Why "Hour-a-Week" Marriage Counseling is Ineffective For Marriages in Crisis

What if you had a critical medical condition which would require major surgery and critical care for 12-15 weeks?  Would the doctor have you come to his office for an hour “once-a-week” for 15-20 weeks until it was done?  Of course not! Why?  Because you'd need intensive care- and it's the same for troubled marriages in critical condition. That's why Cornerstone's one-of-a-kind, Intensive Marriage Counseling Retreat is so effective. We see it as "intensive care" for marriages. It allows for couples needing urgent care to heal their relationship over a 2-night/3-day, Marriage Intensive Weekend . Once this "major surgery" has been accomplished, couples are able to achieve a thorough and speedier …

What A New Beginning Marriage Renewal Retreat is NOT

It is NOT a "cookie-cutter" marriage enrichment seminar,  a "Do it Yourself" DVD production that you watch at home, nor a mere lecture-type seminar where you sit with a big crowd of people, take a lot of notes and then go home and try to do the work of repairing your relationship all on your own. Perhaps you've tried these, and still not found answers?  Don't give up hope... We can assure you; here at Cornerstone through our process you'll find caring, distinctively Christian marriage counseling help that's practical, biblical, proven … [Read More...]

Who Needs Marriage Counseling?

Unfortunately, we're not just born with the relationship skills and know-how to create a healthy, happy marriage. Relationship skills are learned, and most of the time the people we learned them from were usually our parents, who were likely lacking too. Consequently, along the way, most of us have have picked up some dysfunctional ways of relating that have become obstacles to building the healthy relationships we'd like to have. That is why marriage counseling can be effective and helpful- although, as you will see, marriage counseling is not effective for all marital situations. In fact for some, it can prove to be very detrimental.

     Developing and sustaining a healthy, happy marriage requires at least three tasks: (1) That a couple knows what a healthy marriage looks like, (2) That they possess the key skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to attain to it, and (3) That a couple identifies and deals with obstacles that may be blocking them from achieving the healthy, happy relationship they desire.

Fortunately these three tasks are learnable. Christian marriage counseling has proven effective in helping couples achieve success in these areas. Yet there are many otherwise knowledgeable husbands and wives who go their entire lives without ever realizing this.

Like many, they never learn how to overcome the unproductive attitudes and unhealthy behaviors within themselves that lead to mediocre relationships and unhealthy marriages. Many know they want something different in their marriage, but just don't know what is,  whether or not it's achievable, and if so - HOW to go about achieving it...more.
