There is no doubt that the pandemic has been a struggle for Australian families. Whether that struggle be financial or emotional, these difficult times have forced many couples to question where their relationships stand.
Any person questioning their marriage will be faced with the defining question; Do you try to work through the problem? Or do you file for a divorce?
Situation A: I want to work on my relationship, but I don’t know how
Counselling can be effective at repairing even the most broken of relationships. Studies have shown that couples therapy is effective at restoring relationships in 75 percent of cases.
If engaging a counsellor or psychologist is out of your budget, consider developing more open communication with your partner.
