Did you know that only about one fourth of divorcing couples report seeking professional help to improve their marriage? Do due to the stigma that remains in existence about therapy and counseling, most couples wait an average of six years after serious problems develop before they seek marital therapy. In fact only about 10 percent of married couples ever seek assistance from marriage counselors and psychologists.

If you are reading this, you are likely considering seeing a marriage counselor or psychologist specializing in relationship and marital problems. We hope that you continue reading this important information.

The majority of couples who go to counseling are couples who are considering divorce.  The most common reasons for seeking professional help are emotional affection and communication issues followed by divorce and separation concerns. Other reasons couples seek counseling include arguments, concerns about children, sex life problems, personal problems, and trust issues like infidelity.

It is unfortunate that more couples don’t seek the guidance of a professional before significant problems become permanent aspects of the relationship. It is difficult to alter the course of a relationship that has been plagued by problems for many years. However, there is good news from the couples therapy research. The research does suggest that about 75% of couples who receive marriage counseling are better off than similar couples who do not. In therapy, partners learn how to effectively communicate with each other and understand how to increase certain aspects of their relationship that are associated with high quality marriages. Respect, openness, genuineness, trust, emotional connection, and support, typically improve when both parties are committed to better the relationship.
