As tempting as it is to talk to friends and family about problems in your marriage or relationship, it’s not a good idea. Family and friends, no matter how caring, can’t be objective. Here are the top 3 reasons why not to turn to family and friends about your relationship problems:
1. They are biased – they will naturally take your side.
2. You and they will feel uncomfortable in front of your spouse or partner if you decide to stay together because they will know too much.
3. You will betray the trust between you and your mate by disclosing personal information about your relationship to other people.
If you must talk to someone other than your mate about your relationship problems, see a professional, who is an objective 3rd party. This person might be able to help you go to the person you want to talk with in the first place – your mate.
