Category: Relationship Problems
Relationship problems in life are at an alarming increase more than they ever were:
Our relationship repertoire in life is much wider at this point of time in the human history than it ever was. But at the same time it has also gone much shallower than it ever was since times immemorial.
We recently discovered a new type of relationship named virtual relationship that does away with all kinds of geographical limitations.
But the more we create new relationships, the less we interact with them.
And this is what creates newer and newer relationship problems:
Moreover we have become a little bit too busy with our own self in the pursuit of growing and developing everything that we can and doing it as fast as is possible.
We are not left with much spare time at our disposal to spend with our own self as well as with those we relate.
That’s why relationship problems are going on increasing in our life.
The divorce rate is still high in the U.S. at 53%. But Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, and Hungary are worse off with divorce rates higher than 60%. Belgium has the highest rate of divorce in this data set at a staggering 70%. The lowest official rate is in Chile with 3%.
A 2013 analysis conduct by WHO with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the Medical Research Council, based on existing data from over 80 countries, found that worldwide, almost one third (30%) of all women who have been in a relationship have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by their intimate partner.
As many as 275 million children worldwide are exposed to violence at home. 6 in 10 children aged 2 to 14 are regularly physically punished by caregivers.
It is estimated that roughly 30% to 60% of all married individuals (in the United States) will engage in infidelity at some point during their marriage. Research consistently shows that 2% to 3% of all children are the product of infidelity.
We seem to have created a hell out of our relationship problems born out of our insensitivity toward those we love and live together with.
What is going to be the future of the entity called relationship in our lives?
Already there are some whispers in the air…
