“What steps do you take when your relationship is at breaking point?”
That is the exact question I asked myself a year ago and to this day it still scares me how close we got to giving up…
Our situation was grim:
- We were constantly fighting,
- We were both trying hard to make it work but felt like it wasn’t reciprocated,
- We felt unappreciated daily and blamed each other for it, but we weren’t willing to accept any of the blame ourselves because we both felt like we were ‘doing our best’.
It was tough and we were almost ready to give up.
But I knew we really loved each other, so I kept asking myself “our intentions are good, so why do we keep fighting?!”
The reality is, almost every relationship will reach this point within the first year or two of falling in love, and most of us unfortunately struggle to find a solution that works.
When reading a summary of divorce statistics from over 115 studies for 2018, it was found that “almost 50 percent of all marriages in the United States will end in divorce or separation.” And the rate gets higher the more times you get married.
Now I’m not married, but this statistic worried me. It didn’t shock me to be honest (coming from a separated family myself), but it worried me.
Did my relationship only have a 50/50 chance of surviving?
I wasn’t willing to accept that fate.
I wanted to make it work – we both did.
And so we did.
The reason I’m telling you this is because the solution that I found for us turned out to be a lot simpler than I could have imagined and I want to help as many people as possible get the same result for their relationship.
