Getting your Marriage in order for a possible Economic Downturn
Is your marriage prepared to handle an economic crisis? Has the Covid-19 virus affected your house and your ability to earn money? Has your company or place of employment started layoffs or downsizing of business plans due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak? Have the stresses of financial concerns put more pressure on an already fragile marriage? Do you want help to get your marriage strong so that you can weather whatever the economy and other crises may bring?
The number one fight that often disrupts a marriage are financial problems. Financial problems create huge amounts of stress. If a marriage has one person laid off, the loss of income can often push people and families over the edge. It can create changes in the power structure, it can reveal and magnify tensions in the relationship. It can bring about feelings of unfairness and inequality.
A happy marriage requires couples to be able to navigate life’s challenges and crises. Crises often reveal cracks in an individual’s coping skills that can therefore affect the marriage. This can bleed into further challenges around being able to handle parenting issues, extended family issues and other issues. Financial problems can also increase health issues.
Crisis also require people to be highly skilled in dealing with feelings. Too often people try to solve crises with Logic. They will say things like: Here are the reasons why you SHOULDN’T be Scared. Here are the reasons you should be anxious. Giving reasons or using logic is actually illogical. Why? Because people are emotional beings not machines. We can have feelings even when we know they don’t make sense. Crisis need our skill to deal with strong emotions.
It’s always better to prevent crises from becoming worse. Seeking out therapy before it becomes a marriage crisis is always advised. Marriage therapy requires people to do homework and have a place where they can be motivated to do the necessary work that will be required of them.
