Everyday, an average of 56 couples receive a divorce in Colorado. That’s a little more than half of the average number of daily marriages in Colorado – 96. As a Colorado divorce law firm with more than 50 years of experience, we’ve been able to help couples that are dealing with difficult marriages get the divorces they need. However, in almost every circumstance, our divorce lawyers recommend seeking out marriage counseling before seeking out a divorce law firm.
The Benefits of Marriage Counseling
Marriage is a valuable institution that our very culture has been built upon. Whenever we can preserve this institution we should – even if it seems to be a tremendous challenge. Hopefully, you and your spouse have already attended some marriage counseling sessions or are at least considering counseling as an option. Here are a few reasons you should think about counseling:
- Marriage counseling opens up avenues of communication that you may have previously been blind to. If you think you really know your spouse, marriage counseling will almost certainly reveal some new information to you – especially about how your spouse communicates. We can’t tell you how many clients we’ve heard this from.
- Counseling brings an objective third party into your relationship. Marriage can be a very private experience, almost painfully so. When you let a professional enter your marriage under confidence, you might find that the issues you’re struggling through aren’t as challenging as you perceive them to be.
- Lastly, a good marriage counselor will help you find solutions to real, tangible problems. Many people are under the false impression that marriage counseling is just esoteric, idealistic talk. On the contrary, great marriage counselors help provide very real and immediate solutions!
