Questions & AnswersRelationship Issues

Couple on the beach
  • My husband and I tend to have big blow outs over fairly inconsequential things. It seems like one of us always has to "win" and that "winning" is more important than what we're actually fighting about. What's going on and how can we stop it?
  • I'm in a lesbian relationship and my partner is homophobic. Is there anything I can do to help her get past the homophobia?
  • I've been married for over 20 years. My husband was the man of my dreams and we had an incredible amount of passion in the relationship for the first few years. Now, though, it seems like we're more like roommates than spouses. We never fight and yet it seems like something is missing. Any ideas about what might be wrong and how we can get back on track?
  • My partner hates my family. Just really can't tolerate being around them at all. He tries for the sake of the relationship, but it always feels strained. What should we do?
  • My boyfriend and I can't agree on whether to have children. We're planning to marry in a few months but this issue really worries me. I've talked to him about going to counseling with me but he's not interested. He says that he may change his mind but right now, he doesn't want kids and I do. I'm not sure what to do.
