Marriage Counseling Denver, CO
Marriage may not start out as great as some think
Marriage is much more than a perfect life with a house and a white picket fence somewhere that’s green. There is no guarantee that everything will go picture perfect after the reception. In many cases, there will be all forms of speed bumps in the road even starting as the runaway couple hitches a ride on a bus. Marriage is not just a blessed arrangement that brings people together or a dream within a dream, but a journey with ups, downs and multiple chances for arguments along the way.
Nothing starts out perfect
For anyone who worries that his or her relationship is not healthy and feels embarrassment at it, there is no reason to be embarrassed. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC finds that in 2014 there were over 2 million marriages, the CDC also finds that there was a 3.2 percent divorce rate per 1,000 population. A relationship with tension and other speed bumps is not uncommon or something that needs to end.
Each situation is unique and does not have a single solution to make everything better. However, the couple can begin marriage counseling to explore what went wrong and how to re-develop a relationship that is long-lasting. Couples who feel frustration in their relationships and do not feel the same closeness they used to have will greatly benefit from professional help.
In many cases, couples who are experiencing disagreements in marriage may believe the myth that the first year of marriage or the honeymoon phase is the best year they will ever have together. This is not only false but is the opposite of the truth. A 2012 survey from the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index, available on australianunity.com.au, finds that “people married for less than a year have lower levels of wellbeing than people in any other year of marriage.”
With these results, it was found that “Satisfaction with life bounces back in the second year of marriage and is maintained at a high level throughout the length of the relationship, whether for four years or 40.” For couples who are struggling in their marriage, counseling will be an effective way to help work toward a happier and healthier relationship.

At Flourish Counseling and Coaching, we offer an exclusive curriculum program to help couples reach a better relationship through marriage counseling. The program teaches couples how to improve their:
The program has clients use the time in-between sessions to work on assignments and watch brief educational videos on strengths and deficits of the relationship. For marriage counseling, it is important that both partners are willing to receive treatment. When a couple runs down the aisle, life together may seem so simple and bright. However, the couple begins to realize that life will always have complications and that relationships will not be perfect bliss for life.
A married couple may find that each day, they fall into the same harmful patterns and disagreements that neither of them wants. Attempting to work through these struggles on one’s own or by merely calling a friend may not remedy the situation, but only abate the symptoms for a bit. With this in mind, marriage counseling at Flourish Counseling and Coaching will lead to a better relationship.
