Happy marriages don’t happen by accident. Couples who have a strong relationship aren’t immune from times of struggles and conflict. What makes the difference is how they lovingly persevere through those times.
Continually devoting time and effort to building your mutual care and love for one another is important. This means being deliberate about setting aside time to share your thoughts, concerns and feelings. Making sacrifices for one another and demonstrating trust amid the day to day routine of life will prove invaluable when bigger hurdles arise.

Difficulties in Marriage
Any couple, regardless of how strong their marriage is, can face difficulties at some time or another. Sharing and working to resolve differences is crucial if the relationship is to stand the test of time.
Sometimes however, these difficulties seem beyond what a couple feel capable of resolving on their own. In these situations, the support and guidance of a well trained counsellor or psychologist can be invaluable. Please contact us for a confidential referral.
