How Couples Counseling Can Help 3 Types of Couples
Dec 28, 2017
When should you go in for couples counseling? Is there a best time? Sometimes, couples go in for counseling when the relationship is on the rocks. At this time, it might be a bit late to rebuild the relationship. So it's best to go in for couples counseling earlier, when things haven't reached a fever pitch.
At the same time, remember that it's never too late. If the two of you are determined to make things work, then you can go in for couples counseling even when it seems like you are on the verge of divorce. It's only going to help you; it will never hurt you or your relationship.
Here are a few more things to consider before you go for couples counseling:
What Type of Relationship Do You Have?
There are couples who keep fighting all the time. They respond to aggression with aggression. Then there are couples who like to avoid the issues between them. They just never make time to talk about their issues. And then there are couples who like to discuss everything reasonably and come to a conclusion.
What type of couple lasts longest? You'd think it would be the one which makes time to talk about issues rationally. But the fact is that all types of couples last equally long. So it doesn't matter what type of personality you or your loved one has. You still have a good shot at making things work.
What Are You Looking for in a Relationship?
Both people need to have the same expectations going into the relationship. So, for example, if you want to have kids but your partner doesn't, then it might be difficult to make things work. This is the kind of thing on which it's difficult to reach a compromise.
However, if the things you fight about are not so serious, such as not spending enough time together, not having enough sex, not going out enough etc., then these are definitely things you can work on and improve in order to have a strong relationship in the long run.
