Even if you'd rather talk to a friend than a therapist for your own problems, it's good to have an uninterested third party when navigating your trickier relationship differences. Yet some couples go to counseling before the problems even start.
My friend and her boyfriend know they want to married, but they're seeing a psychologist once a week for couples counseling before they do anything binding. They want to hash out some differences and work on their communication. It seems like a smart idea to me, but my other friend sees it as a big red flag.
Would you see a couples counselor to ward off problems before they get too big?
