Relationships go through many phases during the course of life, and it's obvious that there will be rough patches. The strength of a relationship is reflected in how a couple deals with inevitable difficulties. These days, in our fast-food, drive-through society, marriage is sometimes seen as expendable. "I don't really get along with this one, so I'll find another one who'll be better." This has turned the divorce rate on its head. While separation and/or divorce are necessary in some cases (especially where abuse is present), I believe people are much too quick to run to the lawyer when things get tough.
I know from experience that many relationships can be saved, even when it seems almost impossible. If you and your spouse find yourselves in serious conflict or even contemplating divorce, you owe it to yourselves to have the courage to come to counseling and see if the hurts in your relationship can be healed. My goal in couples therapy is not only to help you solve the problems you face, but to revive the feelings of love and affection you once held for each other.
