Every relationship is bound to experience both the highs and the lows. This is quite normal. But determining whether your marriage is experiencing a small bump or if it is something more serious is no small task. If you are asking yourself these tough questions, it might be time to seek marriage counseling from a Southlake therapist.
Marriages tend to change over the course of time especially if there are other circumstances present or a major transition is happening. For example, you might be feeling the stresses of having another child or perhaps your spouse is back in college pursuing a graduate degree. A good marriage counselor can help you get through these difficult periods so you and your partner can regain your focus on each other.
If you are sailing through life happy and satisfied when suddenly your spouse suggests therapy, you should take that as a good sign. In the beginning, you might wonder what you have been doing wrong and that you have failed in marriage and will get divorced. But this is certainly not always the case. Your spouse may just be being proactive and wants the marriage to work out and is willing to put forth the effort.
Like we mentioned earlier, all relationships experience ups and downs and most couples dig out from the downs and move forward. But if you feel like you are merely treading water or you’re the only one working at the relationship, a marriage counselor can help turn this around.
If you feel a marriage counselor is right for you, give us a call.
