Re-examing your relationship post covid-19 circuit breaker



Re-examing your relationship post covid-19 circuit breaker

During the circuit breaker, were you forced to sit and look at the quality of your relationship? During the circuit breaker, was it painfully obvious the lack of sex and intimacy between you and your partner? During the circuit breaker, did you have to deal with the awkwardness of facing the difficulties in your marriage that you are able to ignore with all the other life distractions of work, travel and friends? Has the circuit breaker revealed many weaknesses and fragilities in your sex life and relationship?

The global pandemic has forced people to stay inside and remove normal coping mechanisms. Couples in long-term relationship used to be able to avoid dealing with a lot of difficulties and unpleasant issues in their relationship that they weren’t able to resolve by being distracted by many of life’s busy activities. For many people travel, going out, working at the office, working long hours allowed them to avoid dealing with the realities and difficulties they were facing in their relationship.

The circuit breaker, when it locked people down and forced them to deal daily with their relationship. Daily interactions forced people to spend time together and deal with the complex issues that they had in their marriage that they were able to ignore prior to the circuit breaker. For many people the stark reality of facing into the relationship and the lack of connection, the lack of intimacy and the lack of compatibility has been very confronting for them, difficult and scary. Are you one the of the many people reflecting on your marriage and even perhaps how unhappy you are in it?

We are in an exceedingly difficult and trying time with lots of anxiety and unprecedented change. Many couples are now struggling to deal with their relationship. It’s a difficult time to be having a relationship issue. However, therapy can help couples develop better communication skills, help them develop problem-solving skills and help them find their way back to connecting with one another to improve the quality of their life.

Never has it been more important to have a high-functioning, high-quality relationship. Couples, more than ever, need to be able to work together as we are forced to spend more time with our partners and with our families.
