I’m not sure how we compare to other couples. How do we know if we ever need professional help?
Have you ever wondered whether you and your spouse should seek professional marriage counseling? Do you suspect that the two of you could really use the help of an objective third party?
If the two of you continually seem to butt heads over the same issues, over and over again, that’s a pretty clear indicator that it’s time to seek help.
If you’re feeling stuck, frustrated, lonely, perpetually angry, or are ready to give up, those are major warning signs as well.
In today’s video, we talk about how to tell when you should get professional help, and how counseling and marriage mentoring can help your marriage to become healthier and happier than ever.
In addition to marriage counseling, it may help you and your spouse to find a marriage mentor–in many cases, that will be someone who is older, has been married longer, and has helpful insights into the adjustments the two of you can make in order to improve your relationship.
And surprisingly, it’s often the little things that make or break a marriage. You two may just need help learning to pinpoint those little changes you can make to strengthen your connection.
Sometimes you’re not on the same page as your spouse–maybe you’re the one feeling stuck. Or perhaps your spouse is totally resistant to seeing a counselor. Whatever the case, it’s absolutely OK for you to see a counselor alone.
In fact, taking that step on your own may be the very thing that saves your marriage.
Don’t wait until your marriage is crumbling to begin working with a third party who can bring you into a healthier season.
