Saving Your Marriage
If you are contemplating divorce or have been asked for a divorce by your spouse, you may want to try marriage counseling before terminating the marriage. Because divorce is one of the most stressful events a family will experience, it is important to explore all avenues that may save your marriage before taking that step. Many marriages have been helped by marriage counseling, so if you and your spouse are willing to give it a try, it just may help yours, too. Marriage counseling is most useful when both parties are willing to participate and enter into the process with positive attitudes and open minds.
If you feel your spouse is not open to sharing his/her feelings with a mental health professional, you may want to share some literature about counseling with him or her. If you know couples that have been through marriage counseling and were able to reconcile, share your concerns with them. Maybe they can offer some insight and explain how marriage counseling worked for them.
There are numerous agencies and organizations that provide marriage counseling services in New Mexico. Men and women having marital difficulties may attend counseling sessions together and/or separately to work on issues that may be contributing to the deterioration of the marriage.
