We, as human beings, are not perfect; we make mistakes. We can’t really have anything to a pitch perfect level. Relationships are no exception, almost every couple encounters a problem or two, during their relationship. Here are some common relationship problems and their one-liner solutions:
Lack of Communication
This is the root cause of all relationship related problems. The problem is known to both partners but they’re both afraid to talk about it. They don’t realise that talking about their problems, early on can save their relationships.
Solution: Just talk about it; the first time you feel something isn’t right. It is better to put it out there than dwelling on it in your mind.
Blaming each other instead of accepting mistakes is another very common relationship problem. Both the partners aren’t ready to accept their mistakes and this leads to endless arguments without any workable outcome.
Solution: Just remember that accepting your mistakes is a very noble thing to do. Accept your mistakes and talk about, sincerely, how you can avoid them or make up for them.
This usually happens during fights. Where one partner may say things like ‘I earn more than you’, ‘My life is way harder than you’. If one of the partners feel somehow superior to the other, than it can create many other problems like lack of respect for your partner, not giving him/her importance that he/she deserves.
Solution: If you think life is hard, know that life is hard for everyone. You can’t really know about the difficulties your partner feels, because you’re not with them all the time. Treat your significant other as your true “Partner”, think of him/her as an equal human being. You can never be true ‘soul mates’ if you feel you are somewhat superior.
Lack of empathy
When someone is in a relationship, he/she expects many things from his/her partner. Problems arise when these expectations become impossible to meet and often irrational. For instance, the woman might want to go out for dinner but her husband is really tired, but she wants to do it anyway. Or the husband expects the woman to take care of the house, the children etc. to a perfect, and often humanly impossible, level.
Solution: Put yourself at place of your partner. Ask yourself, and answer honestly, that- would you be able to do the things you expect him/her to do?
Losing the passion
Early on in a relationship, everything looks perfect, you feel like you have the world with you if you’re with your partner. However, after a few years, this passionate fire starts to die. The partners don’t feel that special thing for each other; anymore. The relationship becomes boring and life has a mechanical feel to it.
