BLENDED FAMILIES & REMARRIAGE – Divorcees are more likely to be a bit nervous about getting married again. According to the statistics, the divorce rates for second marriages are even higher than first marriages. And for the ones who already have kids, blending two families becomes difficult. Relationship therapists assist couples in making a smoother transition. They also help them overcome obstacles and barriers to remarriage.
MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS – If one partner has a mental health issue, it certainly impacts the other partner, as well as their relationship. Mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety, can take a toll on a relationship, over time. Other mental health issues, such as bipolar disorder can also interfere with a couple’s ability to maintain a healthy relationship. For example, communication is difficult for someone dealing with bipolar disorder given their frequent mood changes. Couples can benefit by attending therapy sessions together to learn how to work together to treat and deal with mental illness.
PHYSICAL HEALTH CHANGES – Physical health problem often has a big impact on marriage. As a couple experiences a gradual, age-related decline in health, it can significantly interfere with their activities together, including their sexual life. Life changing events, such as involvement in auto accident, or chronic illnesses like diabetes, can bring about a big change in their marriage. If one partner is unable to work or help in household chores, it can lead to a lot of marital problems, if it is not addressed effectively.
ADDICTIONS & GRIEF – Addiction is one of the most common reasons why couples seek help from the relationship therapist. However, addiction doesn’t necessarily have to be to drugs or alcohol.
