The 8 Most Common Relationship Issues

5. Unreasonable expectations

Unreasonable expectations are exactly that, unreasonable. Many men and women have crazy expectations about the institution of marriage and what that entails.  Resentment can build up if a partner feels particularly shocked with reality. These expectations and unexpected realities double for child raising, when lack of sleep, stress and financial pressure bring out conflicts in nearly every couple in the world. The list of areas where people have unrealistic expectations are nearly endless: how their partner should look, the job they should have, how much money they should earn etc. It’s important for both partners to take a step back and clearly state their expectations for different stages in their relationship.  If something seems extremely unreasonable to one of you, it probably is, at least for your specific relationship.  Seek advice and help from either friends or family who have gone through something similar, or an objective 3rd party such as a therapist or counselor.
