Marriage counseling is very simialr to couples therapy but there can be some issues more specific to marriage counseling. For some couples, their first role models of how a relationship works goes back to what they witnessed with their parents and back to their family of origin. Parenents and caregives are our first role modesl and many times couples find themselves unconsiously recreating the same behaviors they wintessed in their childhoods. Sometimes these unhealthy behaviors are toxice and not as strongly brought out until after the couple marries.
Compounded with work, in law issues, continuing education, issues of money managment, time managment, division of the roles and chores in relation to children can be very stressful to a married couple. For some people it was less stressful to be in a committed dating relationship that being in an official marriage. Issues of parenting style, religious affiliation upbringing, and lack of time being together as a couple can create intense stress.
The institution of marriage can create unique problems, even when the couple has a strong desire to remain married. Issues can arise with trust, jealousy, substance abuse, gaslighting, and infidelity which adds more stress to the marriage.
With same sex couples, new issues can arise that never occured when dating or living together.
