Marital Therapy

  • Marriages are very fragile by nature. It requires a great deal of understanding and commitment to make it work. But in the modern times, no one seems to be prepared to give their best in marriages. As long as a marriage is working fine, there is no worry; but the moment a crisis sets in, the whole system bares its internal instabilities. A marriage then becomes a war between two people. Once conflicts erupt, the whole marriage increasingly becomes unstable. This is a situation when either there is a relationship stalemate or constant fights over issues which become more and more complicated owing to accusations, counter-accusations and lack of conflict resolution. At this juncture a warring couple needs professional help to save their marriage. This is precisely where the importance and necessity of marital therapy come into play.
  • Marital Therapy is for those couples who are having major problems in the marriage.
