It depends first on the goal of the couples in therapy. Most of the time, a couple is trying to improve or enhance married life though therapy. But there may be other goals. Spouses that plan to get divorced, but still reside in the same home with their children, for example, may want advice for how to proceed with divorce. Other couples have experienced issues like infidelity. In this case, one person may feel confused and not sure what to do. Couples therapy can help solve problems in the opposite direction, too, such as whether to file for divorce, or how to begin a separation. The short answer is yes, couples therapy does work, however, it is not a magic pill, and it doesn’t work the same for every couple.

Yes, it does. The fact that both parties are willing to ask for help is a good sign. It is better to interact with a third party who will keep the peace if necessary. They will ask penetrating questions and prod a reluctant partner to answer uncomfortable questions. They will be able to see the situation more objectively than the two people involved in it.
