text size A A A

Is your marriage in trouble? You’re not alone.

In fact, millions of people say that their marriage is plagued with trust issues, money trouble, emotional or physical infidelity, and verbal abuse. Many people blame themselves. They feel like if they only “tried harder” or changed something about their appearance or demeanor, they might have prevented the unhappiness permeating their marriage.

Before jumping straight to a separation however, many couples seek counseling. The hope is that with regular communication and the help of a professional, a couple might work through issues and emerge, ten sessions later, fulfilled and happy.

Unfortunately, many counseling methods are outdated and ill suited for repairing a broken relationship. Therapists might ask a husband and wife to focus on what went wrong over the years, or have them discuss communication techniques. But, at the end of the day, this often just drives couples even further apart.

If you’ve experienced the futility of this situation and feel like the only solution is a divorce, you might have one last option. There are alternative methods of healing a marriage that focus on making things right rather than focusing on what’s wrong. You don’t have to dig into your past, dredge up problems, and practice infantile communication techniques. Rather, you can neutralize your problems and focus on rebuilding your connection.
