Most people long for intimacy, but not everyone finds it — even in marriage. That’s because many couples expect it just to happen the moment they say “I do.” However, intimacy, like anything in life that’s truly great, requires commitment, patience and a willingness to work. If you and your spouse long to know each other, and feel deeply known, the marriage enrichment program at Taylor Counseling Group is a service you won’t want to pass up.
Unlike traditional couples counseling, marital enrichment focuses on growth and having the best marriage possible. Participating in marriage enrichment services doesn’t mean there’s a problem in your relationship. These sessions allow you to focus on your marriage, on intimacy and on true closeness with this other human being you’ve chosen to spend your life with.

Who Needs Marriage Enrichment Services?
Marriage counseling is not something to be scared of. Yet, many couples fear seeking out professional services because they feel it will be telling the world there’s something wrong with their marriage. However, every marriage needs a little tune-up from time to time.
Life just seems to get busier and busier. Balancing life, work, the kids and your spouse is difficult. Ask yourself a few questions:
- Do you and your partner feel more like roommates than lovers?
- Do you feel your intimacy waning with each passing year?
- Do your kids, work, and the busyness of daily life take all your time and energy?
- Do you feel like you have little to no time or inclination for fun with your partner?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, marriage enrichment counseling could be the best thing for you and your spouse.
