Love is a fairytale which is made more legitimate by marriage. A promise that love will last forever, who wouldn’t get enticed with that? The early days of married life might be your happiest moment as a couple. Spending time together, and talking about every bit of each others’ day made most of the “newlywed” moments.
Until the unthinkable happened…
You started to drift apart. What used to be a bright wonderful day together, now became a gloomy day alone. The warm hugs now became cold stares in each others’ eyes. The sweet kisses now became painful words that caused fights.
Suddenly, your marriage has been shaken and everything starts to fall apart. But it’s not only you who’s affected by the situation, there are people around you, especially your kids.
Now, is this marriage still worth fighting for? Probably yes!
To answer your question better, why don’t you try marriage counseling?
What is marriage counseling?
Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy, is a type of psychotherapy. Marriage counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through marriage counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship or going your separate ways.
Marriage counseling is often provided by licensed therapists known as marriage and family therapists. These therapists have graduate or postgraduate degrees — and many choose to become credentialed by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT).
Marriage counseling is often short term. Marriage counseling typically includes both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a therapist alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation.
