Signs That you Need Couple's Therapy to Save your Marriage

Being married does not mean that you are past the romance, but an opportunity to build a new life and start a life-long commitment. Marriage also means that there are responsibilities involved - your responsibility as a spouse and as a parent. No matter how long you are married, you need to be happy.

Constant Arguments

Arguments are part of marriage and that is normal. However, if you keep on having constant arguments over petty things and you just can't find something right to talk you about.
