Marriage Counseling? Wait!
When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.”~Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Marriage Counseling: Call It What It Is!
Calling marriage counseling (divorce counseling) may seem harsh. Moreover, if you take an honest look at this therapy, it in essence, centers around the inner workings of women.
Their emotions, and how they feeeeeeeel! While trying to lay it all out on the table. In fact, to get in touch with her feminine side.
The problem? Men don't work in this way. Never have, and never will.
More important, trying to encourage us to get in touch with our sensitive feminine side, is malpractice.
I protest, leave us alone! We don't work this way. We are warriors. We are compelled to go out, and kill something, and bring it home.
We are problem solvers. We don't want to take centuries, to delve in, and talk about our so called feeelings!
Please, just tell us the problem. Furthermore, so we can devise a battle plan to take care of the actual issue.
Look, talking only works for a short time. Sure, everyone feels good after a good talk. But, in the near future, we realize nothing was solved.
Taking months, and years to solve problems in the end isn't productive.
It's time we focus more on motivating the primal instincts in men. The instincts the Father instilled in us, to protect, defend and serve.
"A Man Of Courage" can get behind this concept.
Sure, there's a place for marriage counseling. But, until therapists are more skilled at dealing with couple therapy, and the wants and needs of the husband. Christian marriage counseling, or marriage counseling period, should be our last resort as men. (If you have done as much as you can: namely read and research this blog, and still have Christian marriage counseling questions click here)
Not a popular view, but true. Ask any man worth his weight. And he'll tell you this same fact.

So, pull up your big chair. Light a cigar. Put your feet up. Pour yourself a soothing cup of coffee. Or grab a beer. Or maybe, pour yourself a smooth glass of cognac.
Embark on the adventure, of becoming the man God is calling you to be. And that my friend, must first start with; your marriage!
