(Cincinnati, OH) According to the Centers for Disease Control, the divorce rate in 2014 came in at 3.2 per 1,000 population, with the District of Columbia and 44 states reporting. Surprisingly, this figure is lower than any seen since 2000, although it does exclude data for California, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana and Minnesota. Individuals contemplating divorce often find they wish to attempt to save their marriage before taking this drastic step, and Counseling in Hyde Park, Ohio may be of help.
"There is less stigma associated with Cincinnati marriage counseling now, and individuals are realizing the far reaching effects of divorce, not only on themselves, but on their children. These two factors help to explain why many now choose to take this action before moving forward with divorce proceedings, and it helps numerous couples stay together. In fact, Guide Doc reports 97 percent of couples surveyed reported they obtained the help they needed, with 93 percent stating they learned more effective tools for dealing with issues within the marriage," Sam Nabil, founder of Naya Clinics, reports.
The Census Bureau in 2011 reported that married couples between the ages of 55 and 64 had a median net worth of $240,000, which was approximately four times that of individuals who were not married. Although this does not imply that every married couple will be lifted out of poverty, as 28 million Americans who were married with children still lived in poverty in 2013, it does significantly decrease the odds.
The problem is that there has been a rise in poverty overall in America, not simply in single family homes. "Couples need to find ways to stay together to improve their future. All too often, people assume the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, only to find it isn't once the divorce is finalized.
This is true not only for those with children, but for those who are childless. There's no one to come home to at night when you've had a bad day at work, there isn't someone to rely on if you become ill and friends often have their own lives and relationships and gaps and can't fill roles such as this.
This doesn't mean, however, that someone should stay in an abusive relationship. Counseling cannot work for everyone, and this needs to be remembered also," Nabil continues. The key lies in knowing when counseling may be of help. There are reasons two people fall in love, yet experience difficulties in their relationship.
In many cases, it's a matter of a breakdown in communication, as couples are working, raising a family and dealing with other aspects of life. They forget to make time for each other and the relationship disintegrates.
For others, financial difficulties come into play or it may be a case of infidelity. "Regardless of where the problem lies, many relationships can be saved. For those that cannot, counseling may still be of help, allowing each partner to move forward with less emotional baggage.
For those with children, counseling can help to reduce future conflict, allowing the children to grow up with two parents who are able to communicate without fighting to determine the best interests of the children.
I work with many couples who are struggling and find that counseling benefits almost all immensely. Contact me today so we can begin this process of trying to save your marriage," Nabil states.
