result of an accumulation of issues which have built up over months or years until one partner decides that something needs to change.

Causes and signs of relationship problems

Some examples of stressors on a relationship include:

  • Work - long hours, or work related stress
  • Money and finances
  • Poor communication
  • Birth of a baby
  • Bringing up children
  • Anger (about the relationship, or something outside it)
  • Bereavement
  • An affair
  • Physical or verbal abuse
  • Empty nest syndrome
  • Lack of intimacy/mismatch in needs
  • Childhood issues
  • Parents and in-laws
  • Chronic illness

Unresolved relationship difficulties can lead to a range of problems for all members of the family, including:

  • Performance issues at work
  • Abuse (physical, verbal or psychological)
  • Poor physical health
  • Poor performance and behaviour at school
  • Breakdowns in communication
