Common Causes of Relationship Problems and How To Avoid Them

When you first meet that special someone, it seems like you’re made for each other. Chances are you like the same things, agree on just about everything, and it’s hard to imagine what life would be like without that person. However, as time goes on, every couple has disagreements, and the longer you’re together, the more complex those disagreements are likely to become. In a world where the majority of relationships are predestined to come to an end, what can you do to make sure yours lasts? The answer lies in being aware of some of the most common causes of relationship problems and then creating a plan to try to avoid them — or handle them effectively when they do occur.

In today’s blog from Blair Wellness Group in Beverly Hills, we’re going to discuss some of the most common causes of relationship problems and how to avoid them. If you would like to strengthen your relationship or get help for overcoming conflict and are interested in relationship therapy in Beverly Hills, contact us to make an appointment. 

Poor Communication

Communication is essential to every relationship. Unfortunately, many couples struggle to communicate effectively with their partner. This can be attributed to something as simple as not making the time to talk or it can be complicated by poor communication styles. For instance, trying to stay positive, learning to actively listen to your partner, and avoiding emotional or angry outbursts are just a few things you can do to improve your communication.  

Financial Troubles

Just about every couple deals with financial problems that put a strain on their relationship. Even if you make a comfortable living, arguments may arise on how money should be spent and how it should be saved. Communication is the key to avoid having money be the root of your relationship troubles. Set aside time to discuss your financial situation, don’t assign blame for debt, and work together to determine your short-term and long-term goals. Being open and honest will allow you to build trust and avoid many of the conflicts couples have over finances.

Lack of Physical Intimacy

There are several factors that influence a healthy relationship and maintaining a healthy sex life is one of them. Nurturing physical intimacy is difficult for many couples, for many reasons. Not having enough time or being too tired after taking care of other responsibilities are two of them, but sexual issues can also be attributed to present or past abuse or concerns over sexual performance.    

Consider Relationship Therapy in Beverly Hills

Most people have heard the phrase “relationships take work”, and despite their best efforts, many couples can benefit from meeting with a professional therapist. Dr. Cassidy Blair of Blair Wellness Group is a licensed, clinical psychologist who specializes in relationship and intimacy issues. If you need help overcoming your challenges so you can build a strong and healthy relationship, contact Blair Wellness Group today to schedule individual or couples therapy.

What it Means to be in a Lopsided Relationship

In most relationships, people don’t keep score. So, it’s easy to miss it when a relationship becomes lopsided, with one partner putting in all of the work, or “overfunctioning,” while the other is dependent on their partner for financial or emotional support, or “underfunctioning.”  Functioning in a relationship means one’s ability to make decisions, take
