It can be said that a marriage is like an automobile. When they are new and have low mileage, they tend to run like a dream. They take corners with ease and absorb bumps in the road feeling comfortable and strong. But over time, cars and relationships require more time, attention, and maintenance. To last as long as possible, it is important to make a commitment not to neglect any of the aspects that would otherwise keep them in good working order. Laurie Grengs may not be able to help you with your car’s mechanical issues, but she is a licensed psychologist with expertise in marriage therapy who has helped many couples regain the meaning and value in their relationships.
Find Strength in your Marriage
It is true of both cars and relationships that we tend to allow our familiarity with each other to eventually take them for granted. The dynamic forces of newness are often replaced by static patterns that threaten long-term viability and vitality. And when static patterns begin to take hold, it is only a matter of time before they let us know that our cars and our relationships are not running as smoothly, efficiently, or satisfyingly as they once did. In each case, we have choices to make. Do we ignore the warning signs of necessary maintenance or do we respond proactively and limit the negative impact of the forces at work?
