Divorce and Failed Relationships: What are the causes?

When people start a relationship, particularly in marriage, most aren't thinking that divorce is inevitable or likely. ("It happens to other people, but not us. Right, honey?") People are happy and excited about the future. However, all too often, relationships end, and this is often a traumatic or emotionally difficult time. So, what are possible causes for troubled relationships? What can people do to improve relationships before problems occur?

  1. You should check out this article that looks at the disposable divorce era (http://www.freemychild.com/pdf/fm_disposabledivorce.pdf) and how these problems stem from a lack of communication and commitment in relationships. People seem to be so focused on having their own needs met, that they will give up on relationships without trying working on things.

  2. Mabbe I am too young to discuss this topic, but I still have some suggestion. I think communication is the most important part. When 2 people get married, they must understand each other. When the problem come, people like to hide thier feeling but they just blame each other. Lack of communication will break the relationship. Talk and understanding are important to keep the relationship.

  3. I think a part of problem is a difference of 2 people's personality. Initially when they start a relationship, they haven't realize it. After marriage, the recognize is too late. They don't sympathize each other even. When they have pressure in work and their relationships, they don't share together. For a long time, there's seem a distance between them and they're far away from each other. Finally divorce is inevitable. Maybe there are no ways to repair their failed relationships.
