Christian Relationship Counseling

Christian Marriage Counseling

Any couple struggling in their marriage should seek counseling sooner rather than later. Every marriage includes bumps and turns that if not handled correctly can create chasms too wide to bridge. Often, either from pride or shame, a couple does not seek help with issues early enough to save the marriage. They wait until so much damage has been inflicted that the marriage is already dead and the counselor has little to work with. Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety” (ESV). When we face battles too great to wage alone, wise people seek wise counsel.

Recurring issues in a marriage are like road signs warning of danger to come. Some of these road signs are:

  • 1. Inability to resolve conflict in a healthy way.
  • 2. One partner dominating the relationship so that the needs of the other are not met.
  • 3. Inability to compromise.
  • 4. Either partner stepping outside the marriage to “fix” the problems.
  • 5. Breakdown in communication.
  • 6. Confusion about the roles of each spouse in the marriage.
  • 7. Pornography.
  • 8. Deceit.
  • 9. Disagreement about parenting styles.
  • 10. Addictions.

When a couple recognizes any of these warning signs, it is wise to seek godly counsel. However, not all counsel that presents itself as “Christian” is based on the truth of God’s Word. Friends and family may mean well, but can offer unscriptural solutions that only confuse and make the problem worse. A counselor should be chosen based upon his or her philosophy and adherence to Scripture as the foundation for emotional health. Many horror stories have come from people who sought counsel from those they trusted, only to find “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (Matthew 7:15) who have excused sin and instructed the wronged spouse to “get over it.”
