Couples Counseling Should Not Be a Last Resort
The divorce rate in the United States is higher now than it was centuries ago, but it has been declining in recent years (National Center for Health Statistics). What these statistics don’t tell you is the reason for the declining divorce rate.
There are no statistics to prove that couples counseling is responsible for the declining divorce rate in the United States. However, many experts encourage marriage counseling as a proactive solution that helps a significant number of couples resolve their issues.
Counseling as a Last Resort
According to a number of marriage counselors, many couples reach out to counselors as the last resort to mend their broken relationships. What these couples fail to realize is that counseling can prevent major conflicts if they seek it earlier in the process.
While counseling can still help couples to save their marriages at late stages, it may take more time and more pain for everyone involved.
What Prevents You from Seeking Counseling?
Many people prefer to keep their issues to themselves because they are afraid or ashamed, or want to project a good image as a couple. They may also think that the issues will soon dissipate or they will find a way to resolve them on their own. Cost is another concern for couples with modest incomes.
Contrary to common beliefs, turning to a marriage counselor is not something to be ashamed or afraid of. In fact, seeking marriage counseling is healthy and proactive. Without a non-partisan counselor, conflicts and issues may become more intense, causing you and your spouse distress or contributing to intense negative feelings and thoughts. The cost should not dissuade you, either; most insurance covers family counseling.
Counseling as an Early Resort
Couples therapy or marriage counseling works best as a proactive tool to strengthen a relationship or as a first resort when the union is shaken. If your marriage and family life are at the top of your priority list, call Carolina Counseling Services in Fuquay-Varina, NC, so a counselor contracted by CCS can help you resolve your concerns before they become recurring or major troubling issues. Don’t get caught up in the belief that the concerns will dissipate soon, and don’t wait until divorce is imminent.
Marriage counseling can help improve your communication and avoid misunderstandings. Are you a proactive couple? Do you wish to keep your union harmonious, happy, and loving? Then embrace couples counseling as a first or next resort, not as the last on your list of solutions.
