Marriage has a unique set of qualities and challenges that can add stress and complications to your relationship. A successful marriage necessitates constant communication and compromises. The loss of independence can be a frightening prospect and lead to anxiety and confusion. Living together and sharing in the home’s responsibilities whether it is paying bills, cleaning, or driving carpool, requires a level of understanding and respect that for many marriages has gone under-developed or nurtured. Life stress can create an enormous burden on the relationship. Creating a solid foundation that can withstand life’s slings and arrows is a necessary ingredient to a successful and fulfilling marriage.

Marriage counseling is essentially couples counseling with the added component of a marriage, which brings specific challenges. In marriage counseling, partners are asked to evaluate their marriage problems and assess the root causes of the difficulties. This often times leads to assuming responsibility and acknowledging your own faults. This process of awareness is coupled with strategic planning to redesign the false assumptions that have eroded the marriage’s foundation.
  • Assumptions, we often say, are the termites of relationships.
Interwoven into this realignment of responsibility and problem solving is the introduction to learning how to make investments in the relationship through “bids for connection”. This philosophy of relationships is born out of the belief that paying attention to and reinforcing the good aspects of the relationship is just as important as solving the relationship’s problems. A series of exercises coupled with specific books for education and guidance help bridge the gap from session to session.

Marriage is a special and unique institution that has a philosophical structure imbedded in its ideals. The careful and constant work needed to promote and enjoy its benefits is often neglected. Investing in this all-important relationship and philosophy of being can revitalize your marriage and bring back the stability and companionship we all strive for.
