There can be many reasons for crisis and problems developing after the honeymoon phase are over and feelings of being in love begin to fade in the face of the demands of everyday life together. If you have children these demands a change in your relationship given that you are no longer just two. It is important to talk through daily frictions before it gets too late. Jealousy, infidelity and sexual problems can also be reasons why relationships founder. It can be beneficial to have an ‘outsider’ to look at your problems with new eyes and offer tools for moving forward either together or apart. There is no such thing as a happy divorce but there are well functioning shared parenting arrangements!
