Relationship problems or marital problems come in all shapes and sizes. As a couple you don’t live in a vacuum, you are part of and contribute to everything and everyone around you. Money, sex and arguments are at the root of most couples' discontent.

There are times in all relationships when things don't run smoothly. Often, this is because people have conflicting expectations, are distracted with other issues, or have difficulty expressing what is on their minds in ways that other people can really hear and understand what is being said. Sometimes they just don't know what to do to make a good relationship.  

The way you talk (or don’t talk) to your partner can cause a lot of distress and tension.  It is vital to sit down calmly with your partner and discuss rationally any problems that may be occurring in your relationship not pretend the problems don't exist or will go away. Target the problem and try to work it out together.
