I spoke earlier about how Lizze and I had our second marriage counseling session today. I’m really proud of us for taking this particular path at this particular time in our lives and I’m hoping to inspire others to do the same.
When people think of marriage counseling, I think there’s an assumption that there must be trouble in a marriage to seek this kind of counseling and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
The reality is that people go to marriage counseling for many different reasons and not all are related to marital problems.
Lizze and I went through a period of separation that ended this summer but that separation had very little to do with our marriage and a great deal more to do with caregiver burnout.
Since Lizze and I have reconciled, we have made the decision to pursue marriage counseling, even though our actual relationship is great.
