Even though it may seem obvious, no one teaches you to be in a relationship; no one teaches you to be more flexible, how to solve conflicts, how to achieve an effective communication, how to keep desire high through the years, and so on. We tend to think that things are going to be ok spontaneously if love is felt, but the truth is that a couple is going to experience very hard episodes without knowing how to solve them. There are many reasons that can lead to dissatisfaction within the relationship: communication, infidelity, failing to get to an agreement in life choices, emotional dependancy, jealousy, insecurities or not having enough satisfying time with the other are among the challenges that couples can face.
Couple issues have a range of intensity: from feeling a little dissatisfaction with some aspects of the relationship to having so many problems that you can only think of a divorce. Sometimes, it has to do with someone losing their love for the other. No matter the case, couple therapy is an excellent alternative to try and solve those issues that both of you are struggling to get through.
