Marriage counseling is like a lot of things in life: the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it. Effective marital counseling usually depends on the commitment of both parties to the success of the relationship. If one spouse is looking for a way out, no amount of counseling will fix that. To ensure success in counseling, be 100% honest with your therapist, honor your commitments made in counseling sessions, and be willing to change some of your behaviors for the sake of your marriage. There is no magic bullet and it will take time, but your commitment, honesty, and follow-through can ensure success.
