    Communication Problems

    Feeling ecstatic about having each other around is what triggers the feeling of getting married ASAP. But, this feeling may not last after marriage. When young couples get bombarded with responsibilities, their families and the household they are bound to work harder spending more time on work than inside the house, which leaves no time to communicate with each other. This may also lead to a stressed sex life.

    Issues with Spouse’s Family

    Young people are impulsive and they like to live life on their own terms. Hence, they might not take being guided by in-laws in good spirit. However, parents are of this opinion that the onus lies on them to show their kids the right path when it comes making decisions, especially after marriage. This clash of opinions leads to heated arguments and negativity in the house.

    Parenting Problems

    The issue of having children may also be the cause of conflict between young couples. The relationship may undergo a lot of strain when either of the two wants a child and the other one does not wish to expand the family. Also, couples who have children in young age automatically shift their priority to kids leaving them with very less time to spend with each other.
