Steve Ward Of VH1's 'Tough Love' Reveals Top Relationship Problem

Posted: Updated:

It's commonly believed that the number-one problem plaguing relationships today is money. But according to Steve Ward, the host and executive producer of VH1's "Tough Love," it's another issue that's dooming modern couples: other people.

Ward stopped by HuffPost Live on Monday and told host Caitlyn Becker that people today share everything on social media, which leads to a lack of intimacy in their relationships.

"People fail to realize that the actual definition of intimacy is sharing secret knowledge with another person. So if all of a sudden, the things that you guys are talking about or arguing about or falling in love over or any of these things are now public information that everybody out there can possibly read and understand, it really does degrade the level of intimacy in your relationship," he said. "My number one suggestion is keep others out of your relationship. Your relationship is for you and that person and stop getting everybody else's opinion of your relationship, unless you're unhappy."
