Ambivalent About Your Relationship?
Relationship ambivalence, not being invested in the relationship or even actively taking steps to leave one, is unfortunately a common experience for many couples. However, maintaining the status quo in your unhappy relationship is probably one of worst decisions you could make for your long-term happiness. The research is very clear: having a positive, intimate relationship is the secret to living a happy life; not fame, not money, and not things. Let Arcus Behavioral Health & Wellness help you and your partner move out of ambivalence and emotional purgatory and either fully invest or divest from one of the most important and consequential relationships you will have in your life.
