Marital coaching is helpful for all couples and can enrich the relationship of those together for many years.  It is also useful for those preparing for marriage, especially a second or third marriage, who want to do everything they can to prevent problems and build a healthy relationship. In our society around two out of three first marriages are unsuccessful and three out of four second marriages fail. With couples coaching before and during a marriage you can do something to enrich your relationship and increase the odds of a long and loving relationship. No one goes into a marriage expecting to get a divorce so do not let it happen to you.
