What are relationship issues?

Relationship issues are conflicts, problems, and issues that affect a romantic partnership like marriage. While there is nothing like a perfect relationship, and you can expect highs and lows, some fights, and arguments, the issues, if left unaddressed can cause a rift between the partners.

These affect the quality of the relationship, cause resentment to brew, make the environment toxic, and pave way for hostility and breakup. As per Gulf News, 62% of couples divorce within 4 years of marriage.

What are the effects of relationship issues?

The impact of unresolved relationship issues can vary from person to person, but some common issues and consequences include:

  • Stress
  • Contempt for the partner
  • Infidelity
  • Lack of love and appreciation
  • Bitterness
  • Rifts, that cause partner to drift apart
  • Low self-esteem
  • Mental health issues
  • High anxiety levels
  • Abuse
  • Stonewalling
  • Increased defensiveness
  • Bad for physical health, causing problems like poor heart health, weight issues, lowered immunity, etc.
  • Increase self-doubt
  • Loneliness
  • Insecurity
  • Lowered productivity and motivation

What are some of the more common relationship issues?

Communication issues

Communication issues result when partners are:

  • Not listening to each other
  • Not voicing themselves to begin with
  • Not talking to each other honestly
  • Things are getting lost in translation
  • Not directly communicating with each other

Lack of effective communication leads to misunderstandings, conflict, adversity, and other problems.

Attachment issues in a relationship

Attachment issues occur when one person does not feel safe in the relationship. Such people also have trouble trusting their partners, which could lead to conflict then. Some issues that can result include:

  • Partner feeling insecure
  • Lack of comfort with the partner
  • Not prioritizing the partner
  • Inability to see a future with your partner

Money issues in a dating relationship are less common than those in marriage, but they do occur, nonetheless. Often, financial issues can result when:

  • A partner is spending money carelessly
  • One partner is hogging the money
  • The autonomy to spend the money is taken away from the partner

It is also common to run into issues due to age disparity, for example, older man younger and woman relationship issues are more common than ballpark same-age couples.

Abandonment issues

Abandonment issues result when one of the partners experiences anxiety about losing their partner. These issues cause the relationship to become unhealthy, but posing signs like:

  • Insecurity
  • Clinginess
  • Lack of boundaries
  • Giving too much to the partner
  • Pleasing them at your own expense

Anger issues in a relationship

If one of the partners has anger management issues, it can then lead to relationship issues like:

  • Fights
  • Conflict
  • Abuse
  • Not speaking to each other
  • Fear
