Why Relationships Fail

Over half of all marriages in the United States end in divorce. Common reasons why relationships fail can be classified into one of the following:

Communication problems

Financial stress


Differences in priorities

Emotional incompatibility

Sexual incompatibility

Physical, sexual or emotional abuse.

Whether communication problems or incompatibilities seem to be why relationships fail for you, improving how you deal with conflict is a helpful relationship strategy. Dealing with problems as they occur, respecting your partner's feelings and perspective, and avoiding judgment and blame increase the chance of finding a mutually agreeable solution. Working together, instead of against each other, generates new ideas and growth that help overcome the problems you're facing.
