These are trying times for couples. But all of us can learn from other couples' journeys through romance and misery, to recovery and healing. Here's our story:

When we first met, we felt at ease, and excited. And within 10 months we were married. Phil loved to cook, and Helen loved to entertain. We were happy and intended to enjoy our lives together for many years.

But life strikes and challenges begin.

Shortly after our fifth anniversary, Helen was in a major car accident while pregnant with our second child and was unable to work for over a year, she was laid up in a hospital bed in the living room with no way to care for our 3-year-old daughter, Heather, or help pay the bills.

Financial stress was tough. Living with a spouse in pain and fear while pregnant was unbearable to explain.

All the stress and pressure took a toll on us financially and personally. An involuntary silence fell between us. We couldn’t function. We were emotionally and physically numb.

This feeling of numbness was like living under anesthesia all the time. We felt overwhelmed with bills, taking care of the kids, with no one to turn to.

We had to learn how to rebuild our relationship and here is what we learned:

1. Mental health issues need professional help.

2. Avoidance and silence are barriers to intimacy and trust. Healthy marriages address concerns of intimacy openly with open, honest, and affirming daily communication.

3. Solvable problems require communication and commitment to the solutions, while unsolvable problems require acceptance of things beyond our control.

After realizing all that, we decided to go to various trainings. With supportive programs, we also developed Tikkun Habriet ⎯ repairing of the covenant.

In spite of all the hardship we went through, we were able to resume our happily married life.
