Our romantic relationships are both beautiful and challenging. At certain points in our relationships, we could all use a little extra guidance to keep the love alive and communication strong. If you've ever wondered whether your relationship could benefit from couples therapy, you're in the right place.

In this article, we've prepared a comprehensive "Couples Therapy Quiz" that will help you assess the health of your relationship and determine if seeking professional guidance is the next step to ensure a stronger, more fulfilling partnership.

Friendly reminder: this quiz isn’t intended to make assumptions or judgments about another person’s background, personality, or mental health. In other words, we can’t armchair diagnose you with anything. Our goal is to give you this tool to better understand your current situation and the opportunity to seek help if you want it.
