Marriage Counseling Pros and Cons: The Two Sides of the Story
Marriage is not a human institution or a genius proposition by humanity to establish a society. Marriage is a holy institution, a concept that was generated from God.
However, even if marriage is God’s gift to humanity, it is not perfect. This is because marriage is still a human institution, with humans as the primary foundation, and subject to human frailties.
No wonder there are almost two million married couples who file for a divorce every year. When taken for granted, marriage can be a commodity that can be easily destroyed once consumed.
For this reason, some people have come up with an idea to solve this growing problem. These people believe that it is not right for a married couple to abandon their vows and forget the love that once had bound them together just because of some human weaknesses.
It was in the 1950s that marriage counseling was established in Australia. The primary goal of marriage counseling is to maintain an unwavering married life for couples.
However, not all people agree with the benefits that marriage counseling gives. In spite of its many advantages, some people still find some fault with this kind of psychological strategy.
Here is a list of its pros and cons.
1. It creates full realization of the problem. Some couples tend to think that they are the only ones who are experiencing the problem but after they have talked to a marriage counselor, they realize that there are many others who experience the same thing.
2. It can help you understand your spouse better. Therefore, the way you value your wife or your husband becomes wider and that vision can help you see the possibility of finding a solution.
1. Some couples tend to depend on marriage counseling. There are many instances where people do not exert any effort to resolve their problems on their own because they know that there is a marriage counselor that they can turn to.
2. It is simply considered by some couple as a last-ditch measure before a divorce. It does not have much value. In fact, in almost 70% of married couples, the wife is usually the one that has decided to end the marriage and they are planning to proceed with a divorce even before seeking the help of a counselor.
The bottom line is that with or without marriage counseling, married couples should learn to solve their problems. Marriage counseling can be a great help, but should never be relied upon exclusively to save a shaky marriage.
