Marriage Counseling

Are You in an Endless Cycle of Arguing?

Have You Grown So Distant That You feel Like Giving Up?


Chronic arguments can make you feel unimportant. When you always feel like what you say does not matter to your partner, you can end up in the dungeon of bitterness. You both move to your neutral corners and maybe even start sleeping in different beds.

Perhaps an affair, a manipulative lie, or these chronic arguments has sparked pain and frustration.

When you come home exhausted, the last thing you want to do is get in a heated argument. If your partner says the wrong thing, it's just human nature to get snappy. If your spouse is also in a bad mood, all hell can break loose.

At the same time, imagine your child giving you attitude while rolling his eyes at you. How hard is it to stay calm and effectively parent when your relational needs are being flushed down the toilet? It will feel almost impossible!
