Third- Party Action: The Benefits of Couples Counseling Before Saying “I Do”
9. Fall in Love Again
Sometimes couples have been together so long that they forget what it was like in the very beginning. You know, the flowers, the romance, the butterflies in your stomach that drove you crazy with anticipation when you were planning to see each other. But when the honeymoon stage wears off and reality sets in, you may need help remembering why you fell in love in the first place. That’s not to suggest that you have fallen out of love, you may just need a relationship “pick-me-up” so that you can back to loving and feeling loved all over again. Sometimes, celebrating your love by getting a “tune-up” is a great way to get back that loving feeling. Appreciate the fact that you work at your relationship and relish in the union you’ve created. If you’ve been doing a great job at managing your relationship, counseling is a good way to give yourselves a pat on the back for a job well done.
