Relationships take ongoing effort and sometimes we need outside support to help navigate through the often challenging territory of intimacy. Love is a consistent effort to take someone else's wellbeing into consideration and following through with that commitment. Marriage counseling or couples therapy can provide much needed clarity and a neutral third party to facilitate helpful resolution.
