Inspired by All Women Stalk, here are a few ways these relationship problems can be identified and avoided:

1. Not spending enough time with your partner: Couples get busy with life most times that they don't meet each other's emotional need well enough. To avoid this couples should always try to plan time and clear out every schedule to spend quality time together.

2. Careless spending: At times two people who love each other may have different opinions on how money gotten should be spent. A problem could arise if funds are thoroughly mismanaged by one partner. To avoid this a spending plan should always be mapped out and agreed upon by both parties.

3. Unresolved problems: Most couples have one or two problems between them which will be left unresolved because both cannot reach a compromise. These could lead to a bigger because it keeps coming up every now and then. To avoid this couples should learn to agree to disagree which means reaching a common ground.

4. Communication: It's one of the most common relationship dangers. Conflicts are bound to arise between couples. Good communication prevents it from escalating. To avoid this issue, one partner should be calm when the other is angry.

5. Not liking a family member in your partner's family: It could be your partner's mother, sibling or friend. It's understandable if you can't help it but all you need to remember that your relationship is just between you and your partner. You shouldn't try to let your dislike get in the way of the love you both share.
