falling apart

Marriage therapy- When do couples need it?

Outside help is extremely important to get a marriage back on track. Irrespective of the differences between partners in a marriage, couple counselling is extremely important to mend the growing gap between the partners in a marriage. As an outcome, couples start spending more time analyzing where they are going wrong and they make the necessary corrections.

There are a few indications that point towards a marriage falling apart. Here we discuss a few such signs.


The top reason for many marriages falling apart is money. There can be a serious disagreement over finances in a marriage that does irreparable damage. In situations like these, a third party like a therapist can intervene and resolve matters.

Raising kids 

Kids are an important part of a couple’s life. Parenting is a full time job and it can be quite stressful for both the partners. Even the happiest of marriages can have stress when bringing up children. Both the partners are two different individuals who have been brought up differently. They have different parenting styles that they believe in. This can lead to indifference between partners too.


No matter what the reason is for a marriage to become stressful, couple therapy can help both partners in learning different ways to deal with it. It may be dangerous for couples to just try and co-exist and not bring up issues too because it leads to emotional detachment which is also a big reason for divorces today.
