What Is Couples Grief?

Couples may experience collective grief after the death of a loved one or other traumatic life changes. In some cases, both partners may have strong feelings about the death of someone close. In other cases, an individual may experience distress from empathy with their grieving partner.

This phenomenon is a type of complicated grief that manifests in different ways. You may be experiencing couples grief if you notice any of the following:

  • Collective depression or distress following a death
  • Intimacy changes or feelings of distance from your partner
  • Irritability toward your partner
  • Feeling fatigued
  • Fears that your partner may leave
  • You think that your relationship may not recover


It may feel challenging to manage this wide range of symptoms in a relationship. Fortunately, our couples grief counseling services identify problems and work toward solutions.

We aim to help you manage grief and maintain a strong relationship with your partner.
