This can ultimately improve other aspects of their marriage such as their honesty, trust, transparency, their sex life, and financial issues. Whether you and your partner are experiencing problems within your marriage or not, recruiting the support of a counselor to help guide conversations about difficult issues is both valuable and instrumental in a successful partnership
