Marital Woes and the Reasons Behind It

1. Money problems

The most popular reason of all reasons. Before saying “I Do”, make sure you aren’t just crazy in love. You must also be financially stable.

2. Children

A child is the number one stressor in a marriage and can accentuate differences in beliefs on issues like how to discipline or who is responsible for most of the child care.

3. Time apart

Time apart and a lack of quality time together causes couples to become out of sync with each other.

4. Expectations

We all go into marriage with certain expectations. Most of the time, marriage is the opposite of what we expected. And when these expectations aren’t met, then that’s the time that most of us explodes.

5. Household Responsibilities

Many couples argue over equitable distribution of household work, and how to do it.This isn’t how it should be. if you see something that needs to be done, do it.
