Happy Through the Years with a Counselor for a Third Wheel

 

Marriage is a profound relationship in which people profess the highest ideals of love, trust, fidelity, and sacrifice for each other. It is one of humanity’s deepest and most intimate treasures. Like any precious jewel, a relationship may become lackluster when not treated properly or given the right care.

Marital issues test even the most loving relationships. Some of them can be taken in stride, while others push relationships into dangerous territory. These conflicts not only threaten the marriage’s covenant of friendship, love, and partnership, but also test your ability to resolve them.

 

The Intervention of a Third Wheel

Trials, pain, issues, and conflict are all part of being married, just as love, bliss, and happiness are. You cannot totally eliminate misunderstandings in a relationship; there are just too many things to argue about. Conflict may occur during healthy interaction, but resolving the issues is necessary before the conflict becomes hurtful.

So, what can you do to minimize your conflicts, to discuss your issues with maturity and sensibility, and to avoid inflicting further pain in your relationship? Reach out for the professional support of a third wheel—a marriage counselor.

 

Counseling as an Intervention

Counseling is a helpful intervention for proactive and troubled marriages alike. Marital problems can bring you considerable emotional distress, contributing to or intensifying emotional/behavioral issues such as anxiety, depression, mood swings, substance abuse, insomnia, etc. Do not feel ashamed or inadequate about seeking counseling. It is a necessary intervention when issues arise and you feel lost, or can’t remain objective to handle them well.

Don’t put it off because you think the problem will dissipate or it will cost you a lot of money. Insurance can be of tremendous benefit in this instance. Most insurance plans cover family counseling sessions to resolve your marital concerns and help you enjoy a harmonious relationship.

 

Bringing in Someone to Intervene

Once you recognize the symptoms of a troubled marriage, consulting a counselor—the third wheel to stabilize your relationship—can be the best decision you can make. Living with stressful circumstances at home can mar your happiness as a couple and as a family. With insurance to cover your counseling, acting early to bring in the professional help can be easier than you think.
