6 Signs That You Need Marriage Counseling Right
NowBy Lisa Pennhttp//how-to-save-marriage.org

  • You must forgive my morbid analogy, but marital
    problems are like cancer. The earlier you detect
    it and treat it, the more chances you have to
    beat it and survive.
  • Marriage problems are the same. If you address
    your problems early on and solve them on time,
    you dramatically increase the survival chances of
    your relationship. If you put it off and wait for
    the problems disappear on their own, dont be
    surprised to be heading straight to divorce.

6 Signs That You Need Couples Counseling Right
Now
  • This is a list of the most dangerous marital
    problems those that left unsolved will most
    likely end your marriage. If you have one or more
    of these problems, its time to seek some kind of
    marriage counseling, or couples therapy Right
    now.

Sign 1 Lack of Communication and Support
  • Two recent studies, published in the American
    Journal of Family Psychology, found that couples
    who went on to divorce were more likely to be
    poorer communicators, and tended to display more
    negative emotions and support mechanisms than
    people who stayed married.

5
  • For example, the couples who went on to divorce
    were more likely to use blame and invalidation in
    their communication efforts. They were more
    likely to discourage a spouse from expressing his
    or her feelings, and to display inappropriate
    pessimism. Husbands who were more verbally
    aggressive early on were also more likely to be
    part of couples who went on to divorce later.
    (Source is here)
  • No problem in a marriage can be solved without
    open, honest communication. Lack of personal,
    intimate exchange in a marriage is a very bad
    sign.

Sign2 Marriage Resembles a Battlefield
  • No matter how in love you used to be and how much
    fun you used to have, many of us wake up one
    morning and realize that the marriage has turned
    into a battlefield (Very often After having
    children).
  • Lines are drawn you stick to your guns on every
    issue. You dig in on your side your husband digs
    in on the other side. Neither of you will budge.
  • This pushes all your intimacy away and you no
    longer enjoy his company.

7
  • With time, you find yourself taking a side
    opposite your spouse. This damages the very
    foundation of your marriage. When We turns into
    me is a definite reason to seek marriage
    therapy immediately.

8
Sign 3 The Wrong Fighting Style
  • Seven long term studies have found that that the
    way that a couple handles conflicts can predict
    if they will end up divorcing. The studies
    included people from all ranges on the marriage
    spectrum, from newlyweds to long-term marriages.

9
  • While fighting is normal in any relationship, and
    even essential (because no two people will ever
    agree about everything), your fighting style
    can predict if the marriage can survive the
    conflicts or not. These are the signs that your
    conflict resolution process requires urgent help
  • 1. When conflict emerges, you wait until things
    build up and than explode. You or your partner
    talks down to you and criticizes you harshly. One
    or both of you are simply mean to each other.
  • 2. You or your spouse do not express yourself
    directly, but beat around the bush hoping the
    other side will get itand you constantly bring
    up past hurts.
  • 3. A simple disagreement is always escalated and
    getting out of control.

10
Sign 4 Relationship Stagnation
  • Are you one of many couples out there who, every
    night, sit across the dinner table from one
    another (if you still have dinner together) and
    wonder who is this person I am living with? Why
    did I marry him?

11
  • When a marriage falls into stagnation, its
    because somewhere along the line one or both of
    you stopped taking care of it. Nothing is really
    wrong with our marriage its just boring and
    stuck. You have to work to pay the bills, maybe
    you have kids to take care of, and/or sick,
    elderly parents who require your care and
    attention. You dont have time to spend with your
    spouse.
  • If your relationship doesnt continue to grow,
    its wallowing. This is a dangerous seed that
    needs to be attended to. Marriage stagnation is
    why a marriage breaks down. You care about
    everything else but the marriage and it will be
    sacrificed as a result

12
Sign 5 Little to No Sex Life
  • The breakdown of your sex life is one of the most
    recognized signs of a failing marriage. Sexual
    intimacy is critical for the bond between a
    husband and a wife.
  • To put is simply, a marriage without sex will, at
    some point, end up in divorce or being a marriage
    of convenience. The next step is usually an
    emotional and/or physical affair.

13
  • If your husband has a low sex drive My article
    about Sexless Marriage will help YOU. If you are
    the one losing interest in sex, my post titled I
    Love My Husband but I Dont Want Sex Anymore may
    interest you.

Sign 6 The Bad Overweighs the Good
  • Most of us are able to look deep inside and
    answer this question truthfully Is there more
    bad than good in our marriage?
  • If the answer is yes, your marriage is in trouble
    and you need marriage counseling of some sort.
    The cancer will grow and eat up your marriage
    until its over, if you dont act and do
    something right now.

15
  • If you are hesitant about traditional marriage
    counseling (many of us are) because of the high
    costs, the lack of privacy, availability and
    comfort, you have other options.
  • The first option is a marriage saving program
    online, which is a step by step self-help book
    (with work books) that shows you exactly what and
    how to resolve your marital problems. It costs
    less than one session of marriage therapy and it
    can be just as effective (it was for me anyway).

16
  • The second option is online marriage counseling,
    which is also much less expensive (because you
    usually per minute) and you can do it from home
    at your preferred time and with total privacy
    (you can learn more about this option Right
    Here).
  • What ever you decide to do Just do it. Dont
    let the marriage cancerous problems doom your
    relationship and dont wait until its too late.
    There are some points in a marriage when nothing
    can help it anymore, but you can prevent yourself
    from getting there.  
  • Dont WAIT, ACT NOW.
