"Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing and finding deeper connection. Is is a dance of meeting and parting and finding each other again, minute to minute, day to day."
-Dr. Sue Johnson
So often couples experience distress and heartbreak when realizing that the relationship is not as connected and fulfilling as it once was. For some couples, daily conflict becomes the norm, and life stressors get in the way of feeling heard, understood, and problem-solving meaningful issues. For others there's distress from making choices between one's own responsilbilties, family responsibilties, and giving to the relationship bond. For some, there's been a betrayal or significant rift in the relationship. The good news is that relationships are repairable when both members are willing to put in the effort.

The majority of disagreements in a marriage are perpetual, or ones that are not able to be resolved. What makes the difference is how the disagreements are discussed. Relationship satisfaction improves when couples learn the skills to help keep the bond in a thriving state even when there are disagreements and different points of view.
