Kristin Cavallari understands the hardships that come with marriage. The Laguna Beach alum is the mother of three children, and the wife to an NFL quarterback. According to UsMagazine.com, Jay Cutler has recently left his position for the Chicago Bears to pursue NFL commentating. Their family has relocated to Nashville for his new job. It has been a difficult adjustment for the celebrity parents, but the celebrity couple manages to work out their problems through the techniques they have learned in couples therapy.

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes it’s hard to communicate your problems as a couple with your partner. Here are some tips for keeping your relationship on the same page:

1. Couples therapy: Like Cavallari and Cutler, try couples therapy and figure out your problems. A therapist can hear what each of your problems are in the relationship in an unbiased way and can help you both find a solution for communicating those problems to each other.

2. Take a vacation together: Find a way to have a couples’ getaway during your busy lives. Have a weekend getaway in a new city, or take a week off from your responsibilities in a tropical oasis. Spending time together will make it easier to express how you feel without  work schedules from keeping you tied down.

3. Spend time apart: Have alone time away from each other once in awhile. Spend a few days apart to reevaluate your problems as a couple. This time apart does not suggest that you see other people, but it’s a time to reflect on how each of you can improve the relationship.
