You might even be creating the image of a great relationship to trick yourself from facing the relationship problems you know you have. Do you feel like your partner isn’t as invested in making this work as you? Even if your partner doesn’t want to come to counseling with you it doesn’t mean you have to go through this confusing time alone.
