Help! I’m Trapped at Home with the Person I Love! By Dr. Ron Welch

So, you always wanted to spend more time with your spouse, right? Haven’t we all wanted more “quality time” for our marriages during our busy lives? Well, be careful what you ask for! The “stay at home” reality that we are all adjusting to during the virus crisis has created a new reality that has led to us having a tremendous amount of time together as families. The couples I work with as a marriage counselor (currently by telemental health) have found that spending 24 / 7 with their marital partner is a bit more than they bargained for. Conflicts are harder to walk away from, having children around constantly can be very challenging, and living, working, eating, and playing in the same space is not an easy task.
