Relationship expert weighs in on couples growing apart

Briefly News spoke to Penny Holburn, the founder of The Life Coaching Business, who revealed that it's common for couples to grow apart. Penny also noted that many couples do not want to work on their relationships, hence they grow apart. She said:

"Relationships require work. Most people get that they need to skill up and study for their jobs. Few people realise you need to do the same for relationships as well. You need to invest time and effort into them.
"Then the other aspect is that people do change over the years. Life experiences change us, some people engage in a lot of personal development and so come to think this is not a relationship they want any more."
