How the cracks came and went in our own marriage

The relationship with my husband although good and solid on many levels, was after 20 years starting to show the signs of cracks in our otherwise stable marriage. It is since I finished many years of personal therapy and completed my training in therapeutic counselling and psychology that I started to look back and see where and why the cracks appeared in the first place.

Love and relationships are complicated to say the least, why are we attracted to another? What is it that drives us to form bonds and unions with that person? For me, I saw my dad in my husband, and a lot of my mother it was this combination along with him mirroring my opposite wounds from childhood that was the draw. Yes he was attractive, very driven, intelligent, confident, practical and I can go on and on. But most of all I felt safe and content with him, and I still do. We have managed to stay together for 30 years, but this has not been without our issues along the way.
