New research shows that, when couples are seriously considering separation or divorce, doing the work on their relationship through counseling can help most. After 5 years and sincerely focusing on improving their relationship, only 12% actually get a divorce. And, 75% of the couples are now happy or very happy.
One of my favorite things is doing marriage or relationship counseling. We do know how to help in very practical ways. And so much of my counseling work with couples is pure mentoring with personality, communication and emotional intelligence skills.
