I came to appreciate who my husband is
My husband and I went to couples therapy because I was very frustrated with my husband. I was annoyed with everything he did and was questioning why we were still together. I had married him because he was really nice, easygoing and stable, which was what I needed at the time. But, as I got older, I thought I really didn’t need that anymore. There was no passion between us and we had sex less than 10 times a year. I was basically ready to get a divorce.
My biggest fear of seeking help was that it might confirm how hopeless I felt and that I’d determine for sure I should leave my marriage. I knew a divorce would be devastating to my family and I really didn’t want to put anyone through that. I wanted help, but I also didn’t want to settle for a marriage that was unsatisfying to me.
After 10 sessions with Risa, I no longer felt as frustrated. I came to appreciate who my husband is and how he is different from me. We learned to respect one another’s ideas and opinions and I was reminded of all the positive reasons I married him. I no longer think about divorce and am much happier overall. And our sex life improved dramatically! Therapy with Risa really helped save my marriage.— S.M.
