Third- Party Action: The Benefits of Couples Counseling Before Saying “I Do”
8. Appreciating Your Partner
If you’ve been in a long term relationship, it’s easy to fall into a routine that could leave you and/or your partner feeling you’re being taken for granted or under appreciated. It may not be intentional, but the daily demands of life can make it so you don’t have time to show your love and appreciation like you used to. Couples counseling can make your bond stronger by showing your partner that you care enough about the relationship to give it a boost and to show him that you truly do value him and all that he does for you, and vice versa. Most people just want to feel needed and validated, so if your relationship is getting a bit stale or you feel that your partner doesn’t value you the same way that he or she used to, bringing it up in counseling may be all the fire you need to rekindle the flame.
