Relationships can be a rollercoaster ride. One minute things are going great, the next may be problematic. It’s really up to the couple on how they’re going to weather each issue that goes their way. Some issues may be more intense while some are just petty. For most Singaporean couples, they’ll have more chances in overcoming most of these obstacles if they’re going to think of themselves as partners in the real sense of the word especially when it comes to achieving a common goal in their relationship which is essentially just making it work. When they do, they’ll have better chances of coping with these problems most couples deal with.

Lack of communication

Lack of communication in a relationship is a recipe for disaster. Some couples are not able to learn the skills of positive communication and taking all out on the table. It is important to clearly communicate to your partner what ticks you, what disappoints you, what you want, and what you don’t want. Don’t expect your partner to guess all these for you. It’s also equally important to learn how to listen to your partner when he or she is trying to tell you something.

Dissatisfied sexual relationship

It’s important to respect your partner’s sexual desires and needs. A relationship can go wrong when a partner is often declined when they initiate the act of sex. Being rejected and being unhappy in bed are just some of the petty reasons partners give to justify their infidelity.

Finances

Individuals may have different attitudes when it comes to taking care of their finances. Some are more lax while there are others who can be a control freak. It’s important to discuss your financial traits, values, obligations, and goals early on in the relationship. Couples may need to learn sharing for common expenses or helping each other out when it comes to financial obligations. There are couples who break up because they’re unable to settle their financial responsibilities to themselves.

Petty conflicts

Some people believe that having petty conflicts in relationships is better than having that one time big time argument that can lead to breakup. Couples need to learn how to settle their differences in order to deal with petty conflicts. When it comes to arguments, it’s best to resolve it as soon as possible or to not take it to the next day.
