    Cool What Your Marriage Counselor Doesn't Want You To Know

    • Sixty-nine percent of all arguments between you and your partner will never be resolved. So don’t try so hard.
    • A couple that doesn’t fight is in trouble.
    • Having a “good enough” marriage is the most couples can expect and is actually quite an accomplishment.
    • Letting go is sometimes better than discussing everything to death.
    • Respect, not sex or money, is the most important factor in a happy marriage.
    • There are marital breaches worse than an affair.
    • A therapist cannot teach, train, or guide you to “be happy.” That is not a reasonable outcome to expect from therapy.

    Re: What Your Marriage Counselor Doesn't Want You To Know

    I think it depends on how you define "good enough"

    Also what breach is worse than an affair?

    I can think of several. For instance, would you rather have your spouse rack up $500k in debt under both of your names without your knowledge or bang some dude?

    Excellent reply. I'd say you nailed one of the situations

    Not to poke holes in your argument but I would hope somebody would have enough sense stop that much debt from happening.

    But I guess ruining someone's reputation could be a lot worse as getting another job may become more difficult.

    The other thing marriage counselors won't tell you (or advertise anyway) is that the counseling will typically end as soon as the counselor agrees with man.
