Would Counseling Help?
The following questions will help you as a couple to decide if you need to go to counseling:
- Do you no longer enjoy the mutual activities you used to?
- Do you use extreme language when you fight (for example, “always” and “never”)?
- Have you been spending less time together by choice?
- Have you lost interest in sexual relations for the past two months?
- Do you have sex with your partner – without feeling any sexual interest?
- Do you argue about things that were not issues in the past?
- Has the partnership had a major role change that is upsetting to the other partner or yourself (for example, a new baby, an elderly relative living with you, your step-children are moving in with you, a home foreclosure, or the breadwinner lost his/her employment)?
- Has one of you kept a secret, had an affair, or been emotionally unavailable?
If you answered, “yes” to most of these questions, you and your partner could benefit from counseling to improve your relationship.
