A relationship goes through numerous phases during its life cycle, and it is obvious for it to have a few rough patches. However, the strength of a relationship is reflected in how the couples deal with those rough patches, and move ahead. Modern lifestyles and thinking has changed the pattern of thinking of people in respect to relationships. This has turned the statistics for divorce and marriage in the last couple of decades, upside down.
