What a Marriage Therapist Really Thinks — Six Thoughts.

 Therapist (women on couch)

Good article about the thinking of a marriage therapist who has practiced over 40 years. Some observations by him:

  • He emphasizes what each person contributes to the marriage;
  • Takes time to determine if a marriage will last;
  • Big mistake to gang up on someone;
  • I do give “homework” especially to increase intimacy;
  • I can tell if therapy is working if they are making progress in their relationship. Then I ask them.
  • Two or three chronic problems don’t ever go away.  Learn to live with them.

Sounds like good conclusions after forty years.Seems very basic. But they are also true.
