Every relationship can be a challenge, but military couples pose challenges that most people in a committed relationship don’t have to confront. Some of these challenges might include long distance relationships and regular separations. There is constant change and adapting when one or both spouses are in the military.
We’ve talked about when you should see a therapist for couples but with the special challenges of a relationship in the military (and with the military) here we talk about why you should see a marriage or therapy counselor for military couples.
So why is it so important to seek out a therapist for military couples?
First of all, don’t wait until things are difficult and tensions are mounting. Healthy people in healthy relationships often work on their union with the help of a licensed therapist.
Secondly, it’s important because divorce rates tend to be much higher for military couples. Divorce may be an option but with the support of a counselor this can be avoided. Divorce may feel easier but in reality, it’s not, especially if there are children involved.
