Hi Bob 1234
I certainly could not say for sure that Marriage Counselling will help you, but I can certainly say that it helped my wife and I.
My marriage was in big trouble, I mean REALLY BIG trouble (see my other posts and you will see what I mean). Many others here seemed to agree that my marriage was virtually dead and that a recovery sounded somewhat unlikely.
I have been to Counselling once on my own, and my wife and I have been two times together, in the last few weeks. We will be continuing to go for some time...I don't know how many more times.
Our marriage still has lots of things to work through, but I have come from a place of believing it was all over and impossible to recover, to now I am in a place where I am happier in my marriage than I have been for many years.
My wife and I are now walking on the same path together and actively solving our issues together, and emotional closeness and intimacy has been restored to a large degree. We are much happier than before, me especially. As an unexpected result, our sex life has ignited again, probably some of the sweetest and most passionate sexual intimacy we have ever had, and this is nothing short of a miracle as far as I am concerned...I certainly never even imagined this was possible, I never even hoped for this result, but it happened.
Has it solved all our problems? Far from it, but things are much better now, and our relationship is close and intimate again for the first time in 10 years. Going to marriage Counselling was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
You have everything to gain and little to lose by trying Marriage Counselling. I wish you lots of good luck.
