Well, I wouldn't be a couple therapist if I didn't believe that people can find each other, even when there are a lot of stresses and strains. So yes, you can come back from the brink. But you have to know when to ask for help and not let it go on year after year!
Do many couples discuss these problems? Or is communication sometimes part of the problem?
Okay - date night rule #1. Don't talk about kids, money or the fact that the garage door needs fixin'!
Rule #2 - do something different and FUN! Remember fun?
Rule #3 - accept the fact that your husband will want to have sex after date night! It's just a fact!
Vikki -- love these rules!
Rule #4 - what would make you want to relax with him after a night out???
Gurls! Just because you're moms and working, doesn't mean you're not women!
But France - once a year is not enough. I mean it!
Mary, we need to talk about how you can learn to argue in a constructive way, rather than a destructive way.
France, my husband and I mixed business and pleasure this past weekend in Boston. We hardly get away together alone. It did wonders for our marriage, but the same wonders as when the grandparents take the kids for a night too. That recharging is crucial to being a fully functional human being, wife and mother.
This is scaring me. Do all you women never or hardly ever go away from the kids???
Right. That's not good. You forgot who you are, other than being someone's parents.
Jamie, getting away without the kids has just as much benefits as if a family member or friend will take them for a night or two, and you can even have a staycation in your house!
