We all know that life creates challenges and difficulties that affect us everywhere, including in our relationships.
Stress in marriage and stress in relationships is inherent to being part of a couple.
Psychologists call difficulties that threaten your relationship marital stressors. A marital stressor could be an influence, event, or circumstance that threatens or challenges a marriage.
Some common causes of stress in marriage and relationships
Common causes of stress include running a business, difficulties finding or keeping a job, money troubles, intimacy issues, parenting, infidelity, and clashes with in-laws. Stress can trigger conflicts and tension at home. Continued periods of stress can drive a wedge between you and your spouse, subtly pushing you apart over time with little apparent animosity.
You can fight these silent relationship killers by getting help for you and your spouse or partner. In couples coaching, you can learn to recognize challenges to your relationship and learn skills for meeting those challenges.
