Counseling helps couples address their disagreements in an appropriate manner. It can also teach various problem-solving skills, such as anger management, stress management and conflict management.

Counseling can also help increase a couple’s emotional and physical intimacy. Sexual issues in a couple’s married life are reason enough consider marriage counseling.
