Resolving Marriage Differences

Sometimes, married couples and families find themselves struggling. This may be because of temporary tensions in the marriage such as illness or job loss. A family may also have problems of longer duration that need to work out such as infertility, debt, and issues with relations that are less than ideal with other family members like their in-laws. Over time, such issues may cause even greater problems and make it hard for family members to fully communicate effectively. A couple may even become estranged and find themselves contemplating the breakup of the relationship or a divorce that neither party really wants.
