What are the signs you need marriage counseling?

How do you know for certain that you need marriage counseling?


If you answer “Yes” to the following questions below, marriage counseling would definitely benefit you.

  • If you’ve been fighting about the same issue for years and never really getting anywhere
  • If you’re thinking about getting divorced
  • If you found out that your spouse cheated on you
  • If you want to learn how to get closer like you were when you first fell in love
  • If you know that your communication could be better
  • If you want to know how to move forward now that you’re empty nesters
  • If you’re engaged and you want to make sure that your marriage succeeds
  • If you have a pressing issue that you need to handle but can’t seem to resolve it


Generally, if you are feeling disconnected from each other, that is the perfect time to go to (the right kind of!) couples counseling. The reason for that is that people often resort to BAD behavior when they are feeling unsafe and disconnected as their primary goal is survival and protecting oneself at all costs, so disconnection is the reason that many partners will resort to behaviors such as lying, cheating, emotional affairs, and general overall “exiting” the relationship.


Why not prevent those behaviors from even starting and go when you notice a disconnect?


It will be so much easier for you to prevent all of those bad behaviors if they haven’t yet started.
