Abstract

Many couples coming for marital therapy have problems that stem from poor distribution of their time in recreational and social activities. They may be lonely and isolated as a nuclear family, may have lost their playfulness, may spend too much time together, or may be over-involved with their children. Individuals have different needs for soli­tude and togetherness. These needs may also change as a couple go through the developmental phases of their lives and their marriage. When the amount of each partner’s desired emotional space differs within a relationship, the irritations and frustrations coming from satiation and deprivation can lead to withdrawal.
