Getting Marriage Advice and Help for Your Marital Woes
What's the state of your marriage? It's best to be honest in your assessment of your relationship. Has your
spouse been spending more of his or her time sitting or sleeping on the couch instead of with you lately? How is
your communication with your spouse? Do you often find yourself feeling as if you are talking to a post?
How does a typical day with your spouse go? Do you and your spouse spend more time yelling at each other and
arguing over the most insignificant issue? It doesn't matter how small the problem is; does a small problem usually
turn into a major confrontation between the two of you? Maybe you and your spouse have tried to work things out but
it seems like your marriage is going from bad to worse. Nothing seems to work and fix the problem.
Perhaps that's just the problem -- you and your spouse are working through your problem just by yourselves. Did
you know that you can turn to a marriage counselor for help and advice? All married couples go through a rough spot
or two during their marriage. You and your spouse aren't the only marriage couples whose marriage is
Think back to that time when you were newly married. Things were generally fine. In fact, you and your spouse
settled your disagreements either at the kitchen table or in the bedroom. As time went on, however, you both began
to find it more and more difficult to talk to each other. It became easier to blame each other and argue than to
talk things out calmly. The fights are getting worse and as much as you hate to admit it, you feel that if things
don't get any better, divorce may be the only other option remaining.
Don't wait until divorce really is the only option left for you and your spouse. Get help and save your
marriage. There are many ways in which you can get marriage counseling. The best thing to do is for you and your
spouse to sit down and decide which form of marriage counseling to get.
When you get quality marriage advice, you and your spouse will learn to respect each other again. You will also
learn how to peacefully resolve conflicts -- without the need to hurt each other physically and verbally.
By getting marriage counseling help, you and your spouse can work on changing how you treat each other, as well
as communicate better. With the right marriage advice, you and your spouse won't be tempted to seek comfort outside
of your marriage.
Many couples seek marriage advice from their family and friends. But then, while they mean well with their
marriage advice, family and friends aren't really the best people to seek marriage advice. If you and your spouse
are active members of your church, your pastor can provide marriage advice, as well as spiritual counseling.
Then there are marriage support classes that are offered in many places these days. There are also marriage
advice clubs and group therapy to consider. If you and your spouse aren't ready to air your dirty laundry in
public, so to speak, marriage counseling by telephone is one option to consider. You and your spouse can also watch
videos or listen to tapes designed to help married couples going through rough times.
Marriage counseling can also now be found online. You'll find marriage advice in the form of articles, e-books,
and other informational materials. There are many professional marriage counselors offering their services online.
If you decide to go this route, make sure you do your due diligence. Check the credentials of the marriage
counselor and ask about his or her success rate.
But what if your spouse does not want to seek outside help for your marital problems? You can do it alone in the
beginning, and gradually try to get your spouse to get the help you both need. If you value your marriage, and you
truly want to save it, you won't hesitate to get marriage help as soon as possible. Start by downloading my free
