Welcome to the third part of our mini blog series on the benefits of Alabama marriage and family therapy and how a marriage and family therapist can help you and your spouse achieve harmony and happiness in your home. If you have missed either of the first two, you can find them here and here. One of the reasons that second marriages, especially those with kids from the first marriage, don’t succeed are because of the busyness of life.

How Family Struggles Affect a Marriage

The previous blogs in this series discussed family counseling and blended family counseling. However, the foundation of your family is you and your spouse. The stronger your marriage, the more successful you will be at parenting, co-parenting, and running things smoothly in your home.

Everyday family tasks, activities, and responsibilities can very easily divert family members into a robotic rushed rut where you are each running in every direction trying to check things off the list. Kids have practices and games. Parents have meetings, work, and social events. Kids have birthday parties and playdates. In the midst of all this, mom and dad need their alone time individually, as well as date nights and time for intimacy.

A full plate depletes your energy and increases stress. These two things alone are enough to create friction between a husband and a wife. Before you know it, tensions rise, bickering ensues, and you wonder how you got there. A marriage and family therapist is trained for just these situations and can help you and your spouse!
