Case Examples of Gay Couple Counselling

Case Example: “We argue constantly.”

When asked to describe the arguments, a couple can get a better sense of the purpose of their aguments.  Perhaps it’s a way to keep the relationship passionate (particularly if sex isn’t happening).  Perhaps it’s a way to keep the relationship from changing, such as an intimacy-regulator.

Hypothesising about the purpose of the arguments – treating the arguments as a symptom of something yet unknown – can be helpful.

Once understood, the couple can find new ways to rebuild their intimacy and trust (usually finding that the arguments diminish or take on a different purpose or quality as time passes).

  1. I have a couple of good strghait friends. But I have lost friendships with strghait guys because of my sexual orientation. That is just the way it goes sometimes. But i definitely feel you on hanging around the weirdos and not attaching myself long term to any one person. You need to make friends with people who can support you. And people you can support back. My problem tends to be I end up doing all of the supporting and no one holds up there end. I burn out.
