Don't worry jcne I think you've just timed your thread badly, as there were two other positive threads running yesterday. I'm not sure MN relationships board can handle the positivity.

I've been with DP for over 20 years, we've been through lots of challenges over that time and I can honestly say we're more in love with each other than ever. We're both of the opinion that the bad times made us stronger.

No counselling, but dh and I have been together 27 years this year and are still going strong. We have our ups and downs but get through it.

Depends what you're going through though.

Yes! My OH and I went through a good year of being absolutely vile to each other. I mean really horrible. I kicked him out more than once, and he left. But we moved home and something changed. We talked about things and learned that a lot of what we were arguing about didn't matter. We still bicker occasionally don't get me wrong but it lasts a minute and we're over it.

Dp and I haven't been together long but we have got through a difficult year. Getting pregnant, buying a house that needed gutting and redecorating when we both worked ft, I was 6 months pregnant and we had no money and then having our beautiful son and me being diagnosed with PND and being a bit horrible.
We try to talk rather than let it fester and have a big blow out, it's working for us.
