“Generally, marriage and relationship researchers suggest that the goal of couple therapy should be to change the patterns of interaction, emotional connection, and communication between the partners.” I always believed in this statement of John Gottman, PhD. But then, life can be fickle.
Let me tell you about my family – my husband and my five children, a bit of my life.
I got married when I was young and still in college. My husband is an Islam believer, and for us to be together in marriage, I had to convert to Islam. I didn’t mind doing that for I loved him dearly. He was my knight in shining armor, my king, and I was his queen. I was 19, naive, gullible and too much in love to understand the married life.
