Whatever You Do...Don't Wait to Get Help

Marriage Counseling

If you think your marriage is in trouble, do not wait. Seek help as soon as possible.

The longer you wait, the hard it will be to get your relationship back on track.

The Effectiveness of Marriage Counseling

The science on the effectiveness of marriage counseling is being studied in great detail these days. The data from studies has at times been mixed. Some research has shown that marriage counseling is not as effective as people think, that women seem to get more from it than men and that it might not have a lasting effect on the couple's marriage.

Despite this, we think that receiving professional help before problems reach critical stage is very beneficial to a marriage.
