Signs That You Might Need A Marriage Counselor

Husband comforting wifeAs the world and life, in general, becomes highly stressful, more and more relationships are being put to the test. Divorce has become a common solution to distressed married couples. But, for those who still want to save a marriage that is on the brink of failure, opting for a marriage counselor is the last resort. What most people don’t know is those marriage counselors are more than just relationship gurus but also a friend you can rely on when everything gets too much to handle. Here are some signs to look out for if you still want to save your marriage.

Communication has become negative.

Once communication has deteriorated, often it is difficult to get it going back in the right direction. Negative communication can include anything that leaves one partner feeling insecure, disregarded, depressed, or wanting to withdraw from the conversation. This can also include the tone of the conversation. Always remember that it’s seldom what you say, but how you say it.

Extra-marital affairs.

It is almost impossible to recover from a marital affair. It takes a high level of commitment and the willingness to forgive to make things work again for a couple. If only there was a magic formula available to recover from an affair. But, if the couple is willing, and remains dedicated to the therapy process of couples counseling and continues being honest with each other, it may not be too late for the marriage. If not saved, at the very least it could be a closure that they would need for them to move on.

Distance – “So near yet so far!”

When couples start to become more like roommates than a married couple, this may be a sign that they need couples counseling. Lack of communication, conversation and intimacy can be a serious sign of a failing marriage. An expert might be able to help figure out what has been missing and how to revive the failing relationship.
