When your relationship is on the rocks, it can be difficult to gain perspective. Oftentimes, we default to chatting with our best friends. Even movies and TV series like “Sex and the City” promote a culture in which women sit around drinking cocktails and talking about men. This isn’t to say this approach is wrong. Your friends should be part of your support system. Sometimes, however, your BFF isn’t the best person to provide a clear view of your relationship.

If we don’t have a solid, deeply rooted foundation we can get knocked so far off course it’s not even funny.

OH, then come the gifts, the gifts can be VERY expensive: perfume, lingerie, sex toys (don’t act like you haven’t bought one), shoes, trips, jewelry (gulp), cars (yes, some people buy people cars for gifts), horses, houses, and even stars (they are apparently selling real estate in outer space now).
A mental illness diagnosis can be hard to handle when you're in a relationship. Internal and external stressors put strain on the love you feel for each other; when it's too much to handle alone, consider couples therapy to help you both heal.
