Marriage is a lifestyle and if you and your partner desire to uphold your marital vows until death due you part, then marriage counseling is the tool you need to ensure your relationship will make it through the hard times. Even the best marriages undergo moments of trials and tribulations which are normal and should be expected. Couples who attend marriage counseling conducted by a well-trained marriage and family therapist, are awarded the tools needed to unlock the secrets of effective communication, prevent cheating and infidelity, and keep their marital flame burning bright.
Marriage counseling is ideal for couples who are currently married, engaged, or who are in a committed relationship and would like to consider marriage in the future. Your marriage is a sacred union that requires both you and your partner to lean on more than just the love you share if you want your relationship to last a lifetime. Marriage requires that you both do the work needed to communicate successfully, make joint decisions, and ensure that your needs get met.
Even if you currently have a great relationship that is problem free, you and your partner can still reap the benefits of marriage counseling. Some couples wait until the problems have existed for several years prior to attending marriage therapy, thinking they could fix the issues themselves or that the problems would magically go away over time. This is the reason why some couples report not getting the most out of the marriage counseling process. The best time for you to attend marriage counseling is before the problems become so huge that you are contemplating a divorce or breakup.
If you have already entered a stage in your marriage where you are thinking about separation or divorce, marriage counseling can still help you navigate your relationship fate. I have helped couples utilize marriage counseling and coaching to save their relationship from divorce, while other couples sought marital closure and a plan for an amicable dissolution of the marriage. Overall, marriage counseling provides you and your partner the needed support, insight, and a safe space to feel heard so you can repair, rebuild, recover, or determine if irreconcilable differences are present. Despite the outcome, I promise that as your marriage counselor you and your partner will have a trusted and trained mediator, translator, advisor, listener, and leader to provide unwavering support through the entire process.
As a husband of fourteen years and counting, my wife and I have experienced the ups and downs of marriage and we have made it our life’s work to support other couples’ byway of delivering marriage counseling and mental health services. I believe in marriage, I believe in love, and more importantly I believe if two people are committed to each other, they both can have a successful loved filled marriage if they are willing to do the work in marriage counseling.
