Four Stressors In A Relationship That You Should Be Aware Of


Sometimes, even the most dedicated couples fail to avoid resentment in their relationship. Resentment is hard to recognize but it facilitates hollow relationships. It tears apart the fundamental bonds that bind two people together. However, the mere presence of animosity does not indicate that your relationship is doomed. It simply indicates that you need to work on determining its cause so that you and your partner can attempt to rebuild the respect and love that you both deserve.

Elizabeth articulated that this includes finding out how to best navigate a challenging parenting situation, how to pay your taxes along with planning on how to handle the situation when you get in a fight with your partner.


In this, you hold onto family worries such as what will happen if you forget to make that deposit to the bank today.


This includes taking care of or noticing the things that are supposed to be done and asking others to do them.

Elizabeth advises that both people in a relationship should feel fair, otherwise the relationship will likely suffer.
