Why is this so hard?
No one will deny that marriage an be hard. Couples counseling is meant to deal with what is hard in a relationship, such as:
Breaking out of patterns that keep you stuck in relational frustration.
Learning to listen to each other with understanding and empathy.
Negotiating problems in ways that lead to understanding and resolution.
Recovering from negative emotional arguments without the silent treatment or escalating aggression.
Developing the safety needed to be intimate with each other in mutually satisfying ways.
Rebuilding trust after an affair or other betrayals.
Learning how to handle the daily challenges of parenting together
