What happened? Somewhere along the way, things cooled off to the point of mutual existence in the same home. Some couples are not happy about this arrangement, yet go along with it, rationalizing that they are busy with kids, jobs and life in general. Many do not admit that their once steamy, happy and loving relationship resembles more like a roommate arrangement. It’s too painful to admit. But, if you want to make a change and want to make improvements, it might be time to find the courage to take action. Let’s talk about the various states of marriage (intimacy, conflict, withdrawal) and what we can do to insert a little more intimacy and move away from this roommate set up. (And remember, divorce is not what we are looking for as a solution!). Living like roommates is not really what you want, is it? This show is for those who struggle with a roommate situation or for general ideas as far as recognizing and avoiding slipping into a roommate arrangement. Do you have a success story? Maybe you were once living as roommates and turned it around. Please call and share your story: 760-512-7243 Please sign up for my monthly newsletter: www.marriagecoachlynn.com.
