Marriage therapy has been a great success in so many people’s marriage. It can help heal old wounds and reignite the passion between you and your spouse.
Everything needs maintenance to run properly and with no problems. You send your car into the mechanic to get an oil change so that it doesn’t break down, causing you to have to make even more expensive repairs. You update your computer with new software so that you do not get viruses that will wipe out your entire hard drive. The same principle applies to marriages just as it applies to everything else. Relationships are works in progress, and marriage therapy is one way we keep our marriage in tip top shape.
Is your sex life boring you? Do small, insignificant things annoy you about your spouse? Do you feel mentally trapped? These are things that have to be nipped in the bud before you find yourself in divorce court. Marriage therapy takes the philosophy of “prevention” to a level where it works in human relationships. Marriage therapy will have you critically examining the points in your marriage that you can fix, and the points where you might be weakest at. Let me tell you a story.
I knew this one couple who seemed absolutely perfect. They never argued. They always smiled and loved to do just about everything with each other. It was almost like watching “Leave it to Beaver.” Well, underneath the smiling facade was a lot of problems. I advised the boyfriend to seek a marriage therapist. I love giving relationship advice, but he really needed to drill into the problem. Well, the therapist fixed a lot of what was wrong. You see, they both put on a good face, but behind the scenes, they were not necessarily compatible.
He was a messy slob and she was neat and always liked to be punctual. He loved rock music while she preferred classical. He loved to go out while she enjoyed a quiet, peaceful evening at home. They were attracted and there was a lot that kept their relationship together, but the engine of how they were going to get along day in and day out was not working. Well, the marriage therapist was able to step in and make sure that nothing became too dire.
She was told to let her hair down a bit while he brushed up on how to be just a bit more conservative. In fact, playing each other’s roles helped them learn about what made their relationship tick, and they were all the stronger for it. I saw that couple years later, with children, and they thanked me for pointing them in just the right direction.
