Marriage Counseling Pros and Cons: The Two Sides of the Story

Marriage is not a human institution or a genius proposition by humanity to establish a society. Marriage is a holy institution, a concept that was generated from God.

However, even if marriage is God’s gift to humanity, it is not perfect. This is because marriage is still a human institution, with humans as the primary foundation, and subject to human frailties.

No wonder there are almost two million married couples who file for a divorce every year. When taken for granted, marriage can be a commodity that can be easily destroyed once consumed.

For this reason, some people have come up with an idea to solve this growing problem. These people believe that it is not right for a married couple to abandon their vows and forget the love that once had bound them together just because of some human weaknesses.

It was in the 1950s that marriage counseling was established in Australia. The primary goal of marriage counseling is to maintain an unwavering married life for couples.

However, not all people agree with the benefits that marriage counseling gives. In spite of its many advantages, some people still find some fault with this kind of psychological strategy.

Here is a list of its pros and cons.

PROS

1. It creates full realization of the problem. Some couples tend to think that they are the only ones who are experiencing the problem but after they have talked to a marriage counselor, they realize that there are many others who experience the same thing.

2. It can help you understand your spouse better. Therefore, the way you value your wife or your husband becomes wider and that vision can help you see the possibility of finding a solution.

CONS

1. Some couples tend to depend on marriage counseling. There are many instances where people do not exert any effort to resolve their problems on their own because they know that there is a marriage counselor that they can turn to.

2. It is simply considered by some couple as a last-ditch measure before a divorce. It does not have much value. In fact, in almost 70% of married couples, the wife is usually the one that has decided to end the marriage and they are planning to proceed with a divorce even before seeking the help of a counselor.

The bottom line is that with or without marriage counseling, married couples should learn to solve their problems. Marriage counseling can be a great help, but should never be relied upon exclusively to save a shaky marriage.

Sharing is Loving, Loving is sharing - Your Hopes, Fears and Dreams

Talking is one way to share thoughts and feelings between partners.  Research has shown that women actually talk more than men,  in fact about three times more in terms of the number of words.

This fact does not excuse men to from not talk.  It is the men who “clam up” and refuse to talk.  There are also cases where men who do more talking   than women, just as there are cases where it is the women who talk a lot  as well as those women who do not wish to talk a lot.  There is actually no clear cut or fool proof way to judge who should do more of the talking or who should do less.  It is primarily not about gender but about the individual themselves.

Communication is a vital part of any relationship.  Openness and honesty is a key ingredient to maintaining a kind of memorable relationship that is mutually loving and emotionally comfortable.

The following are tips and possible activities one can do to get yourself or your partner to talk his/her heart out, and share voluntarily any fear…

Three Areas Pointing to the End of a Relationship

Every couple longs for eternity. Unfortunately, forever challenges all couples regardless of how they started, what they have survived and the best of intentions. Being able to spot when things are coming off the rails in a relationship will allow everyone to assess what needs to be done to salvage it and if they wish to invest the time.

Area One: Communication

Communication is held up as the best barometer for telling the status of a relationship. Part of this stems from how pervasive an aspect of the whole relationship communication turns out to be. So how can a couple tell if trouble is brewing in the arena of communication?

All Is Quiet: Long, uncomfortable silences charged with tension define the time spent together. This may occur because one of the pair feels no desire to expend the energy to engage in healthy communication.

Swimming in the Shallow End: When discussions happen, the topics remain light or non threatening. Short and unemotional answers replace detailed explanations …
