Unlove – Falling in love is easy, but staying in love and to have the commitment to your partner forever is difficult. Yes, we fall out of love because as a human we are designed to function like that but when the couple understands that real love is all about falling back in love deeper than before, nothing will break their relationship apart.

Why Do We Fall OUT Of Love?  – The Good Men Project

“During the marriage ceremony, the couple confesses that they will stay with each other until forever…that’s all. However, this is not the case with all couples. According to the statistics, the marriage rate in the United States is 6.9 per 1,000 populations while the divorce rate is 3.2 per 1,000 populations. Furthermore, the study shows that the relationship satisfaction among many couples keeps on decreasing after the marriage.”

Two Magic Words that Keep Relationships Together – Psychology Today

“An apology, like a nail, is a seemingly small yet vital tool. Without it, things fall apart. In my work as a psychologist, I see marriages fail and family members stop speaking to one another because someone will not apologize, or the apology is offered in a way that only deepens the injury rather than widening the path for forgiveness and reconciliation. Even good relationships suffer quietly beneath the surface when a hurt or insult goes un-repaired. For the want of a heartfelt apology, a kingdom of trust and affection may be lost”

A Better Way To Approach A Failing Relationship. – The Good Men Project

“When it comes to failing relationships, both in my personal life and in the lives of my clients, there is a theme where one person is “evil” and the other one is the “saint” and it is mostly reversed for the other party. This happens especially when a relationship went real sour, filled with constant rife, or when it is abusive. A few things usually happen; one party thinks that they are always right and that they are the victim, or one party tries to see another’s point of view and justify their behavior even when it is inappropriate and hurtful.”

Has Your Relationship Ended Up In The Land Where Love Dies – Psychology Today

“At any moment, I’m sure of it, Martin Floreani is going to leap out of his chair, launch himself across the table that separates us, clothesline me backward out of my chair, and pin me to the floor. At least, that’s the look in his eyes, a barely contained animal ferocity. It’s not clear whether he combed his hair this morning, he certainly didn’t shave, and he has the kind of fixed stare and clenched jaw that you see on boxers when they meet in the middle of the ring before the opening bell. This, it turns out, is his default expression.”

Embracing Diversity in Relationships – Psychology Today

“In this post, we will talk about the first two phases of a relationship. Phase one, which is all about unity, similarity, and harmony; and phase two, which is all about fostering and embracing diversity. We’ll do this by commenting on some song lyrics, a poem, and a parable. Each speaks to some aspect of either the first phase, the end of the first phase, or the entrance into the second phase of a relationship. Even though the examples come from traditional love stories of romantic partnerships, the experiences they describe refer to all kinds of relationships: friendships, child and parent relationships, student and teacher relationships, business partnership, marriage, and so forth.”
