Most people do not think they are in a volatile relationship until violence sets on and it is too late to get help. Most of the time, even in volatile relationships, couples enjoy a good time. But a small fraction of the time, they get into arguments and even fights. However, the consistency and extent of violence should be big signs of a volatile relationship.
Signs of a volatile relationship include bitter arguments for even the slightest mistakes by either partners, or insensitivity to the partners’ emotions. You may experience weeks of minimal communication or even silence. You may avoid each other and fail to find a way to reconnect with each other.
Most people in volatile relationships have found themselves feeling distant and unfamiliar to their partner. Fortunately, 90% of these relationships can be fixed. If both partners are willing to look into the triggers of their discontentment with each other and practice a positive strategy when dealing with each other, the relationship can only get better.
