We tried marriage intensive counseling
My husband and I went through a 2-day marriage intensive in response to his infidelity. We tried counseling that lasted an hour at a time, but all that did was stir up the issues we had, only to leave everything hanging when our time was up - very frustrating. So we (I should actually say I chose and he agreed) to do a 2-day 16 hour marriage intensive. Long, long underlying story, but basically, the intensive was a huge waste of $4,000 for us. He never "checked in" emotionally during the session, so much so that the therapist concluded our session by saying that in all his years of conducting these sessions, he had NEVER seen anyone more "resistant to the process" than my husband. I had such high hopes that the session would be the "wake up call" he needed to see what his actions had done to our relationship, but it was a complete failure for us. Anyone else have a good experience or bad experience with a marriage intensive?
