Couples bounded by love and/or law see different types of rollercoasters in their relationships. Some may face behavioural conflicts, others may face emotional inharmony, others may face sexual incompatibility, and others may face a combination of all of the above.

Relationships mostly comprises of two people with similar, different or contradicting personalities. Different personalities think, feel and behave in different manners. A couple might be exposed to about 50-100 different situations in a week where they are expected to take joint decisions. Now, when two people naturally ideate, emote and act differently, the chances of them having conflicts are, being generous, at least 50 % of the times.

To avoid conflicts, couples need to adjust, be flexible, be open-minded, compromise and communicate. To add to the complications, these parameters are mostly hampered by various different kinds of upbringing.

As per statistics, 99% of couples start fighting in the first 3 years of their relationships, about 20% of partners are unhappy in their relationships, about 50% of married couples all across the world get divorced, and about 40% of couples go to therapy to reconcile with their partners.
