There are many reasons why a marriage can be close to breaking point. Lack of trust due to infidelity, addiction, pressures of work, jealousy, ill health, financial issues are just some of the possible causes. It may be that you feel you have been drifting apart over a period of time, doing your own things and spending less quality time together. Maybe your partner is more absorbed in his or her own interests and does not show much interest in spending time with you.
What ever the cause for the rift, it is important to think about where you want the relationship to go. If you want to try and improve the relationship, then communication is a good place to start. Try and talk calmly and openly with your partner.
Problems in a relationship can become irresolute when a couple finds it difficult to discuss things openly and move past them. If either of you have difficulties communicating as a couple, then seeing a counsellor could be very beneficial in helping you to discuss and explore how to progress forward. A counsellor is a neutral mediator who will help guide you through talking about the issues you are going through. The sessions are usually as a couple but the counsellor may suggest some one on one time too depending on the nature of the problems. It gives each person the opportunity to air thoughts and emotions they may have been holding on to for quite some time.
Whichever option you choose, communicating respectfully and openly is a vital process of trying to save a marriage
