Pope Francis in his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia said “the life of every family is marked by all kinds of crises.” He continues to say, “Couples should be helped to realize that surmounting a crisis need not weaken their relationship…Each crisis becomes an apprenticeship in growing closer together or learning a little more about what it means to be married. There is no need for couples to resign themselves to an inevitable downward spiral or a tolerable mediocrity” (no. 232).
