Dealing With Problems in RelationshipsAuthor: Francis Githinji
Problems in relationships help you grow and they strengthen your relationships. However, there are problems in relationships which will break your union and may end in divorce or separation. Therefore, it is vital to realize that problems can serve either purpose. When you enter into a marital relationship, you should make up your mind that you want problems to leave you a better couple. Problems may be minor while others may be very large. Cheating or infidelity qualifies as a major problem while, argument about bath water is a minor issue. However, you should never underestimate the power of minor problems. All problems can make your life a living hell. Solving problems once you identify them is what you need to do. This is because you can deal best with an issue when it is raw. There are many couples who burry their heads in the sand and give a blind eye to obvious problems. Ignorance in this case is not bliss. Once you identify a problem, seek ways to solve it so that it does not escalate to be a huge problem.
Problems in relationships may cause strife. This strife results in anger and bitterness. Many times, it is pretty hard for us to prevent these emotions. However, you are not told to prevent them; manage them. In life, we live by managing our problems. You can learn how to manage your anger. All over the world, there is no absence of cases where spouses kill each other in rage. This kind of rage does not develop overnight. It is mainly as a result of issues that have been kept hidden or unresolved. Therefore, deal with each problem as it comes. Problems in relationships can prove to be very difficult and, some problems can keep resurfacing even after dealing with them. For example, one woman had a problem when it came to spending money. She would literally blow the family money on shoes and expensive clothes. After years of being warned, the man had enough and he decided to leave her; their finances having been driven to a wall. This constant problem was an addiction that needed to be dealt with medically or psychologically. Understand your problems and seek the right kind of help before you give up.
Go to professionals for help on problems in relationships. This is because most professionals in this field deal with such cases all the time. They have experience and, even a deeper understanding on the reason or cause for the problem. It might prove to be very expensive but, you can go online for free information and help. There are numerous resources that will play a pivotal role to ensure that your relationship is restored. Once you have gotten through the first five years of marriage, you will find that you have more experience in dealing with issues. Do not be confident about this, the work has just began. Many couples are comfortable with their troubles and look at their relationships taking a back seat in their lives. Do not settle for a mediocre marriage. You need to ensure that the relationship is bringing the best out of you.

How to Work Through Five Common Problems in RelationshipsAuthor: Stuart
There are not many things that will give you such a superb feeling as having a great relationship with your partner. There are always things that can cause problems in relationships so we need to make sure that your relationship is one that can make everything that is negative in your life seem meaningless and insignificant.
Money can cause problems in relationships, especially when there seems to be a lack of money. Whether you end up spending money on frivolous things that you can do without or just end up with no money left at the end of the month, here is a good technique that can get you started on working you towards solving your money problems and more importantly, getting your relationship back to good standing.
Start by documenting all expenditures and credits to your account for a month. Write down everything that you purchase and the price of it, whether it is through credit or cash. Once the month is up, go back through all that you have written down and look to find ways you can cut the money you have spent in the month. Consider buying in bulk, using coupons and paying attention to when things you buy go on sale. The goal is to implement the ideas you come up with to spend money more wisely.
Many people also find that a breakdown in communication can cause a total breakdown in the relationship itself. This can cause your relationship to spiral down into a relationship that is just barely alive. To avoid communication problems in your relationship, implement these ideas when communicating with your partner. Communication should not be considered a competition where you argue until the other person gives in. Think of things from the other persons' perspective. Be concerned with resolving the argument rather than being right and remember to have an open mind when you are communicating with your partner.
Work related stress can cause a huge strain on any type of relationship. Every job has some aspect that causes you stress and in order to keep your relationship on track, you will need to know how to deal with the stress that your job puts on you. You cannot just ignore work because you need to keep your job in order to have money. We must learn to deal with it. One way to achieve this is to find a way to release all the stress from the day and be sure to do that before you reach home. One example is exercising. Getting your blood pumping is a great way to take your mind off of the stress that your job has put on you for the day. Doing this on your way home can really benefit not only you but more importantly your relationship.
Relationships also become strained when people put their partner on a pedestal. It is nearly impossible to have two people in a relationship who have exactly the same feelings towards one another. There is always one person who loves, lusts or likes the other person more. This is just the way things are, but do not let this get you down, just be aware of it. Knowing this, you must learn to control the way you display your feelings for the other person in your relationship. You cannot change the way you feel about the other person, nor would you want to, but you can control how you show these feelings. Just try to moderate things and allow them to show their feelings towards you every once in a while instead of overloading them by showing them your feelings all the time.
Not taking full responsibility for yourself and your actions is the last thing I will discuss that can cause strain on a relationship. Putting the blame on others, especially when they are not at fault, can cause problems in a relationship and can also affect the relationships you have with everyone. You have to realize that you are the one and only person in the entire world who can control your feelings and thoughts. Your thoughts and feelings are affected by your perception of your outside world, but it is up to you to determine how to react to these things.
