Relationship Problems?

Every relationship goes through stages of development.

Stages are often marked by important rituals and life events, like engagement, marriage, birth of children, school, adolescence, adulthood, middle age, silver years and death and dying.

In a relationship, two people find each other and as long as the sparks are flying, get into a relationship and explore making a greater commitment.

This first stage in relationship development is often referred to as the “honeymoon stage” where everything seems to go great and there is a lot of chemistry, fun and probably a lot of great sex too.

When you get beyond the “honeymoon stage” and enter into a longer term commitment,  eventually some crisis will put your relationship to the test.

Whether you are both comfortable with high conflict or not, this stage can determine the ultimate success of your relationship.

The conflicts at this stage can  be related to loss issues, death of loved one,  work, money, extended family, children, or attractions or affairs with other people.

Yes.  It happens to most relationships.

It looks like a huge crisis which has or will destroy your relationship.

However, if you can hang in there long enough and maybe get help, it is possible to manage the crisis productively and, believe it or not, build a better and stronger relationship.

Even when it looks the darkest, there is hope and things can get better.

  1. Any conflict in a relationship can be solved if both party is working for it. Both side must admit that they fall short and is willing to correct it. Yes, nobody is perfect but there is a perfect partnership.That is why we get married. LOVE never fails. Just do not forget to put JESUS CHRIST in the midst for HE is the one WHO will control everything. Turmoils may come in your relationship but you can be assured you cannot DEFEATED! For God wont allow temptation to come along your way if you cannot bear it.
