Online Marriage Counseling

One effect of COVID-19 is the strain on partnerships. Couples are spending more time with each other, and there is a point where it can be too much. When the inevitable conflicts arrive, they can be difficult to navigate. Have you tried online couples counseling? What was your experience like?

It's harder than it sounds if you aren't both comfortable with the security of the platform.  We've tried with a counselor who uses Doxy.me (HIPAA compliant) and my husband still won't share everything he might otherwise.  At least he's upfront about it.

Thank you for sharing @rcglaze. I hadn't thought about hesitations due to security. I understand why your husband feels that way, and it is a good thing that he's upfront about it. Do you think you'll go to in-person couples counseling when it's safe to do so?

What with all the social distancing, isolation, and mask wearing lately, I wonder if an on line wedding would work.  That way you could have more guests (hence more presents).  Hmmmm, it wouldn’t be much of a honeymoon though!

That seems like a brilliant idea- the couple would have a huge range of the best counselors to choose from, all over the country, or the world! Thankfully we are not in need at the moment, but counseling has saved our marriage more than once in our 32 years of marriage. I highly recommend it. I'm teaching piano online and find that there are many advantages to online learning!
