At first, when our daughter was born we didn’t fight at all. There was no reason to fight, as she was usually a calm and happy baby. Everything changed when she was about four months old and started waking more and more during the night. The inexperienced mom lost faith in her parenting style and dad, as she felt, wasn’t much help. Accusations were thrown; articles about sleep training techniques were studied, learned by heart and discussed. There was no peace in the house and the situation stayed more or less the same until our baby girl has started to sleep through the night. More or less.

During the course of my work, I receive copious mails from men and women, requesting my advice regarding their marriages. Some complain about an unfaithful husband or wife, others say their partners don’t care for sex anymore. Naturally, all of them feel bad and want to solve their issues. Surprisingly enough, no matter how bad the situation is, none of them mentions the possibility of a divorce.
Many would, at point or another, have considered the possibility that their spouse no longer loves them. He or she is no longer as loving, caring and attentive as they used to be, never initiates sex and though he/she claims that everything is fine, the other side often feel ignored and can only think of one reason for the change: My husband/wife doesn’t love me anymore. And then comes this unbelievable “I love you, but I’m not in love with you anymore”, and you feel like your life is over.
