But timing is everything when it comes to marriage counseling or when we have any relationship issues. After a certain period of time the motivational level of both the parties involved gets down to zero and then its too late for couples counseling. Unfortunately, couples wait a bit too long when it comes to seeking counseling sometimes even more than six years. Yes, you read it right, six years of hurt and trauma and only then seek a marriage counselor. Timing is essential to make sure counseling works like a charm and you get back to your happy married life.
Couples keep arguing about the same thing over and over for years without communicating effectively & honestly. Conflicts are inevitable part of any relationship but its important to pick your battles wisely in any relationship. Sometimes petty issues are thought of as important and the hurt continues to grow.
An experienced Marriage Counselor can help couples talk to each other honestly and sort out issues amicably by creating an relaxed environment, touching back on relationship goals and suggesting tips like making realistic timelines for change.
