One of the most extremely challenging relationships you will ever enter into during your life will be marriage.

Often couples get to a point where they can no longer work through difficulties themselves, and in order to save their marriage they should get couples therapy in NYC. Here are several signs that you may possibly need couples therapy if you believe your marriage relationship is on the rocks. The first indication of an unhappy marriage is poor communicating with your partner. While it may seem to be a small matter, interacting is monumental when it comes to forming healthy and well functioning relationships.

If you have issues with your marital relationship and you don’t communicate those problems with your spouse, then they will just fester and grow without being resolved.

postheadericon Kanye and Kim’s Wedding Plans – From luxury to Low-Key

Although he is known for fiercely guarding his privacy from the press, Kanye West is reportedly planning to have his upcoming marriage to reality TV tar Kim Kardashain, filmed and then sold to the TV network that bids the most for the rights to screen it.

The wedding plans are still in the planning stages, but personal representatives of the couple are insisting that the big day will be less extravagant than expected. However, if we know Kanye West, his tongue in cheek remark about hiring jet fighters to fly over the wedding will not be so much of a joke at all, as the multi-million selling rapper is known for his lavish tastes.

It is believed that West is actually planning to host a summer wedding that will have costs exceeding $5 million, and rumours are circulating that the celebration is planned to last for two weeks! Other luxurious details that are emerging from sources close to the couple include claims that luxury wedding venues will be involved. The more excessive rumours have stated that the wedding will actually be held in the beauty of France’s Palace of Versailles.

The ceremony is also believed to be a very generous one, as the expenses of the many guests that the couple plan to invite will also be catered for, with the exception of paying for their flights to the venue. The event will no doubt feature many of the couple’s celebrity friends. Another rumour going around the internet is that Kanye’s friend, three-star Michelin chef Massimo Bottura, is going to plan the wedding’s gourmet wedding menu. Kanye is known for his unique clothing wardrobe and colour co-ordination, so it’s perhaps no massive shock to hear reports that he is planning on having wedding decor that contrasts black and gold with diamond decorations.

While all the wedding preparations are being linked to Kanye, Kim’s role seems to have been rather neglected in these plans. She stated in a television interview that the event will largely be “whatever Kanye wants.” Unlike Kanye, this will not be Kim’s first luxury wedding. She previously married basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 as part of a televised event on her reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians to an audience of millions. The marriage lasted for a mere 72 days, with Kim filing for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The long and drawn out divorce proceedings, which featured heavily on her reality TV show, were not finalised until June 2013. Whatever the wedding plans become, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be the celebrity wedding of 2014.

Eat something and use the washroom before the ceremony. You have got a long day ahead of you. Grab a healthy snack before you put on your makeup and use the washroom right before you head out to the mandap”

Hug your BFFs

Have a moment with your closest friends. This is a very emotional moment for your girlfriends. Grab them in a group hug and let them know you love them. A moment with just you and the girls will help calm your nerves.

Focus on your husband – to – be
