Pay attention!

Relationship problems are a fact of life and every couple goes through them.

After the honeymoon phase is over, the problems begin. This doesn’t mean you have to give up though.

Take a close look at your relationship. Where do you spend most of your time? Are you caught up with the children or focusing on work?

One of the most common problems I see in my practice with couples is their inability to manage conflict.  

Dr. John Gottman, founder of the Gottman Institute, is a premier researcher on relationships. It’s not surprising that he found all couples have conflict.

What’s important is that you repair after the conflict and learn to manage the conflict. He found that 69 percent of problems in a relationship are unsolvable.

What does this mean? You need to understand the problem before you can solve it. There is nothing worse than feeling like your partner doesn’t understand you. This is when you begin to feel emotionally isolated in the relationship.
