Sometimes, as a couple, you can just get stuck. If you are having the same argument over and over, in couples therapy you may be able to break the pattern. Instead of repeating the responses that just make you feel frustrated, you can learn to get along better, to work together more effectively as parents, to trust each other more, and to achieve greater intimacy.
