Traumatic events are incidences that cause physical, emotional, spiritual, or psychological harm.
Sometimes relationships face challenges as a result of incidences between a couple. This can be a spouse who does something dishonest, or a partner who says hurtful things. Yet, in relationships there are some traumatic events that don’t come from the couple, but rather come from outside sources. For example, this can be a spouse who loses a mother or father, or one who get’s let go from their job. These outside traumatic events in relationships can be just as harmful to a marriage as an internal argument, if not handled with care and respect.
