The first year of a relationship is the most difficult stage, as it is a completely new experience in the form of a new person becoming an integral part of our life. This is when couples begin to recognize their differences and learn their love languages. The five stages of a relationship are fusion, doubt and denial, disappointment, decision and unconditional love. The most difficult stage of a relationship is when all doubts arise and the intoxicating feeling mostly fades away.
To overcome this stage, couples should take a step back and look at their emotions and relationship, actively ask themselves if this person really is the best fit for them, and consider taking a new path to work a little before making a decision about the relationship. It is also important to remember and appreciate all the good times spent together, set ongoing goals for self-care and personal growth, and add humor and laughter to marriage.
