Do You Need Couples Counseling?

Are you concerned about your relationship? Take our quiz and find out if you need couples therapy.

For some reason, it seems like practically everyone we know is in couples therapy these days. Could your relationship benefit from it? Jane Greer, a New York-based family and marriage therapist, told momlogic: "If you are regularly upset, or if your relationship woes are the predominant thing in your life and affect you on a day-to-day basis, you should seriously consider therapy."

Many people think they should wait until some relationship catastrophe (like cheating) occurs before seeking help -- but oftentimes by that point, it's already too late. If the fun is gone and you're less happy together than you once were, it may be time to hit the couch to hash it out. Greer feels "probably everyone could benefit from therapy" -- but if your partner is opposed to it, give it a three-month trial. "Tell him that you're willing to see if you can work things out on your own," she says. "If things don't get better in three months, make an agreement to go to therapy then."

Take our quiz and see if couples counseling is right for you:

Jane Greer is a family and marriage counselor in NY. She also hosts the radio show Dr. On Call.

In related news, one of the women who slept with Tiger Woods said he never talked about golf during sex. However, he did keep his head down and his left arm straight.
