Poll on Marriage Counseling
Since my wife and I have started seeing a counselor (trying to make that 8/10 marriage into a 9.8 out of 10), we have had various reactions from friends and family. Some think it’s a good idea for anyone, some are a little jealous, and some recoil with horror and try to make excuses for why we would need to do such a thing. “Surely it must be for your training, Adam.” Little does that third group know, we like going. We are actually regular people with regular problems, and don’t want to settle for anything less that pretty much amazing. Which is important because contrary to popular belief, people who have higher standards and expectations for their marriage have the best marriages, not the worst.
While I certainly don’t think everyone needs to go, even if they have the opportunity, it is a great resource, and I am curious why many of us don’t. Time for a poll!
For those voting “other,” feel free to leave a thought in the comments. 🙂
