Marriage counseling often covers the same concerns and difficulties encountered in premarital counseling. If spouses did not process and work through growth areas prior to marriage, an objective third person helping to work through the concerns is often necessary. Some marriages bump into new issues or need assistance during different stages in marriage. Sometimes marriages just need a "tune up".
We often spend thousands of hours and dollars in academia on our careers... in comparison we invest very little in our marriages!
Inventories are tools used in premarital counseling and marriage and family therapy sessions to assist couples with a more structured assessment of the relationship. Marriage is to be a loving and understanding relationship, where couples compliment one another with a sense of mutual respect. Couples therapy is well worth your time.
