Marital conflict arises when the inevitable tensions in marital relations cannot be contained, Where this escalates it can lead to arguments, verbal abuse and domestic violence.


The effect on the broader familyEdit

Problems between the parents can lead to the development of a dysfunctional family where the children take sides, act out their parents tension and use their behavior as a model for their own relationships. So a pattern of broader family violence can develop.

Help and treatmentEdit

Generally couples in conflict can benefit from outside help to gain an outside perspective on their marriage difficulties and in a safe space renegotiate their relationship. Some may require professional help to do this via marriage counselling or family therapy
