Causes EXTERNAL CAUSES Arrange Marriage

The unsurety and doubts one may have regarding their partners and married life can make one apprehensive

Expectations

In a love marriage, fulfilling the expectations and providing the same support for life long can be exhausting. For example- to be accepted by the new family in the same way as done by the partner; to be loved the same way as before marriage; the expectation for undying support from the spouse.

Work Stress

Frustration and stress due to workload or responsibilities may sometimes get deflected on their spouse leading to arguments and fights.

In-Laws or Parents

djustment in a new family with different traditions, roles, expectations or values can be challenging for the partner moving in, who is trying to seek the love and acceptance and forming a relationship with every person can take its own time. Along with that for the partner who belongs to that family, may have to maintain a balance between spouse and parents.

Children

When children come into picture, a lot of attention and time is given to them thus spouses cannot focus on each other, fulfil their basic needs or spend quality time.

INTERNAL CAUSES Love Language

People may have different style of expressing love so understanding that can be difficult. For example- one partner may express their love through hugs and physical intimacy, whereas the other one may express their love through emotional intimacy and wants to spend quality time with their spouse.

Past Experiences

Partners coming from dysfunctional families or have gone through tragic experiences can have emotional or mental setbacks which can impact their relationships/marriage.

Difference In Goals

There can be different goals the partners may have in their minds, be it career goals, emotional development, future planning, spiritual likeability, mental connection, etc. Also, goals don’t tend to remain the same for both partners so accommodating these changes might become challenging.

As mentioned earlier there can be challenges at different levels, those can be internal (partners’ feelings) or external (in-laws, work, etc.); and all these can be interlinked.

Hence, to deal with these challenges, the couple can undergo therapy so that both of them are provided with the same platform that is unbiased, a platform where both the partners are heard hold equal position in the marriage and get a space to express their feelings.
