| | Re: Bringing up marriage counseling, is there a right way?
I don't think there is any one right way. You simply calmly say that you think you need marriage counseling.
And if she answers with any of the responses you mentioned, simply do broken record, "I think we need marriage counseling. Yes, I see, but I think we need marriage counseling. No, I don't agree with you, but I think we need marriage counseling." Don't argue, don't get derailed or diverted. Just continue to calmly make your point.
It wouldn't hurt to bring it up in family counseling; your counselor there would probably support the idea.
