Depending on noun here the correct option is

There seem to be two main causes of long-distance relationships.

If the sentence had singular noun, "seem" would be used.

There seems to be one cause of long-distance relationships.

  • So you mean if the sentence was "There seems to be two main causes of long-distance relationship." This would be the right option, right? – Hasan Petek Mar 6 at 18:50
  • No, if the sentence is "There seems to be two main causes of long-distance relationship." then it is incorrect, it should be "There seem to be two main causes of long-distance relationship." – eefar Mar 6 at 18:57
  • (Correct answer, but not expressed very well in my opinion...) – Richard Z Apr 5 at 19:04
