There are many marriages where a couple may have tried everything they can think of in order to make things work, while others feel that there is nothing that they can possibly do to improve their relationship. Regardless of what those involved in a “bad” marriage believe, there is no possible way that the marriage will survive if neither party involved are willing to put the effort to make it work.
Many people get married without talking about the important subjects involved in marriage. Despite efforts to encourage engaged couples into pre-marital counseling, many believe they have a healthy enough relationship already only to find themselves comes to couples counseling only during crisis. Many do not realize that people continue to change, while situations or circumstances change too and this can put immense stress on a relationship. Life, surprisingly to many, can also be quite unpredictable and uncertain. As life changes, individuals change as well, which can either mean that a couples continue to grow together or continue to grow apart.
Many, married couples may eventually find that they may have reached a point in their marriage where they feel it is time to separate, or get some help. Couples counseling or marriage therapy could be more than a valid path to help couples in their relationship. Couples therapist help couples determine the issues that might be causing some difficulties in the relationship, and then work with them to improve their relationship. The marriage therapist guides the couple about their marriage, teach them the necessary skills and help them find the best solution and right path for them. Couples counseling is by no means a “quick fix;” it will take some dedication and commitment by both spouses in order for it to work.
It is very possible that a troubled marriage can be saved through couples counseling. Most couples who are willing to work on their relationship, make the effort and are committed to the process see positive results. There are situations where it might be best that a couple separate, but there are also many more marriages that can be saved. A couple will never truly know until they give it an honest effort.
