Top 5 Relationship Patterns to Not Ignore Quiz


Most people enter a relationship desiring a healthy, lasting union or marriage. Yet most people are ill-equipped to develop a healthy connection and navigate the difficulties life presents. There are natural stages of a relationship. Summarized, they can be described as The Honeymoon → The Crisis → The Decision → Deep Attachment.

During the Honeymoon Phase, our brain is flooded with dopamine, also known as the pleasure hormone. Every touch or look from your partner, or thought about them comes with a flush of desire. Over time dopamine levels decrease and levels of oxytocin and vasopressin increase, which are the hormones associated with long-term attachment and comfort.

This change in hormones brings an unveiling of sorts. All of those things that we overlooked or thought were cute are now front and center, and quite possibly under our skin. We are no longer enamored with everything our partner does, and we start to notice our partner’s flaws. This hormonal change creates natural friction in the relationship, and this is typically referred to as coming out of the Honeymoon Phase.

When this happens, it is common for couples to start questioning if they are with the right person, or if their relationship is healthy. It is also common for couples to try to work through this friction, only to find they struggle to do so. After attempting to address the friction with their existing skill set, they either blow up or give up on trying to solve the problem. Giving up often turns into avoidance which over time creates more challenges.
