English term or phrase: not long before they become history
Sometimes, as counsellors, we read about working with couples and even read a bit o actual session work done by others. We then try to do the same, but things in reality seem so much messier. The following shows some of the difficulties in such work. At this early session, the couple have agreed to the rules, yet it is not long before they become history.

diventare lettera morta
Explanation:
In pratica, anche se inizialmente le coppie hanno concordato sulle regole da seguire, non passa molto tempo che esse (le regole) non vengono dimenticate, cioè diventano subito lettera morta. Potresti anche dire "finiscono nel dimenticatoio".

Buon lavoro,

Floriana
