Here are some of the most common things our San Diego marriage counselors hear from our couples:
- The “spark” has gone out
- We seem to fight and argue all the time
- My partner used to be so ____, but not anymore
- I just can’t trust him/her after what happened
- This isn’t the same person I married
- We used to be happy
Most romantic relationships begin in positivity, tenderness, and optimism. Over time, couples can experience degradation in what once was a deeply meaningful and rewarding bond. This can create feelings of hopelessness, fear, anger, and loneliness. Especially as each partner becomes less and less intimately connected to the other.
