Many young couples do not know that there may be a problem in their relationship. Here are some examples that I have seen occur when I work with younger couples.
1. Assume that their partner should “get them” without opening up to their partner
2. Forgetting to talk about responsibilities and boundaries
3. Not wanting to break the positive energy by bringing up something negative
4. Not being realistic with setting combined financial goals
5. Trying to fix the other person
If some of these behaviors resonate with your relationship, do not worry! The good thing is that the behaviors and skills to fix these common mistakes can be taught if you are willing to learn.
