When couples wait too long to ask for help, the relationship may be
beyond repair.

The sooner help is sought, the better chance there is of recovering,
saving and actually strengthening the relationship. This includes
issues dealing with affairs or other types of betrayal.

The longer we wait, the more entrenched we get in destructive
patterns and resentment and all hope for change is lost.

The longer we wait, the more entrenched we get in destructive
patterns and resentment and all hope for change is lost. At a certain
point we don't even want change... we just want to be done.


The seven warning signs that a relationship is in trouble are:

1. Fighting has become the rule rather than the exception to the rule.

2. You find yourself looking outside the relationship for comfort,
care, and understanding.

3. You can't remember what attracted you to your partner in the first
place.

4. There is little or no intimacy in your relationship -- sleeping in
different rooms or different beds, lack of interest, anger, and
hostility so that intimacy is out of the question.

5. Spending very little time together, friends seem to be more
important than your partner.

6. Reactions to situations are disproportionate to the content of the
disagreement (i.e., feeling your partner doesn't love you because
she/he didn't like the meal you cooked).

7. Feeling helpless and hopeless to change anything. Feeling done
with the relationship, but unclear as to where to go and what to do.
Feelings of anger, resentment, pain, and desperation are predominant.


If any or all of these describe you in your relationship, your
relationship is in trouble and it won't be long before something more
drastic happens, such as an affair, arguments get worse and inflate
with intensity, increased jealousy, silence for longer periods of
time, and sometimes even physical and/or verbal abuse.

Before your relationship reaches that critical crisis point, look at
the warning signs and do something before it's too late:

Seek psychotherapy

Read books

Talk to a spiritual/religious advisor
Without help, the relationship will never get better with time; once
a certain level of resentment, anger, and hostility hits, it will
simply get worse and worse. Avoiding a total crisis and saving the
relationship is done by knowing when you're in trouble and taking
immediate action.
