Worcester Youth and Family Services, Inc. (WYFCS) success stories!
A couple coming for pre-marital therapy, questioning their own abilities to commit to this relationship for the remainder of their lives began to come weekly to therapy. The couple struggled with a history of infidelity (within a pre-marital relationship when they first got together), leading to continuing issues of trust which also were exacerbated by experiences throughout lives of their families of origin. It was common for the couple to experience conflict more than weekly and to often notice all the negatives within the relationship, rather than the positives. There was blame and responsibility for one another’s emotions, and a lack of emotion expression all together from one of the members of the relationship.
Since counseling, the couple has gotten married, has been thinking of starting a family. They no longer blame or give responsibility to the other. They each express their emotions vividly to one another, accepting one another for their strengths and weaknesses. They truly love one another and mainly just want to spend time together and show one another support and care. This couple enjoys their quality time together and wants to ensure to never lose the love they have gained for each other, in addition to the relationship that has grown between them.
