13 Couples Who Went To Marriage Counselors Over The Weirdest, Pettiest, Or Silliest Things

And finally, as a bonus, this reminder:

“I’m not a marriage counselor, but I’m in school to be a mental health counselor at the moment. My professor has worked in the field for over 30 years, and we asked him this question at one point. He answered something like this:

There is no ‘stupid’ reason to seek out counseling. What may seem trivial to one person can completely consume another person. What may seem insignificant to you might just be the last straw for a client. It’s our job to figure out why that ‘stupid’ reason caused them to land in your care. Sometimes it’s a lot of minor things that built up because they don’t have any good coping mechanisms. Sometimes it’s a major problem that they don’t want to talk about, so they start small. Sometimes it’s something they don’t even realize is a problem, but is causing them distress regardless. There’s a lot of reasons why clients might present you with something that seems completely insignificant, but the fact is, they are in front of you, paying you money, so that you can help them improve their mental health. Ninety-nine percent of the time, that means that they believe getting help is worth their time and money.”
