Third- Party Action: The Benefits of Couples Counseling Before Saying “I Do”
5. Develop Emotional Intimacy, Not Just Physical
It’s easy to fall in “lust” and think you’re in love, especially if the sex is good. But if your relationship seems to revolve solely around sex, then seeking counseling can help you determine if there is any real substance to your relationship. You and your partner should be friends as well as lovers – teammates who form a partnership that is centered around shared goals and values, not just sex. If you’re feeling disconnected emotionally, counseling may be able to get to the root of the problem and bring you two back together.
