How happy couples are depends on both partners – and on their relationship.
The couple relationship is something separate, which is more than the two partners themselves. It is a matter of the unique combination of the two.
If difficulties arise, it is important to distinguish individual issues of each partner from couple issues. It may be a big relief for both partners to recognize for which issues they are responsible themselves and for which issues they are not.
A special challenge arises when a pair relationship becomes a triangle, because one of the partners openly or secretly enters into an external relationship. This is associated with injuries to all persons involved – and a chance.
