Having a happy marriage doesn’t occur with just luck. Couples can use an outside push to help resolve tension that has built up in a relationship due to a lack of empathy or unresolved issues. Holding grudges or negative feelings for a long period of time can allow a wrongful energy to take control over the relationship you have with your partner. As time goes on the partnership that was started so many years ago has evolved and changed shape. Each individual is different from how they were and often times personalities can clash as they attempt to relearn the other. Marriage counseling is a bridge that can help develop an understanding between partners, emotions are complex and having a professional guide the process is useful. There is a huge misconception that marriage counseling is only useful to couples after huge issues like infidelity or as a last attempt before divorce but that is not the case. Marriage counseling is also not just a quick fix for one person, it is a combined effort between both partners to resolve all underlying conflict.
