In a perfect world couples experiencing distress would quickly seek counselling help. In the real world couples wait on average 6 years before first seeking help. What this can mean is that one partner is already prepared to leave or has left. In this scenario speed and precision is critical.

Scoring the Quiz
If you have answered yes to 2 questions you may be in need of relationship rescue or intensive, or marathon therapy.
Men, if your wife has stopped talking to you this is a very serious relationship problem.
