Holding Onto Grudges in a Relationship
If you or your partner hold grudges in the marriage or relationship, it is actually a sign of deep dissatisfaction.

When Money and Finances Affects a Relationship
Sometimes, a marriage or relationship can be brought to its knees purely because of finances and money issues. Other times, it is one of the many problems that add to your relationship woes. If one of the partners has too much control over budgeting and spending or if one is too financially irresponsible, the other is going to feel significantly insecure in the monetary sense, automatically leading to a feeling of disgruntlement in the marriage. If one of the partners is maintaining a separate bank account or is carrying out purchases secretly or is even using money to deliberately hurt the other partner or their relationship, you are in immediate need of a good marriage counseling NJ service. Garret’s sessions will help you both decipher the very sensitive topic that is finance and money matters.
Call Garrett Coan’s Marriage Counseling NJ practice to understand how money and finance disagreements can be tactfully handled, to bring peace to your marriage or relationship.
Your Children Are Caught in The Battleground of Your Relationship
Do you find yourself fighting with your spouse over issues surrounding your children? It is not uncommon for an unhappy relationship to lead to a situation whereby children the focal point of conflict. Differing approaches on key child rearing practices such as modes of discipline become another source of tension and dispute. Sometimes each spouse will subconsciously recruit one or more of their children as allies. Competing alliances within a family are detrimental to the emotional well being of children. Moreover, in families where covert collusion occurs, children learn that they can split the parents and manipulate them into getting what they want. This only exacerbates marital strife. Only a marriage counseling NJ expert like Garret Coan can help you identify this pernicious pattern and eliminate it.
Call Garrett Coan’s Marriage Counseling NJ practice to understand why there is favoritism towards one child and understand why it is extremely toxic to both your relationship and your children
Inability to Understand Partner’s Personality, Habits and Style
No two people are the same. The way you are brought up, the habits you pick up, the way your families expressed emotions all affect your personality, habits and style. Sometimes, couples realize that their partner’s personality, habits or style is simply incompatible with theirs, leading to discontentment and even resentment over time. Only a seasoned marriage counselling NJ expert like Garrett can help you realize, understand and appreciate the intent of actions of a partner, and not focus on “how” those actions were executed. Garrett will also help both partners find critical middle ground for the future, to ensure compatibility in style and personality.
Call Garrett Coan’s Marriage Counseling NJ practice if you feel helpless about your dislike for your partner’s personality and style of communication, even if you love them otherwise!
Pretending Your Relationship is OK, by Sweeping Issues under the Rug
Sometimes, one partner is too petrified at the thought of confrontation about certain issues in a marriage or relationship, fearing the relationship will fall apart if they do summon the courage to confront their partner. While sweeping such thoughts under the rug can bring about temporary relief, it can also bring about intense feelings of dissatisfaction at a later time, when you are in a position to properly rationalize your thoughts. Only a seasoned marriage counseling NJ expert like Garrett Coan can help you realize the reality of the strength of your relationship, laying it out in the open, with full transparency. Acknowledgement of an issue is key to resolving an unhappy marriage or relationship. Though this crucial exercise will translate into tumultuous discussions, it is vital to repairing a couples bond in the long run.
Call Garrett Coan’s Marriage Counseling NJ practice understand why it is very unhealthy to put off confrontation that will eat away at your marriage, slowly but surely ruining it in the not too distant future.
Empathize and compromise
Acknowledge that difference does not mean better or worse. Recognize the uniqueness in your spouse and you will learn how to empathize with them better. This is a foundation of happy marriage and what forms the cornerstone of marriage counseling.
Be giving and thoughtful
Make a point of marking special milestones such as birthdays and anniversaries with heartfelt cards, creative gifts and taking him or her out to a nice restaurant. Do simple chores to lighten your spouse’s load.
Learn to say “I am sorry”
When you realize you have made a mistake, swallow your pride and admit it. Apologies are the healing balm in a relationship. Your spouse will love and respect you for your ability to say “I am sorry about what I said or did. I was wrong.”
Nothing is more healing for a marriage than saying “I made a mistake. Please forgive me.” It may even be wise to apologize even when you feel you were in the right. When it comes to your marriage, don’t stand on ceremony and let your ego get in the way. Humility and a willingness to apologize is the way to go.
What to Do When You Discover Infidelity
When you discover that your partner has cheated, you’re initial reaction may be one of shock, anger and sadness. You will likely feel betrayed and rejected. Any sense of trust in your partner will greatly diminish. In my marriage counseling NJ practice, I seek to uncover the underlying causes of infidelity in your relationship. Usually both the cheater and the victim are very unhappy in the marriage or may have an undiagnosed psychiatric disorder/ addiction. Oftentimes the boundaries, roles, and communication patterns within the relationship are compromised. When the marital bond is under significant duress, each spouse is vulnerable to pursuing emotional support elsewhere. In my marriage counseling NJ practice, I help prevent infidelity by improving communication, empathy and understanding. By enhancing the couple’s ability to express their feelings and needs, freely and non-defensively, I help make infidelity a less attractive option.
