When To See A Marriage Counselor
Throughout my career, I’ve been asked multiple times, “How do we know if we need to see a marriage counselor?” or “Is it normal for my spouse to do this?”
Most married or dating couples feel that everything is going well in their relationship. One thing I look for in a successful striving marriage is the daily effort that is put into it. Chances are; if you are not fulfilling a need of your spouse daily then it may be going south. Let me explain, we have spent many years of our life being independent. Working, hobbies, and generally just taking care of ourselves. All of a sudden, we get married and BAMMM! Everything you’ve learned to do for yourself now needs to be done with or for the other person.
Some people adjust to this well and with others might take some time. One thing I know for sure is that a strong marriage or connection does not seem to be present when both parties continue doing the exact thing they did before they got married. For instance; if I go hang with my buddies multiple times a week, leaving my spouse to watch the Bachelor, then no real connection is being made. Not saying time for yourself is bad. Instead think about your partners needs and wants. If they want to be left alone watching the bachelor; then you have fulfilled a need. If you leave willy nilly, it just becomes routine whether one or both are happy with it.
