Dr. Christiana Awosan, a marriage and family therapist here in New York, joined NY1 to share what signs may show that your relationship is damaged and how you can fix it.
The pandemic magnified problems that were in couple's relationships.
She notes that COVID fatigue is real and that it's important to be kind to one another as the pandemic comes to a close.
Signs of a damaged relationship include contempt, an increase in criticism, and a lack of willingness to have a conversation or give your partner grace.
Ways to save your relationship include honest communication, validating your partner, not starting with blame, rediscovering individual interests, and seeing a couples therapist.
Have fun with each other, emotionally, physically, and sexually to heal the rifts that may have developed.
