Couples Counseling

We’ve all seen the movies, right? That great date-night film that ends with the couple getting married as the screen fades to black and up comes that saying, “And they lived happily ever after.”

It’s a convenient way to end a movie, but marriage doesn’t work like that does it? After the wedding is when the real problems come out, right?

Many of us get married secretly thinking that marriage will solve whatever problems we have, and still others of us get married thinking that marriage will solve the problems our partner has. As the months and years tick by, we often discover that this is not the case. In fact, we learn that marriage did not solve any problems, but instead took whatever problems either of us had and put them on steroids. Sometimes we start to fear that what we thought was “happily ever after,” has taken a turn for, “happily never after.”

Maybe people told you that marriage takes work and, like me, you blew that advice off thinking that they just weren’t as in love as you are with your partner. But now you have discovered the stark reality that marriage really does take a concerted effort. Now you’re ready to work, but don’t know how. Maybe you’re at a point where you’re trying to decide if you want to do the work or not.

No matter how dark your situation, we are here to help shed some light and help you both plot a plan forward. We can help whether the problem is as serious as infidelity or addiction, or if you are in the enviable position of doing regular relationship maintenance to reduce the chances of a more serious problem later.

At Insights, we offer couples counseling in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere. We nearly wrecked our marriages beyond the point of repair, but through recovery, counseling and a lot of work, have entered the marriages we thought we were saying yes to when we started. It is possible, but it does not come without doing the work. We can help!

If you would like to schedule an appointment, or a free 15 minute consultation call, give us a call at 205.903.6282, or email us by filling out the contact form. Happily ever after is actually possible!
