Marriage counseling is supposed to help you get the love you want in your marriage. And, I'm sure you know, that means giving the kind of love your spouse wants to receive.
You didn't plan it this way when you got married. Nobody does. Most couples seek counseling when their needs and expectations are not being met.
One very important step is to take a look at your expectations, and see if you want to adjust any of those. Often, we inherit our expectations in marriage from our parents, and carry them forward unconsciously.
Here is your chance to be more consciously aware of what you want and why you want it, while solving your marriage problems and creating the love you desire in the present and going forward.
You certainly did not plan for or expect the problems you're having. But you did have some expectations, even though you may not be completely aware of them.
Let's take a look at some of those now. I'm thinking your expectations were some version of the following, consciously or unconsciously:
And then, there were some things you definitely did not expect. You didn't expect to drift apart, fight so much, or just feel distant from each other
You didn't expect to lose the passion, romance or sexual interest. You didn't expect the money problems, parenting issues or differences between you that have gotten so big.
You want to resolve your issues, to get back the love you lost...or maybe create the love you wanted and never had.
And that's where marriage counseling with Dr. DeFoore comes in.
