I just wanted to put it out there, for those who stumble upon this blog and read my bitching and moaning, casually mentioning our marriage counseling, yes, we go to a couples counselor, even though we are Newlyweds.
It’s something we talked about before we got married, while we were in a long distance relationship. We are two progressive people who both like to focus on self- improvement, and believe in constant learning. And isn’t it really a little foolish, perhaps a little ignorant, to enter a lifetime commitment to another human being, especially in our case, having only know each other for two years, without really knowing what to expect, not really having the tools developed by professionals, who are experts on communication and commitment?
We both agreed that learning how to communicate, and mold our daily lives, and cope with arguments in a better way, couldn’t be a bad thing, and it would more likely progress father with a third, neutral person, who also happens to be a expert on marriage. Why wait until things get seriously bad before acquiring help? Why not build our marriage on a strong , informed foundation?
