relationship problems

Relationship problems are like opinions: everyone seems to have a lot of them. You’d think that when you finally found someone you wanted to be with and they wanted to be with you that the hard part would be over, but the reality is, that’s when the real challenges and work begin.

We all have different ideas of how we want our relationships; some come from the relationships we witnessed growing up. If your parents had a strong relationship, you may want to create some of the things that you felt worked. Maybe you have some relatives who had volatile relationships and you subconsciously decide that you won’t do what they do; you’ll do the complete opposite.

While you may have certain ideas about relationships and your partner may have completely opposite ways of looking at them. You then must work to be on the same page and speak the same relationship language.

Now, throughout the entire span of your relationship, both you and your partner are going to grow and change. Sometimes these changes work well together but other times you can grow apart, and then you have a whole new set of relationship problems.

Communication is key to having a successful relationship. If you can’t listen to what your partner says (both with verbal language and body language), how can you expect to be heard yourself?

We all have our own cocktail of personality characteristics and some of them can be difficult to live with. Do you change just so you won’t annoy your partner and put extra stress on the relationship, or do you refuse and hope that it doesn't morph into an issue of conflict?

While there are issues with every couple, here are the 5 most common relationship problems for each zodiac sign.
