10 Relationship Problems You Might Not Know But Are Universal To All Couples

Hitting the rough patch and arguing from time to time is quite inevitable. Even if you love the other person deeply, you are at some point bound to have a difference of opinion. But chances are, these are issues that almost every couple faces but never really shows upfront.

However it is not only natural to fight with your partner as long as you fight without menace. Which means it’s totally okay to argue and put your point of view forth but it is equally important to also understand and respect the point of view of your partner.

The bottom line is, as long as you are able to communicate like adults you will go strong in your relationships. And in case you need a general idea, here are 10 universal problems that every couple at some point goes through:


Feeling bored in a relationship.

After a point, the spark dies and it’s obvious for you to feel lost and wondering where this is all headed. In times like these just remember one thing – “This too shall pass”, and keep working towards it rather than giving up by wallowing in negativity.

Giving up on your significant other more than usual.

Knowing somebody also means predicting their pattern of behaviour, and if you know your partner well enough you’re bound to give up on them without even trying. This is one of the reasons people tend to grow apart as they stop trying hard after a point. The thing is you can’t have possibly figured out everything about a person ever, so don’t lose hope and give it one more chance.

Starting to have a prejudiced mind.

There’s a thin line between being pessimistic and having a prejudiced mind. Little do we notice the harm it brings into our relationship when we constantly undermine the other person without giving them the benefit of doubt.

Running out of topics to talk.

Isn’t this a common thing that couples face? When you’ve spent more than a decade with your partner or poured your heart out right in the beginning, you will tend to run out of topics eventually. But then again this isn’t the end of the world, there will be more adventures and more things coming your way for which you will need that one person who gets you no matter what. So until then, enjoy this newness and things will get back to normal in no time.

Disagreeing on things you agreed on before.

This is the most natural thing that happens to everyone at some point. Because anything in excess can only ruin things up, be it love, affection or anger. The only way to avoid these little quarrels is to communicate like adults.

Lack of trust.

Doubts in a relationship are normal. It’s human nature to question things in life. If you’re happy in a relationship, try not to dwell on the doubts. Instead, focus on the positive aspects of your relationship that make you feel that you are right for each other.

Wanting to get some space.

The need to get some space mostly arrives from the feeling of boredom. It doesn’t mean you immediately start looking for something out of the relationship but rather work on fixing things that need to be paid attention to.

Experiencing insecurity.

Almost every couple will experience bouts of jealousy from time to time. We all go through it to a certain degree. The key to overcome it is to communicate and build trust.

Picking up fights on naive issues.

It is absolutely natural to sometimes pick fights that you both know you will laugh at when you look back on them. But don’t make the mistake of making this into a habit that affects your relationship.

Cutting each other short.

To make a relationship last, having good communication skills is crucial. One of the biggest no-nos? Not being an active and thoughtful listener.
