After the Affair: Should We Break Up?

Fighting, infidelities, lack of intimacy, loneliness, lack of trust, boredom, monetary concerns and abuse are only some of the reasons that would cause an individual in a relationship to consider leaving their partner. Making the decision to leave and acting upon it is challenging, particularly because some relationships are salvable. The question is when is a relationship worth saving? And when is one better off starting over. Almost any relationship is fixable if both partners are willing to put the work in. However, sometimes, even if both partners are vested, the cost of staying in the relationship is not worth the effort. Sometimes leaving and starting over is the best option. The therapist at the Center for Growth provides self-help tips as well as counseling to help couples identify if their relationship is fixable or not.
