What are a Couple of Issues?
Couple issues are any problems or disagreements that arise between partners. These can be small or large disagreements, and they can occur in any area of a relationship.
The most common areas where couples experience couple issues are sex, money, communication style, parenting styles, division of household tasks, and conflict resolution.
Although the term “couple issues” may seem to imply that they are problems or behaviors that apply solely between two people in a relationship (and not with anyone else). The truth is that they can also affect other relationships in the individual’s life, such as with friends, family members, and co-workers.
Types of Couple Issues
There can be several issues that might be putting a strain on your relationship with your partner. Some common problems are:
Communication problems can arise when one partner feels like they’re not being heard, or when they feel like their partner isn’t taking their concerns seriously. This can lead to frustration and resentment on both sides. If these problems aren’t addressed, they can often result in the dissolution of the relationship.
Infidelity is one of the biggest relationship killers. If you can’t trust your partner, the relationship is doomed. Trust is essential in any relationship, and if it’s broken, it’s often very difficult to repair.
Struggles with sexual desire and/or frequency of sexual activity can cause a lot of strain on a couple. If one partner isn’t sexually satisfied, they may become withdrawn and start to question their needs in a relationship. Likewise, if a person feels forced or obligated to have sex, it can create resentment towards the other person.
Differing Parenting Styles
Arguments about parenting can put enormous strain on a couple’s relationship. Sometimes, one parent may feel like the other person is too permissive with their child. Other times, one parent may feel like the other person is too harsh with their kid. These disagreements can often lead to feelings of resentment and hurt within the relationship.
Physical abuse is never okay. Couples should feel physically and emotionally safe with one another, and if one person isn’t that way, they may turn to emotional or physical violence to get their point across.
Both partners need to be on the same page when it comes to issues of money. If you’re constantly fighting about who spends too much or who saves too much, it can create a lot of tension in the relationship. Financial difficulties can also lead to feelings of insecurity and doubt within a couple.
Types Of Couples
There are three types of couples based on sexuality- heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual.
- Heterosexual couples are those in which the partners are attracted to people of the opposite sex.
- Homosexual couples are those where both partners are attracted to people of the same sex.
- Bisexual couples are those where partners are attracted to people of both sexes
- A heteroflexible couple is a couple in which one partner is primarily attracted to people of the opposite sex, but will occasionally have sexual relationships with people of the same sex.
How can therapy help with Couples of Issues?
Couple counseling can help address issues such as communication, trust, and intimacy. It can also help resolve conflict and build a stronger relationship. Couples therapy is typically short-term, lasting between 6 and 12 sessions.
The first session will typically involve an evaluation of the relationship. The therapist will ask questions about your history, current issues, and goals for counseling.
The next few sessions will be devoted to exploring the issues that you and your partner have been struggling with.
It’s a good idea to prepare for these sessions by thinking about specific examples that apply to your relationship. You can also bring in journal entries or photos that represent how you’ve been feeling.
Therapy options for Couple Issues
There are different types of couples therapy available, depending on the couple’s needs. Some common types of couples therapy include:
- Behavioral Couples Therapy: This type of therapy helps couples identify and change destructive behaviors that are harming their relationship.
- Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy: This type of therapy helps couples understand and manage the emotions that are causing problems in their relationship.
- Systems Couples Therapy: This type of therapy helps couples understand how their relationship is affected by their family and social environment.
- Gottman Method Couples Therapy: This type of therapy focuses on helping couples build a healthy, lasting relationship based on friendship, love, and commitment.
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: This type of therapy helps couples understand how their thoughts and interpretations affect their feelings and behaviors toward each other.
- Psychodynamic Couples Therapy: This type of therapy seeks to uncover mental, emotional, and behavioral patterns in both partners that are affecting the relationship negatively.
Choosing the right type of couples therapy is an important decision. It is important to work with a therapist who has experience and training in the type of therapy that is best suited for your needs.

If your partner is always there for you, both physically and emotionally, then they are likely very committed to the relationship. Likewise, if your partner regularly goes out of their way to make you happy, then they are likely very invested in the relationship. If your partner does not exhibit these behaviors, it may be cause for concern.
If your partner is not very communicative, try sitting down with them and having a conversation about why this is important to you. If they still do not change their behavior, you may need to consider whether this is a relationship you want to be in.
If your partner always needs space, there may be something going on that they are not comfortable discussing with you. This could be a sign that there are some unresolved issues in the relationship. If your partner continues to refuse to discuss this with you, it may be time to end the relationship.
Yes, it is normal for partners to have different interests. This does not mean that your relationship is doomed, it just means that you will have to make an effort to understand each other’s interests. Try attending some events or activities that your partner is interested in and learn more about what they like.
If your partner is not very attentive, try doing something that will catch their attention. For example, wear something that you know they find attractive or do something that is out of the ordinary. If your partner still does not seem to be paying attention, you may need to have a serious discussion with them about why this is important to you.
