Description:
Relationships between couples, both married and unmarried, are central to the lives of many, if not most adults. They can be a source of great happiness and fulfilment but they can also be the source of great distress and even illness when they go wrong. Marital conflict, including separation and divorce, are not always negative although they tend to have negative impacts on the health and well-being of couples; where children are involved, they are often adversely affected as well. In serious marital conflict, the choice is often between situations which are less harmful over those which are more harmful, rather than between situations which are either purely harmless or purely harmful. In other words, some of the harm caused by serious marital conflict, including separation and divorce, cannot easily be avoided, although it may be minimised. Couples whose relationship has broken down irretrievably can often do less harm to themselves and their children if they separate. Other couples can do less harm, and probably much good, if they address their relationship problems and find a way of adjusting and accommodating to each others’ needs.
