What is marriage counselling for?
When two people vow to tie their lives together in marriage, they pledge to a lifetime commitment which is for better or for worst. Sadly, a lot of marriage failed to make it during the worst of times. A lot of them plunge into the pit of desperation and hopelessness. Some became faultfinders, unforgiving, cheaters. What happened to them? How many of these couples engaged in marriage counselling before giving up? How many of them fought real hard to preserve their marriage yet failed?
When God initiated marriage, He designed it to last a lifetime. Further on, when the children have all grown-up and married, the couple will only have each other again just like when they were just starting to live together. But in these golden years, they will be more appreciative they have each other to share lonely afternoons and quiet evenings. They will be glad because they have someone who stayed with them through the years and they understand each other very well now. Their children will be proud of them. Modern life has a big effect on family life, communication gap in the home can become prevalent if not addressed rightly. The stress of modern living, the high maintenance cost, the many desires and conflicting individual priorities within the family can strain the marriage to the edge until divorce will be imminent. This is what marriage counselling is for, that is to help assess the married life situation, show the possible options the couple can take to change their situations and level down presumptions and prejudices to save their marriage.
But when couples are not at ease to have a face to face session with a marriage counselor, there is quite a number of reliable online marriage counselling sites which can very well serve the same purpose. Online marriage counselling will keep each case confidential also so there is nothing to worry about. But before making the appointment, the choice of counselling site must preferably one recommended by someone trustworthy and has a high satisfaction review from clients. The couple must be determined to save their marriage. After all, this is what marriage counselling is for, to help the couple find new strength for their marriage and know the ways to avoid ending their relationship by divorce.
