LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
Four Things About Marriage Counseling That Will Blow Your Mind
By the time I was trying to find marriage counselors, things were pretty bad at our house.
I wasn’t looking for suggestions on how to improve a good thing; I was looking for ways to hold the marriage together before it self-destructed.
I remember knowing that we just couldn’t figure it out ourselves really helped me to be brave about deciding to go. It was more desperation than courage, actually.
Of course, marriage counseling didn’t turn out to be helpful for us, and since a study at UCLA showed that 75% of couples who got traditional behavioral marriage counseling were separated within a year, it probably hasn’t been the answer for you, either.
So it makes sense to look for an alternative.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about four things about marriage counseling that will blow your mind:
- I’ll share four ways you can tell if marriage counseling is actually helping or hurting your relationship.

She went from the brink of divorce to now enjoying a husband who puts his phone away so he can spend time with her and who clears the table after dinner. RoxAnne’s going to share exactly what she did so you too can revitalize your marriage.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week paints disagreements in black and white without leaving any room for compromise.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
