According to a study presented to SLEEP 2008, a meeting of Associated Professional Sleep Societies, 50 percent of 3,000 women who were unhappy in their marriages suffered from sleeping ailments, such as insomnia. Wendy Troxel, a University of Pittsburgh psychologist, states that an unhappy marriage is a source of stress, thus leading to trouble sleeping. If a married woman is having trouble sleeping due to stress in the marriage, sleep specialist Donna Arand of the Kettering Hospital Sleep Disorders Center suggests seeking the help of a sleep specialist as well as a marriage counselor.
While times may occur when sexual intimacy is lacking, an unhappily married woman may withdraw from an emotional or physical relationship with her spouse. Stress levels in a relationship increase when the spouse wants sex but the woman does not. According to Health Guidance, women who are having intimacy troubles due to stress or unhappiness in a marriage may use counseling to see if the relationship can be repaired.
Lack of Communication
One of the key factors in a successful marriage is communication, and once that is lost, the chance of separation or divorce increases. If a married woman begins to withhold feelings, a lack of trust may develop between her and her husband. A lack of communication harms the marriage on many levels, especially emotionally, and the foundation of the marriage is likely to break down. According to Health Guidance, a couple who experiences a communication breakdown may have been dealing with it since the beginning of the relationship, yet did not understand it as it continued to become a problem. If issues with communication existed prior to marriage, it is likely that a lack of communication will become a major roadblock.
