Sexuality, Couples & Marital Therapy

For Better or For Worse…

Who enters into romantic relationships with the hope of a caldron for change or the crucible of marriage? We readily embrace sexual chemistry, companionship, euphoric fun, and creating crazy memories together with our romantic partner. If we are fortunate enough to experience these blissful nuances, we seldom escape their fading process, and more commonly experience relational struggles and unfulfilled expectations. The ‘better’ in each of us still exists; yet, we seem to call out the worst in one another, or even more perplexing, we tolerate the worst in ourselves–while still expecting the best in the ‘other’. Together we explore the common culprits of relational discord and impending failure, while providing tools to enjoy and anticipate the glorious potential intended for marital union. What eludes lovers will become tangibly attainable for those who embrace the model of marriage as crucible.

On Marriage
 Kahlil Gibran

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
