it helps you to establish a better way to communicate, to treat eeach other, to love each other more deeply and to be aware of the traps which can make you fall back into old patterns of behavior. Usually we learn to deal with conflicts from our parents. If did a bad job we tend to do the same. A therapy makes you become aware of all that so you will establish the will to break out of destructive habits.

Marriage counseling helps bring to the surface issues that may be underlying that could cause problems later in life. It is better to dig up issues immediately rather than letting them fester and eventually boil over. Learning these conflict resolution skills early on will help the oveall health of your marriage for years to come!

Many marriages actually fail, due to minor issues that don’t ever get addressed, aren’t worked on, and just get biggerover time. People can become bitter and lose their drive to want to focus on, or repair issues. Marital counseling can provide you with communication tools, and everyday goals to keep your relationship healthy while things are still going well. People do not realize on a conscious level that they have stopped working on their relationships, or do not work as hard as they once did. Taking a practical approach and garnering the tools while things are going well, is almost like insurance for your relationship down the road.
