Every marriage deserves an optimistic, competent marriage counselor who won't give up on their marriage.
Marriage in todays society is hard in part because we have not taken the best of traditional marital wisdom and incorporated it into modern views of gender, religion, equality and marriage as an updated, still vital and important institution.
A lot of marriage information online assumes both people are equally in agreement about the problems and solutions. This is rarely the case. Thus, information often backfires and professionals end up seeming unhelpful which lowers the trust people place in them.
