Relationships can be wonderful and challenging at the same time. Many times a couple will have different expectations about what being in a relationship means. They come together with different life stories, and pretty soon they discover their mate doesn't always do things the way they would. If the disappointment and hurt have gone on for a while, communication becomes increasingly difficult. Some communicate with silence, others with anger. Counseling can help you see how and what you are communicating to your spouse, and help you learn how to communicate clearly and lovingly. When you have experienced infidelity or loss of trust, it takes time to repair and rebuild your relationship. The pain of betrayal is really deep, and it is hard work to face it. However, the investment in your relationship can make a significant difference in your life, and your family's lives. If you have children, the stakes are even higher. Whether you like it or not, children are deeply impacted by the choices you make as a couple.
The good news is that counseling works. When you begin to move towards each other, and not away from each other, then you can enjoy being a couple again.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. Mignon McLaughlin
