5 Common Reasons Why Marriages Fail – Must See For All Couples

Drawing from my experience as a relationship therapist…here are ten most common reasons why marriages fail.

1. Poor Boundaries;

Engaging in intimate conversations with members of the opposite s*x leads to emotional experiences that cloud judgement, trigger fantasy life, and progress toward physical intimacy outside of marriage. The connection and acceptance found in an illicit relationship divert energy from solving problems with one’s spouse.

2. Selfishness

There needs to be fairness in the distribution of work and responsibility within the relationship. This willingness to extend oneself also pertains to meeting emotional needs. Placing one’s desires consistently ahead of a partner’s emotional needs and responding only when it is a matter of convenience, demand or negotiations would leave a partner feeling unloved.

3. Lack Of Emotional Intimacy;

The lack of sharing one’s feelings, goals, hurts, struggles, joys and emotional details of one’s life leads to loneliness and sadness. Feelings of friendship and partnership come from being connected through interest, deep listening and empathy, mutual support, and sharing perspective as confidants.

4. Disrespectful judgements;

Marriage needs acceptance, admiration, appreciation, and emotional safety. Feelings of anger and hurt follow when the process of exploring differences or contrasting opinions consistently degenerates into criticism, impatience, labelling, contempt, or discrediting one’s thoughts or feelings.

5. Explosive, angry outbursts or rages;

Anger can have a useful purpose if it is listened to and leads to dialogue and useful problem solving. However, anger can create even more anger or withdrawal. Both can interfere with effective communication.
