Can couples therapy help a marriage?

Yes, in some cases it can. However, both parties have to be open minded and work with the therapist. From talking to different people they say it's the male counterpart that is in denial and will go along for the sessions grudgingly and honestly belief it's the wife or girlfriend with the problem and not them! Some men feel attacked or feel they are weak if they have to seek out therapy of any kind. Most men have been brought up to stay strong, don't cry and figure out your own problems. Out of 5 friends (including myself with my first husband) therapy only worked for one couple. It's worth a try.
