From seeing an online therapist to walking out the door, couples do all sorts when they have problems within their relationship.

Fights Will Happen
First and foremost, you must understand that while you are a couple and love each other, there will be times when you disagree and dislike one another. Fighting, shouting, screaming and arguing are all a part of married life. It’s natural to do all those things but it does also show your passion and how much you care about them. If you didn’t care, you wouldn’t argue. However, while it’s common to argue, it’s also very important to understand you need to work to overcome them. You cannot avoid an argument because they will happen sooner or later but you need to find a way to forgive and move on. Sometimes, seeking the help of an online therapist can make all the difference.
