Building the Staying Power of Marriage through Marriage Counseling

 

A picture of a couple happy in their twilight years never fails to elicit respect from people. There is much respect because marriages lasting this long are exceptional. They are exceptional, not because they have they reached this age, but because they have reached this age together as a couple. How can your own marriage gain that kind of staying power to withstand the marital challenges you’ll face as husband and wife?

 

Beyond Love

It is common knowledge that the love that binds couples to make it this far isn’t enough. With personality differences and domestic challenges, it takes hard work, patience and selflessness to keep a marriage harmonious. Even rock-steady marriages will experience some rough times. Many of them would tell you that the key to many happy years together is about finding peaceful ways to resolve concerns. This is an area where a counselor can help.

 

Getting Through Peaks and Valleys

If you imagine your marriage will be a perfect one through and through, you’re in for one big disappointment. Even with strong love and commitment, you may still go through times of highs and lows or peaks and valleys. During this time a lot of things may happen. You or your spouse may change. There are many stressors that may affect your marriage, that often result in one or both partners being symptomatic of anxiety of depression. There may also be pride and indifference to stand in the way of communicating and improving your relationship. If you love for each other deeply and to get past these challenges, consider being proactive in keeping your relationship strong.

 

Start By Finding the Right Counselor

Even with great love and intense desire to rebuild your marriage, it won’t happen in a day. You need to be patient and to work hard on improving your relationship. You can proactively work on your marriage by first finding a nonjudgmental counselor to help you improve your communication as a couple. The initial steps may not be that easy; there will be setbacks and difficulties. But if you are both committed to rebuilding and making your marriage work, your patience and hard work will pay off.

 

Reap What You Sow

If you’ll invest love, care, selflessness, hard work and patience into your effort to rebuild your marriage, with the right professional assistance, you may get what your heart yearns for: a happy and strong marriage. Counseling with an independently contracted therapist from Carolina Counseling Services -Fuquay-Varina, NC may not guarantee that you’ll have a perfect marriage all through the days of your lives.
