Signs You Should Consider Going to Marriage Counseling

Are you starting to worry about the state of your marriage? Attending marriage counseling can be a great decision that can get you and your spouse communicating more openly with each other again, and potentially save your relationship.

Here are some signs you should consider going to marriage counseling.

  • You don’t speak much: If you feel as though you rarely speak to each other anymore, or that you’re unable to have conversations that go beyond surface level topics, counseling can be helpful to reteach you some important communication strategies.
  • You are scared to speak your mind: If you fight a lot to the point where you feel scared to speak your mind on certain issues, then it’s important for you to work through whatever issues are keeping you from having honest discussions about certain things.
  • You keep secrets from each other: Feeling like you need to keep certain things secret from your spouse is not a healthy habit to get into for your relationship. Sure, everyone has a right to privacy, but privacy is not the same thing as secrecy. You should feel comfortable being transparent with each other in your relationship.
  • You and your spouse are in or have considered an affair: Whatever the reason for these desires or actions, an affair is obviously something that can wreck a relationship. If you believe the relationship is worth salvaging, you can go to counseling to work through whatever issues led to it.
  • You feel as though there is a lack of love and affection: If love and affection seems to be lacking in your relationship, going to counseling can help you work out the best way to rekindle the flame, so to speak.

  • "I first came to Ms. Jacquelyn Lutz of Appelhof, Pfeifer and Hart in October of 2016. It was definitely the worst time in my life and she compassionately spoke with me about my options. Ms. Lutz thoroughly explained the laws, statutes, process and what to expect going forward. What was supposed to be one case, turned into three intricate cases that took a huge toll on me and my family. Ms. Lutz represented me in court on all three cases with a vast knowledge of the laws and how to proceed accordingly. During all three cases she kept me informed, calm, gave me resources to utilize, and (most important) gave me a realistic view of what may come next. Ms. Lutz knew each case required a great deal of knowledge and creative thinking on how to legally proceed forward with each case. My family and friends are forever grateful for the amazing representation by Ms. Lutz. I highly recommend Ms. Lutz for anyone needing or considering superb representation for any kind of family law.
