What Your Marriage Counselor Doesn’t Want You to Know

  • by Reader's Digest Magazine, on Mon Oct 17, 2011 7:11am PDT

  • If you knew these things, you wouldn’t need a marriage counselor, would you? This insider info comes from psychologist Karen Sherman and from psychotherapist Wendy Allen, Ph.D., author of How to Survive the Crisis of an Affair.
    • Sixty-nine percent of all arguments between you and your partner will never be resolved. So don’t try so hard.
    • A couple that doesn’t fight is in trouble.
    • Having a “good enough” marriage is the most couples can expect and is actually quite an accomplishment.
    • Letting go is sometimes better than discussing everything to death.
    • Respect, not sex or money, is the most important factor in a happy marriage.
    • There are marital breaches worse than an affair.
    • A therapist cannot teach, train, or guide you to “be happy.”That is not a reasonable outcome to expect from therapy.
