A couple I know was experiencing marital problems that threatened their relationship.
She had been through a double mastectomy and he felt the pressure of keeping the family together.
When he returned home from work, that’s when the heated arguments would begin.
So, they went to a counselor but it only took 3 appointments to get their relationship back on track again.
- The advice: give each other one hour alone when you see each other at the end of the day – to unwind, make a transition from the day’s problems until you are ready to engage each other.
Good relationships are difficult where stress and anxiety are present.
