Many couples coming for therapy have asked if their bickering, snapping, and impatience is ‘the norm’ among marrieds during the pandemic. Rather than give an opinion, I did some research to get a good feel for it. The gist is, not all couples are feeling stresses and dealing with it the same way. 1. Young couples are dealing better than old age couples2. same sex couples , african-american couples, other minorities are not surviving as healthily as their counterparts3. Couples who have unhealthy attachment styles are very stressed.4. Couples who were strong, committed, and grounded are thrivingAlways go for the evidence. Never the opinion. Seek the Sciences
