Marriage & Family Counselling

“When we first got married, we felt confident about our relationship, we were happy and in love.  Over time, life happened and our marriage slowly deteriorated with it.  We just don’t get along anymore.  We don’t experience the same “loving feeling” for each other, and we wonder if this marriage is for us.  We want it to work but it hasn’t after trying different things and talking to various people.  We wonder if there is hope for us because we feel stuck in a rut, having the same issues crop up over and over again.  Little things become big things, and we never resolve them.  We continue to sweep them under the rug and co-exist until the next episode brings them all up again.  We are starting to resent each other, we don’t understand each other, we don’t like each other at times, and it feels like we’re drifting apart.”

marriage counsellingAs a marriage counsellor, I have seen and heard many stories like the one above.  It is a painful reality that many of us live through for years.  We try your best to understand it and deal with it.  We try to convince ourself that all marriages have problems.  But the reality is, marriage has become intolerable.  And the thought of having a life long future with our partner makes us feel sad, skeptical, and scared.
