Reconnecting With Your Spouse
Marriage is hard work. Relationships of any kind are hard work. But marital relationships have the added burden of existing in a world that insists on idealizing them. We grow up with images of princesses marrying their princes with a castle as backdrop, and living happily ever after. The fairy tales don’t seem to ever incorporate the stress that comes from having to work two jobs to pay the bills, health issues that affect sexual interest, or the sheer lack of time for couples to be intimate with each other. Those realities do not seem to be present in the fairy tales.
But they are certainly present in our day-to-day lives, and they can take a toll on our relationships. If they are present in your life in one form or another, it is also possible that you and your spouse have gotten so frustrated with each other that you have begun to blame one another and drift apart. And if this has taken hold, the situation in which you find yourself may feel like one big jumble of stress and disconnection. The flame that once burned between the two of you may seem to have been doused by life. Laurie Grengs can help you and your partner identify the underlying issues that may have become barriers to intimacy and help you find ways to connect again, both emotionally and physically.
