You hear people say that relationships aren’t easy all the time. There are bound to be highs and lows. That’s the beauty of the unpredictability of life. But hopefully, there will be more peaks than troughs. If you’ve hit a bump in the road, don’t throw the towel in just yet. Often, it’s possible to overcome obstacles and get back on solid ground. Here are some of the most common relationship hurdles and some tips to get you back on track.
Time
     Time is a luxury many of us don’t have. If you think about an average day, how long have you got to spend quality time with your partner? If you have children, looking after them is a 24-hour job, and if you work long hours, you may feel like you’re stuck in a constant conveyor belt of work and sleep. If you are struggling to make time for each other, and it’s having a negative impact on your relationship, think about how you could make the situation better. Try and make time for each other. When you’re scheduling, make sure there’s a slot for a date every week or month or even just some downtime when you can chill out together. Make each other your priority, and try and manage your time better if you find it hard to say no to others or your tail is always in a spin. Take advantage of offers of help from the people closest to you. If your mom and dad are always suggesting they take the kids for a sleepover or a day out, take them up on their offer from time to time.
Money
     Most couples argue about money at some stage in their relationship, and for some, this can be a constant source of anxiety and stress. If you’re worried about paying the bills, your partner has a more flippant attitude to spending than you or one partner earns a lot more than the other, this may cause ructions. If you are rowing all the time, don’t call in the divorce attorneys just yet. Sit down, have a proper frank and honest chat, and try and identify the problems that are causing you to fall out. If you can’t reach a compromise or find a resolution, it may be worth seeing a financial adviser or talking to a couple’s therapist.
Distance

Long-distance relationships can be incredibly hard. Sometimes, all you want is to be together, but if your partner works away or travels on a regular basis, you may not get to see each other as often as you’d like. Phone and video calls enable you to communicate easily, but sometimes, this isn’t enough. If it is possible, try and visit each other, but stay in constant contact if this isn’t a viable option. You don’t have to rely on modern technology. Shaking things up with a delivery in the mail is a cute way of letting your partner know you’re missing them.

Love isn’t always a bed of roses. Sometimes, you’ll come across challenges as a couple, and trying to get through tough times will make you stronger. If you’ve hit a stumbling block, don’t give up. Work together to pinpoint the problem and find a solution.

In any relationship there are problems and hurdles. Hurdles doesn't state that you should break the relation or something else. I believe that we should give a chance for the relationship and keep faith in each other while being in a relationship.
