Our closest relationships can be our source of our greatest happiness. However, relationships are complex and require a high degree of communication and negotiation skills. Relationships are also unique and therefore one-size-fits-all approach can not be applied to understanding relationships.
Most couples will take a long time to recognize and acknowledge problems within their relationship while in some cases there is sudden demand put on the relationship that exposes its weak link i.e. birth of a child, financial problems, redundancy, serious illness, discovery of an affair etc. When there is no distinct crisis, both parties may muddle along for many years with low expectations of change. Whatever your unique situation is, acknowledging that there is a problem is a vital first step to resolving it.
