"Our task now is not to fix the blame for the past,
but to fix the course for the future."

--John F. Kennedy

Hard to believe you're visiting Marriage Counselor in Maryland, isn’t it?
How did it come to this?
Just why is it so hard to heal those wounds when you are supposed to be on the same team?
When you make a commitment like marriage or living together somewhere in the back of your head you think to yourself, “oh sure, there will be some challenging times, but we’ll get through them – we’re different.”
But as time goes by life somehow becomes more complicated than you expected.
Things like earning dual incomes, raising children, keeping a house up, and managing finances can leave you feeling more like business partners than lovers.
Then there are those nagging little fights that never seem to go away. Over time they seem to grow bigger and bigger until it gets to the point when you look at your partner and you can't stop yourself from thinking things like:

"Why are we always fighting?"


"I can never count on you"


"We never get to do what I want to do"


"If you really loved me you’d know what I like"


"We never have sex anymore".


"You're just like my mother/father"


"Why am I with you?"


How could something that seemed so wonderful end up being so painful and destructive?
