Re: sharing IC with wife, good or bad idea?
Depends on the couple, the problems and the quality of the counselor. My husband and I have had no problems sharing the same counselor. She's been with us for 13 years now, knows EVERYTHING and all 3 of us are on the same page about what needs to be fixed. There are no secrets.
I believe she can totally be objective because I've seen it from her in the past. For us it makes sense because she knows both of us and our dynamic. It just simplifies the process.
