Sometimes we run into trouble in our marriage that requires outside help. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Every marriage goes through tough times. We're human. There are different levels of trouble we can get into. It could be minor scraps that seem to be endless. If not tended to correctly these can turn into all out war. Or there could be the situation where one or both of the spouses gets distracted with other relationships or work or hobbies and soon there is distance between you.
Then there are the deep hurts we can cause each other. It can be anything from financial to emotional to verbal to physical abuse or unfaithfulness. Many couples just give up at this point. But this is not the time to quit. Husbands and wives encounter these difficult times but don't know how to handle them. Your marriage is going to be tested. You are going to have hard times. You will be tempted to give up, quit and divorce. That's not always the answer. We recommend you back up a little, give yourself some room to breathe and time to think, and take a better assessment of what's really going on.
Sometimes we are so close to the pain that we can't see clearly to know how to move forward. That's when you need someone who's unbiased to listen to you and able to point you in the right direction. We've helped couples who have been in these predicaments. Most of these problems can be worked through. There's hope. Let us know if we can help you.
