Need to talk?
Is something troubling you? Are you and your wife in a cold war or the World War II and there doesn't seem to be any resolution in sight?
Sometimes you may not know how to resolve a conflict or even understand what is the reason behind your fights. Some common culprits of marriage breakdown are depression, anxiety, relationship breakdown, drug and alcohol abuse, work stress, financial problems, poor body image, or communication difficulties.
It doesn't mean you are crazy or must be in deep marital woes in order to go counselling. In fact, seeking counselling and addressing the issues before they become genuine problems that could not be resolved takes strength and courage, and may even bring you closer together.
