The hectic pace of our modern world can cause many couples to suffer from high levels of stress. As a result, tension and conflict can make it difficult to maintain honest communication. As a result, many married couples suffer from a wide range of pressures and challenges that can place a strain on their relationship. The impact of these pressures can be overwhelming and difficult to manage without professional help.
Marital problems can affect both people’s performance at work as well as their relationships with their family members and children. The pain caused by someone you care for deeply can be difficult to deal with. Every marriage has its ups and downs and at times these problems can seem intense and painful and those pains may last a very long time.
Marital problems can range from minor to crisis-level, with each demanding a different level of help. Knowing how to navigate your marriage through your current obstacles is a difficult task that requires professional help.
Here are some signs your marriage may be suffering:
- Your family and friends are beginning to recognize a problem that needs addressing. People outside of your marriage can often spot a serious problem before you can.
- Your children’s behavior has shifted recently. Younger children may act out at school, around friends, or even at home. Teenagers may become involved in activities that are out of character.
- Physical abuse is never ok. If you are experiencing physical abuse in your marriage, your first concern is safety. Contact your local abuse hotline or the police.
- The discovery of an extramarital affair can be an extremely painful moment in a marriage. The damage that accompanies this discovery are similar to a traumatic event. Anger, depression, shock, denial and many other emotions are all normal. When this level of hurt occurs, you need to seek professional help.
