The Top 3 Marriage Problems Couples Face

After providing marriage counseling for a number of years, I have seen and heard many stories. You could say there is not much I have not heard.

Be Thankful For Your Marriage

As Thanksgiving has drawn near (Only a couple of days left to get prepared!), I keep being stirred more and more to focus on what I am thankful for. I do wonder why we don’t keep this focus all year round. It’s been demonstrated by research that gratitude has many benefits. Why don’t we tend to make it more of a habit? It is a good question, but one that we may try to answer at another time.

Many of us want to be reassured that what we are about to embark on will be worth it.
