Marriage is likely one of the most difficult pursuits you will seek to endeavor. Once the honeymoon stage is over and life happens, as it always does, keeping your love and intimacy in tact can seem like a daunting journey leading to no place good. Sadly, we’ve seen the pattern of destruction over and over in our 30 years of experience as couple and marriage counselors.
Yet, a happy marriage is one of the most rewarding relationships a human being can experience. The connection, intimacy and couplehood you can experience is well worth it’s weight in gold. There is nothing more gratifying and inspiring than a life well lived, together. Not only for yourself. Your marriage will impact generations to come in your family, friends, and community.
We believe there is always hope…
Not because we wish upon a star for healing and transformation in your marriage, but because we’ve seen it. We’ve seen couples come back from the brink of divorce after years of destruction and devastation. We have seen with our own eyes, couples overcome infidelity, poor communication, tragic experiences, financial problems and much more. Everyday couples, just like you two, beating the odds.
So, you see a glimpse of hope… now what? How can you restore and enrich what’s been lost? We can tell you this: it won’t involve a magic wand, secret pixie dust, or wishful thinking. You’re going to have to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Period. There is no other way around it.
With everything else in life, you’re going to have to do the work. You’ve heard it before, in many different ways. The early bird gets the worm. You reap what you sow. If you want to make withdraws you’re going to have to make deposits.
The question is… what are you going to do about it?
Are you going to succumb to your feelings of hopelessness and pain? Are you going to believe what you feel, rather than the possibilities? Isn’t it time to re-write the story of your life together? You two can do it, regardless of what’s happened – we can help!
