Let me tell you why so many couples fail in traditional relationship counseling - the sad truth is that not all therapists are created equal – Now, I recognize that might sound strange coming from me, but let me explain what I mean: Couples should not go to a therapist that isn’t qualified to do couples therapy.
Many people, (and therapists for that matter), don't realize that couples counseling is very different from individual counseling. There is such a thing as couples counseling techniques - so much of it is teaching - teaching couples how to truly communicate, how to resolve conflict, how to learn and understand their partner's point of view, etc.
In fact, it's when couples’ therapists attempt to be mediators in the room - attempt to judge who is right and who is wrong - that they get into trouble and can actually damage the relationship even further, (the truth is 3 out of 4 couples who go to couples counseling actually end up breaking up!)
Additionally, you don't want the couple to become dependent on the therapist. A good therapist doesn't want their clients to be in therapy forever! And after they’ve stopped coming to see the therapist, the therapist is not going to be standing in the kitchen mediating their fight over who should be responsible for feeding the dog! They have to learn to do it themselves and here’s where, in my opinion, the StrongMarriageNow System is the perfect medium to teach them.
The StrongMarriageNow System is a great alternative to face-to-face counseling. In fact, we’re really seeing that in most cases, watching the online videos in the privacy of your own home and completing the exercises is actually better than most face-to-face therapy.
You Can Be Happily Married Again
Being happily married has a lot more to do with knowing how to be happily married than it does with who you’re married to. If you find you’re in a situation where you’re feeling disconnected and unhappy, take heart, things can get better. There are six major skills that couples need to learn in order to have a strong and healthy marriage. These are:
Spending Time Together
Understanding Each Other
Agreeing on Money Issues
Fairly Dividing Responsibilities
Having a Satisfying and Healthy Sex Life
Couples that are strong in these areas have the best possible chance at having a long-term happy marriage. If you feel like your marriage could use some work in one or more of these areas, take action and sign up for our email list today!
We are often asked if our System can really work if it’s not face-to-face? And the answer is, absolutely! In fact, as we’ve mentioned above, sometimes it works better! We’re really seeing that in most cases, watching the relationship counseling online videos our System provides in the privacy of your own home along with using our workbook and completing the exercises, is actually better than most face-to-face therapy. Again, this is because unlike traditional therapy, we are not mediating a truce between the two of you – instead we are offering information – teaching you the skills you need learn to make your relationship, your marriage, a happy, successful one.

Common Questions & Answers
About Relationship Help
And Fixing Your Marriage
“How do we connect again as a couple.”
In the StrongMarriageNow System we talk in depth about what we call The Most Important Lesson. We point out that most couples do not spend nearly enough time alone together. Most married couples spend as little as one hour a week alone together; the average couple with kids, sometimes none. The average couple having an affair can spend up to 15 hours alone per week. Isn’t that unreal? I recommend that couples spend at least 8 hours alone together every week.
“What about infidelity? Is a relationship over after an affair?”
We answer this question at length in our teleseminar, but let me just say that the answer is: Absolutely Not! A relationship can be saved after an affair, if you both commit to forgive, get the relationship skills you need, and commit to work together on the relationship. In fact, the realtionship can not only be saved, it can be made even stronger and happier than ever before!
“What about emotional affairs?”
We frequently receive questions about what constitutes infidelity. We receive descriptions of lots of inappropriate friendships, “She’s really close to the neighbor guy, but they’re just friends,” “He’s really close to a co-worker, but they’re just friends,” etc. While we cover this in greater depth in our Affair-Proof Your Marriage series, I want to say this: when you are married, you should never be close friends with someone of the opposite sex who is not just as close to your spouse. The reason for this is because if you are close friends with someone of the opposite sex who is not also equally close to your spouse, you are getting your emotional needs met outside of your marriage. Further, you are most likely not fulfilling your spouse’s emotional needs either and that combination puts your marriage in extreme jeopardy.
“How do we stop fighting?”
In our videos, we tell you quite bluntly – don’t fight. Obviously there is more to it than this - you need to figure out ways of communicating that actually work and fighting is not one of them. The StrongMarriageNow System goes into considerable detail on better ways in which you can communicate with each other. But to briefly answer this question,let me offer some information that at the very least should help you and your partner understand what is happening when you do fight with each other. Here it is: Anger is always a secondary emotion for fear or pain. When someone is angry, they are hurt or scared - every time. So the next time the two of you start to fight, take a moment and ask yourself, “What am I really hurt about, or afraid of, here.” And even more importantly, take a moment and consider that your partner is also hurt or frightened about something - and that should matter to you. Before you attack, have a little compassion for each other.
“What about Christian Couples Counseling?”
StrongMarriageNow.com is compatible with most faiths, religions and walks of life.
