Everyone who become engaged and married would stay together forever out of love and happiness. However, as anyone will tell you, this is far from being perfect world and divorce is happening at a larger rate as of now. What do you think is the reason for this? This mean that the society is breaking down and the family is no longer functioning? What shall you do to stay happy and stay your family together again? Marriage therapy is one of the best way to fix and settle the distance and gap between the main member of a family. Some husbands and wives will try to avoid the marriage therapy because they feel that it is something done by people with sever problems with their partner. They do not see their own problems as sever as they have. At the end, their children will suffer from their problems.

Well, I'd certainly be willing to try and see if it helps. If that's what we might need, I would definitely consider it. I'm not against marriage therapy. It might not help for everyone, but if there is a chance it might, then I'm willing to give it a shot and see if it could help.

I don't know if I'd say that therapy is the best way to fix a marriage. I'm not sure on the exact averages, but I'm pretty sure that a huge percent of people that do couseling still end up getting divorced. I think it's hard for therapy to work because therapists tend to give out the same cookie cutter marriage advice to everyone and lets face it, everyone's marriage is different. I think it's worth a try though if you want to save your marriage, especially if you have kids. People are quick to marry now I think in part because it's so easy to erase it all if you change your mind. It's hard on the kids if you divorce, but sometimes that is better then seeing mommy and daddy fight all the time with hate in their eyes.

I agree on on that some that undergo the counseling still divorced. But, It can help in some other way. It can made you realize that the family is more important than any other things, but again it depends on the part of the mom and dad to decide what they feel is the best, but (for the last) their children will suffer from it if they would not try to fix it.

Well, I have been there and done that, and believe me it does not work. I was taken for a fool and all my money also. I do not recommend marriage anymore. I do however believe that when two people are meant to be together, you just know it. It's hard to explain. It's just natural.
