A lot goes in to a relationship. It's not always amazing connection, great sex, perfect communication skills...though a lot of times it starts off that way. So you know you love them but something is shifting in your dynamic, what now? Therapy. It's not just for big hurdles or someone messing up on their part. Therapy is an excellent (and healthy!) way to learn communication skills that better your relationship before anything further gets carried to a minor problem. Therapy - and couples therapy - should be utilized just like a doctor; of course you go for your check-ups, but when something just isn't right, having that space to fix an issue is an essential part of a great partnership.
Be sure to shop at Lover's Lane for all your "kiss and make-up" favorite toys, lubes, oils, and lingerie!
