GW,
I HAVE TO SAY I AM ONLY A LAYPERSON BUT AS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH SOME MARRIAGE COUNSELING I CAN GIVE YOU SOME CLUES AS TO WHAT ATTRIBUTES TO LOOK FOR. FIRST, DON'T LISTEN TO THEM IF THEY SEEM TO FOCUS ONLY ON "SELF" (WHAT CAN I GET FROM THIS RELATIONSHIP?). I HAVE LEARNED THAT THE LESS I FOCUS ON HOW I HAVE BEEN WRONGED AND MORE ON WHAT I CAN DO TO MAKE THINGS BETTER, THE MORE MY HUSBAND DESIRES TO CHANGE. SECOND, WITH THE EXCEPTTIONS OF ABUSIVE OR ADULTEROUS SITUATIONS, BEWARE OF COUNSELORS WHO RECCOMEND SEPERATION OR DIVORCE. AS WE ALL KNOW, LOVE IS STRONGEST WHEN TESTED AND TRIED AND PROVEN TO BE TRUE. THIRD, THE BIBLE HAS BEEN A REAL HELP TO MY HUSBAND AND I. IT TEACHES US WHAT NO COUNSELOR EVER COULD. CHECK OUT CHAPTER 13 OF 1 CORINTHIANS,WOW THAT WILL MAKE YOU THINK! SO THAT'S MY OPINION , TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.

During the first few years, my mate and I went to several with no success.
Between my husband and my self with all of the issues at hand, I really wonder if they know what they are doing. So many of our problems stemmed from so many different agendas.
You cannot look at who is right or wrong. You must be focused on committment, both of you.
I think of all the approaches and complications that we endured, the best I have found is Phil McGraws book Relational Rescue, it is a work book for you to look at you in the relationship, not the other person.
I also highly recommend physicals, and a review of medication and side effects, as well as identifying the issue, or issues. Adultry, abuse, are difficult. Communication techniques are at the root of most marriage issues and often the third party can help. Having done the right planning in the beginning as well, and all the consequences from not having a good marriage foundation usually catches up , its hard to re focus.b
