Relationship Problems

Introduction to Relationship Problems

This topic center concerns marriage and marriage-like relationship problems. Our aim here is to educate the reader about the nature of such problems and to illuminate what can be done to solve them when that is possible. We’re going to use the term ‘marriage’ here for the most part, but it should be understood that what we have to say applies more or less as readily to domestic unions and most other types of cohabiting committed ‘romantic’ relationships, whether homosexual or heterosexual in orientation. The state may define marriage rather narrowly, but we take it as a given that relationship problems do not discriminate.
