... relationship counseling, divorce, and the divorce bill in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, quezon city, manila, philippines)

i was asked by abscbn's pia gutierrez of "bandila" about the common reasons for marital conflict.  i told that her that in my clinical practice, the top answer would have to be infidelity.  other reasons for conflict would be personality differences, jealousy, financial problems, sexual difficulties, problems with in-laws, domestic violence, stress from work, etc.  

i also told her that marital separation is best prevented by picking the right partner (this topic deserves to be a separate article in itself) and going through long-term and in-depth pre-marital counseling sessions (not like the one-day pre-marital counseling and family planning seminar required by Philippine law).
