7 Signs that You Need Marriage Counseling
1 A traumatic life event
Traumatic life events such as the loss of a child or a serious illness have the potential to tear a marriage apart. Marriage counseling can assist couples in managing the stress and navigation of difficult and unfamiliar emotions.
2 There’s still love
If you still love your spouse and find your marriage in a tough spot, take a proactive approach with a marriage counselor to help resolve small problems before they become bigger ones.
3 You don’t talk
Communication is the very foundation of emotional intimacy and yet somewhere along the way you stopped talking. A marriage therapist can offer communication strategies to not only help to get you talking, but to keep you sharing.
4 An emotional affair
Emotional infidelity is damaging to a marriage – seek help before it’s too late.
Money is the source of marital conflict for many couples. If you and spouse are fighting over money regularly, it’s time to see a therapist who can help you both get to the root of your financial problems and steer you toward resolution.
You can talk without yelling and you don’t fight fair. It’s time to call on a licensed professional to get to the underlying source of your marital hostility if you are to ever move forward.
7 Dramatic Changes
If your sex life suddenly plummeted or has unexpectedly soared to great heights, you may have reason to be concerned according to Valerie Jencks, Founder and Executive Director of Prairie Family Therapy in Chicago, who suggests less sex could indicate intimate relations with someone else, while an increase in sexual appetite might suggest arousal from an outside source.
