Marriage Counseling can be a good idea as long as both spouses are willing to go to the marriage counseling and are willing to try and work out the marriage.
Marriage Counseling doesn't work for every marriage but if you're both willing to work on things and possibly save the marriage and you really want to stay with each other then yes sometimes marriage counseling can help.
However sometimes marriage counseling may make the marriage worse and still end in divorce.
But it's sometimes worth the try of going to marriage counseling if you really think it's best to stay together.
If you just have to have marriage counseling and you have no mental health condition and it's just because you're having trouble with your marriage and hoping to save it.
Then you'll have to pay out of pocket for the marriage counseling.
Most insurance will not pay for marriage counseling because it's not a medical necessary thing.
Marriage counseling can sometimes work and save your marriage but sometimes the marriage counseling may not work and the marriage counseling can sometimes make things worse.
If you really love each other and are really compatible with each other then you should be able to make your marriage last for a long time without any marriage counseling.
Marriage is a commitment and should not be taken lightly.
