    Default Marriage Counseling. Did It Work For You?

    Have you had relationship problems? Did marriage counseling save your marriage or did it make it worse?

    There are now around 200,000 divorced people in this country - Increase in number of divorced people - Census - RT News

    That's a massive increase of 22.3% over last five years. This would indicate that marriage counseling is not very effective. In fact there are those who think marriage counseling does more harm than good.

    I blame the gays. Those ba$tards are destroying marriage.

    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    I'm not being smug, but we didn't need it - yes there have been rocky roads - but we used to hire a babysitter, go to a really quiet corner in a pub and chat, talking is good.

    Now, a different story would have been, a third party involved, that would have ended it and no amount of counselling would have worked.

    I thought you were going to reveal a wholly inappropriate secret to a good marriage there, Rural

    Cry your hardest now, it opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes and softens down the temper. So cry away.

    No, it failed dismally. We're still married.

    You got it in one there, by the time a third person is needed to communicate....well... not good.

    Experience is a great teacher.
