Online Marriage Counseling: Is It Worth It?July 8, 2019
If your marriage is on the edge and divorce seems imminent you are probably interested in doing whatever it takes in order to save your marriage. You may have tried all the expensive marriage counseling services, brought videos, systems, and plans that are supposed to help you grow together as a couple. Unfortunately, you probably haven’t found the key ingredient that is required to save your marriage from divorce and that is: intimacy.
The internet has made the world shrink in many ways – and luckily, family counselling costs are much lower than in-person counseling fees. Therapists who work online usually charge only a few dollars per minute, and some even offer initial sessions for free. What do you have to lose?

A related explanation is that this is his way to retaliate about something that he felt was unfair to him and a common way of doing so employs the ‘Passive-Aggressive’ mode. These are too far away speculations, I said, so we have to gather more information; but let us assume that this is the case here. If indeed so, do not worry, I continued: marriage is a reciprocal chain of behaviors. Something within one spouse’s actions triggers the others, which means that you can do things that would effect and change your husband’s behavioral pattern.
Fixing a broken marriage takes work and commitment, and being the best “you” you can be can make the task more manageable. If you’ve let your looks fall by the wayside, work on improving your health and take time to look your best each day. If you’ve stopped communicating with your partner, take him or her somewhere special and break the ice.
Marriage counseling services are for a wide spectrum of needs. Never feel that your problems are too large or too small to benefit from such a process. However, you need to feel comfortable with the person that you are working with. Their style of counseling as well as their credentials can have a huge impact on whether you are successful with it or not.
Many other things, I told her, are related to the “Age Factor” and the perceived “Quality” of previous and current relationship. J. had not included the sex topic yet in our Online Counseling dialogue and males are very sensitive about that aspect of a relationship.
