My Spouse Is Refusing Professional Help! What Can I Do? 

Statement of Faith

We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. As such He created them different so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. Therefore, we perform and mentor marriages in accordance with Biblical guidelines. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; John 4:16-18; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11. 6:18-20, 7:1-3 and 7:8-9; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-7; 1 Timothy 1:9-11)

Dear Friend,

It’s hard to admit when we need help. And it’s especially
hard when we see our spouse struggling with problems they won’t admit to.

All of us have times when we’d benefit from professional help, whether
we’re dealing with life changes, mild depression, or even battling
addiction. There are hundreds of situations that can warrant counseling
or therapy, but what happens when your spouse
refuses to get help
? Is there anything you can do?

Today on the
we’re sharing some things you can do to gently guide your spouse toward
getting help. While you can’t force anyone into counseling or therapy,
you can be a positive influence for change in your marriage.

See you on the blog,
