Marital Problems

In India, there are various cultural, religious and ethnic groups that have their own characteristic approaches and attitudes in regulating the family relations. The stress and strain of modern-day life, changing values in our life, disintegration of a joint family system and other factors are taking a toll on family relationships. As a result, we are witnessing a sharp increase in marital conflicts and also in the number of cases being filed in courts of law for dissolution of marriage, maintenance, custody of children, the partition of joint family properties, etc…

Marital relations play a very important role in family functioning. If there are positive marital relations the functioning of the family as a whole will be healthy. Otherwise, the family is disrupted, particularly having a devasting effect on the lives of children thereby the whole family becomes an unhappy family. Keeping a marriage healthy and happy over time takes work and is sometimes quite a difficult task.

Common issues leading to marital conflict are:

    • Lack of adjustment
    • Poor communication & understanding
    • Sexual dysfunctions
    • Poor acceptance in-laws
    • Lack of respect
    • Adultery
    • Over-attachment to own parents
    • Suspicious nature of the spouse
    • Psychological disorders
    • Financial problems
    • Desertion or neglect
    • Physical abuse and
    • Addictions



A successful marriage depends on two things, finding the right person and being the right person. Couples who are both motivated to keep their marriage alive will have better chances of recovery. Marital therapy or couple’s therapy is used to solve marital problems. It helps couples understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Marital therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, argue in a healthier way and solve problems.
