How do you know when you need to call the marriage therapist?
It may be time for help when:
- One of you has had an affair or is thinking of having an affair.
- The word “divorce” is used as an option or a threat.
- You’re having more fights and fewer discussions.
- You’ve used phrases like “I love you, but I’m not in love with you.”
- Sex isn’t fulfilling or fun anymore.
- You or your partner is controlling or demanding.
- Resentment keeps you from seeing the positives in your relationship or your partner.
- You feel like you can’t do or say anything right anymore.
- You feel like you are walking on eggshells, or you’re just roommates.
- You can’t honestly state what you want or need out of the relationship.
- You’re a rookie. You’re about to get married for the first time or you’re about to get re-married and not sure how to start in a healthy way.
If any of these sounds like your current relationship, it’s worth it to give therapy a chance! Change IS possible. I’ve seen it hundreds of times. And it’s just as possible after 30 years as it is after year one. Most couples wait way too long before they come to marriage counseling. Don’t be that couple.
When you’re stuck, you want to have someone along the way to help you make the healthy choice. I’ve been able to be that person for hundreds of couples over the years, and I’d be honored to help you as well. Give me a call or schedule an appointment so we can get started and get your relationship back on track.
