Do you feel like your marriage is in danger? That is probably the easiest way to understand what encompasses a marriage crisis. While, “in danger” seems like a vague definition, our intuition and feelings are often the best guide to gauge the health of our relationships and point out looming danger.
A marriage crisis or marital distress is any hurdle in the marriage which, to the couple, seems too difficult to overcome. The nature of it varies greatly from marriage to marriage, as do its causes and solutions.
