Elevate in Love – Relationship Quiz Results: 41 – 60

Couples with scores in this range reflect a majority of couples with dissatisfaction or distress in their relationship. Relationship dissatisfaction can present itself in so many ways, but there exists an uncertainty as to how you can work constructively and collaboratively with your partner to address the struggles in your relationship. Couples in this score range can benefit tremendously from couple’s counseling. Since there exists a foundation of satisfaction and hope for the future, couple’s counseling can allow you and your partner to better understand each other and communicate more effectively so that future problems and struggles can be navigated more easily. Couples in this score range can also reflect early warning signs of problematic relationship patterns and/or communication styles that, if left unresolved, can erode at the quality of your relationship and cause problems in the future.

One of the most profound experiences of being human is building a lasting relationship with another person. After the period of falling in love, which is often marked by infatuation, pleasure, and joy, we eventually reach a moment where we figuratively ‘hit the ground’ and begin to see our partner more complexly and for who they actually are—which we may not always enjoy. It is during these sobering moments that the true work of relationship and love begins where a couple must put in the necessary work of elevating in love together.
