Have you come to the realization that your marriage problems are serious and your marriage needs help? The new problem you face is not knowing where to get that help. Lets talk about a few options that are available.
Seek advice from friends and/or family members-Who better to share you problems with, your friends and family know you and love you and they are easy to talk to. While this may be an easy option, it is not necessarily the best option.
You will more than likely rant and rave, or fall apart emotionally while discussing your marriage problems. In either case, your emotions will impact your listener, and will tend to make them have negative feelings toward your spouse. This is not what you want if you are trying to make your marriage work. Be happy that your friends and family are there for you, but don't share all the details of your problems with them.
Seek help from a marriage counselor. -This option works best if both parties are willing to go. While you can go to counseling by yourself, it will make it harder to help your marriage if only one of you is receiving counseling. Marriage counseling can help you resolve your conflicts and improve your marriage. You can learn better communication and problem solving skills.
The down side is talking about your problems with a counselor may not be easy. After all this is someone you don't know and you are expected to share very personal information with them. Counseling can also be very expensive.
Seek help from a marriage self help book. -This option works even if only one partner is willing. This option also allows you to keep your personal life, well, personal. You don't have to air your dirty laundry to anyone. It is also a very affordable option. You can find marriage help books online, in your local bookstores, or even free in your library.
Ultimately, your source of marriage help and advice will be a personal decision. Whatever you do, don't decide to do nothing. Your marriage needs help and the problems will not fix themselves.
