And if your partner is no longer alive, Valentine’s Day may be a time of sadness, but also of many loving memories. Valentine’s Day can be a poignant reminder that your relationship has changed But when your partner is depressed, Valentine’s Day can be a...

    Article  by Caroline Carr If your partner is depressed, there might be a dramatic shift in their behaviour, especially if the depression comes on suddenly. But so often, depression can creep up – over years in many cases, and quite often, you may have absolutely no idea that your partner is depressed. If you and your partner have been together for some time, you may well overlook any changes in mood or behaviour, because you’ll have got used to each other. So you probably go along with and normalise these, or make excuses for them. You might not even notice any changes to start with, because often these can be very subtle. If you are in a relatively new relationship, you might think that any mood changes or unexpected behaviour...

  5. How to cope if you’re over 50 and your relationship with your husband is ‘boring’

    Article by Keren Smedley The divorce rate is increasing for the 50’s and 60s and it’s the women who are instigating divorce proceedings.  Many say that their husbands are boring, they never talk, they watch a lot of TV and  fall asleep with the control in their hands!
