Relationships often start out happy and exciting. The couple is deeply in love: they enjoy getting to know each other, spending time together, and exploring new experiences. This time period is often known as the “honeymoon phase.” Sometimes, when this phase comes to an end, a couple is met with significant obstacles.
Once you’ve gotten past the honeymoon phase, you might start to notice things you didn’t before. “My partner keeps putting the dishes in the dishwasher wrong, no matter how many times I correct them.” “Every time I make dinner, my partner doesn’t show appreciation. It’s like they expect me to just do this for them.” Why doesn’t my partner understand that I have to stay late at work so I don’t fall behind?”
When little things start to build up and get under your skin, it’s a recipe for disaster. So whether you need help communicating with your partner or you’re both trying to overcome something like infidelity, marriage counseling or couples therapy can be the answer you need.
