Sharing life with that “special” someone who you once thought of as the “answer to all my dreams” can take many different turns over time. With divorce rates catastrophically high, many might wonder if a long-term, committed relationship is possible. At Answers for Youth & Families, PLLC, we can assure you, such a relationship is not only possible, but also very likely with the right assistance.
Every relationship endures trying times. Job stress, financial challenges, physical health, children, trauma, natural disasters, and many other issues can add overwhelming strain to the relationship. When such issues occur, those who are not aware of how to navigate such waters often resort to seeking improvement through maladaptive avenues such as substance abuse, divorce, abandonment, and many other possibilities. Many also encounter further complications such as infidelity, legal fees in the thousands (if not tens of thousands) of dollars, overall reduction in financial standing, family/social support disintegration, hopelessness, depression, anxiety, and the list goes on. The cost is far greater than most can even fathom. Reduction in financial standing, destruction of family bonds, shattering of children’s worlds, relocation, and many other outcomes are only the tip of the divorce iceberg.
Effective marriage counseling cannot only help correct these issues and avert the deleterious impact of relationship strain; it can also prevent them in the first place. Answers for Youth & Families, PLLC, have helped numerous couples get back on track to a meaningful relationship. Marriage Counseling or Couples Counseling can be extremely beneficial and can pay great dividends for the time invested.
