15 Women Share the Moment They Knew They Needed Marriage Counseling


As anyone who has been married for longer than 20 minutes knows, being in a long-term relationship definitely has ups and downs. Being with one person every day for years can be stressful -- even before adding kids into the mix. Full disclosure: I am totally pro couples counseling and think most people would benefit from talking to a therapist at some point in their life.
