Research has shown us that relationship difficulties generally do not spontaneously improve and by the time one or both partners are considering separation or divorce, they have experienced over 6 years of relationship distress. Often times, couples are confused about what is the right time to commit to couples therapy because they fear about what it might reveal about themselves, their partner or the relationship. Many couples wait until one partner has already given up before seeking help. So it is important to spend the time and energy now to improve the quality of your relationship. A couples' ability to stay emotionally engaged and responsive to one another, even in the face of difficulties, predicts overall satisfation and stability in the relationship.
