What Can you do When the Passion Leaves the Relationship?
“When we were first married I couldn’t wait to get home to be with my wife. Now I spend as long as I can at work and take the long way home.”
This is a comment that I hear from men and women as they seek to explain to me why they have come into couple counseling.
For some it means that the sexual attraction/energy is no longer there. For others it is a description of the general emptiness each feels in the relationship – they have drifted apart and even though they are still living in the same house they seem to spend more time trying to avoid each other than they do connecting.
If this is your situation you are probably asking “What can I/we do?”
Remember feelings follow behavior. If you want to feel something then you have to do something first that might help to create the feeling. Ask yourself”
