We haven't been through any major rough patches per se. We went through an adjustment period after DH was laid off and had to start a new job. I may have been a less than pleasant person to be around during this time, but we stuck it out and I'm getting better.
We're working through a rough patch right now. Our biggest thing is that we're both stubborn and over the last few months its caused us to argue about everything. Right now, we are learning to compromise again and let each other 'win' instead of arguing over it.
Ohh yes, we have been through a couple but there has only been one major one where we almost divorced...this was back in like Feb 2008...I even left for a while...but we decided that we needed to try everything not only for our kids but for us...and we went to counseling and it helped A LOT...obviously LOL...Our main issue was communication and the fact that I was just so depressed over being stuck in the house 24/7 with the kids and I got bitter and resentful of him being able to go out and do things and I never got to go out (we never had anyone to watch the kids so we could even go out together most of the time) we had one car...he was working in school and in a band so he was always gone morning and night...it was just bad real bad...and we just never really talked about it...it was always me clamming up and keeping it in til I just exploded (not a good way to communicate let me tell you!) but we have both learned that we need to talk to each other about what is bothering us...we now both have our own cars (boy that was a great day when we bought a second vehicle). Of course we still have our moments and arguments, but they never last long and it has been years since we actually went to bed mad at each other. We still have things we need to work out together and separately but marriage is a learning process no matter how long you have been married! You always are learning something new, whether it be about yourself, your spouse or just marriage in general.
