If being in a relationship was easy and stress-free, more people would be committing to a partner. But the reality is that every single relationship we have requires time, effort, and hard work. Communicating effectively and problem-solving together doesn’t always come naturally. When we get into relationships and commit ourselves to one another, those challenges are going to come up at one point or another. The best thing you can do when the water gets too rocky is reach out for an unbiased, understanding helping hand.
A great relationship is about two things: First, appreciating the similarities and second, respecting the differences.” – Unknown

When considering whether or not you and your partner should pursue therapy, there could be a lot of hesitation involved.
