Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
|Suzanne M Gard|
- A couple refers to any two people in what is usually called a 'relationship'.
Not all couples are in a sexual relationship although this is frequently the case.
A couple can consist of two siblings, a parent and child, two lovers, two committed partners, two work
partners or colleagues, a husband and wife, two spouses, and gay, lesbian or bisexual couples.
These people can be at any stage in a relationship; from beginning to relate in deeper ways, through the process of
wanting to better understand and improve the relationship, to undertaking how to end it well.
