Marriage counseling and couples therapy for Massachusetts couples still has a bad reputation. Despite the stigma that's been lifted off therapy in the past decade, signing up for marriage therapy sessions is still viewed by many as weakness, an admission that a relationship is in shambles.
We've all heard the saying, "Relationships are about give and take." And it's true when you love someone, it's natural to make small concessions so that your Massachusetts partner feels loved and appreciated.
Anyone who's loved a Massachusetts narcissist wonders, "Does he really love me?" "Does she appreciate me?" They're torn between their love and their pain, between staying and leaving, but can't seem to do either. Some swear they're loved; others are convinced they're not. It's confusing because sometimes they experience the caring person they love, whose company is a pleasure, only to be followed by behavior that makes them feel unimportant or inadequate.
Plenty of cheating Massachusetts spouses are satisfied with their relationship, and do not commit infidelity with the intent of destroying their marriages or their spouses. Still, they cheat. And these individuals more often than not do so on a business trip. Part of the reason for the venue is that they believe that what their spouses don't know will not hurt them. But a growing body of research shows that there are other signs of a cheating spouse than one with the opportunity or ability to get away with it, though that's a requirement. Many husbands and wives cheat while traveling for work because they want a break from themselves. It is not about sex, it's about escapism.
At any age, a Massachusetts divorce can set you back financially, but ending a marriage later in life poses an extra threat: derailing a previously on-track retirement. As is true with younger couples, a divorce is likely to leave you with higher living expenses, lower in-come, and less wealth. But if you're fifty something or older, you'll have a lot less time to amass more earnings to make up for what you've lost.
