Are you affected by a Relational Disorder?

If a relationship is sour, it is "generally" because both partners are at fault. A relational disorder is a disorder upon which there is not necessarily a problem with each individual, but there is a problem with the "relationship" itself. Generally, the people within the relationship have extreme communication problems and cannot relate to each other. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Disorders (DSMV), "a relationship can exhibit psychological characteristics" even though it does not have a mind. In other words, the problems may not necessarily be with the individuals however, it does exist in the relationship.  

Often times when people are having these issues, their relationships is destroyed or the people within the relationship have extremely difficult challenges to face. These relationships are generally serious (Marital or Parent to Child)  and involve "persistent and painful patterns of feelings, behaviors and perceptions." This disorder has not been openly discussed within families because it is not something that is communicated out to the public as much as everything else. Many psychologists have been saying that this relationship disorder does exist and it destroys the individuals who are dealing with this situation. Currently, when a doctor fills out a medical form, he or she has to assign each person within a relationship with a psychological problem. Now, many experts want to change that into acknowledging that it may not be the individuals within the relationship, but the relationship itself. Symptoms of a relationship disorder include violent behaviors, ridiculing, dissatisfaction and neglect. 

It is diagnosed by a trained therapist who evaluates the situation or each person within the relationship. Treatment would include therapy. Medication would not likely be an option if the problem does not exist with the  individuals. For now, researchers and doctors do not know how common this disorder is. It is still very new, but psychiatrists insist that these dysfunctions are some of the primary reasons why mental health disorders exist.
