Why Some Couples Thrive While Others Struggle

Marriage. It can be a source of immense joy, companionship, and support. Yet, statistics paint a concerning picture: a staggering 80% of current marriages are reported as less satisfying than ever. But why such a stark contrast? Here at Cerys, we explore the reasons behind this “marriage paradox” and offer tips to help your relationship thrive.

The Rise of Expectations:

Modern relationships carry a heavy weight of expectation. We envision our partner as a soulmate fulfilling an ever-expanding list of roles: best friend, passionate lover, supportive confidante, financial co-pilot, and even entertainment companion. This desire for a single person to fulfill all our needs can lead to inevitable disappointment.

The Power of Partnership:

The good news? The 20% who report greater marital satisfaction than ever before hold the key. They recognize the limitations of relying solely on a partner to fulfill all needs. They embrace personal growth and utilize available tools and resources – like Cerys! – to build stronger, more fulfilling relationships. They understand that lasting happiness comes from a combination of individual effort and collaborative work within the partnership.
