The Online World of Relationship Advice
Finding Relationship Advice Online
The short answer is yes.
The long answer is “maybe” because you have to really look for it and be committed to sifting through a LOT of mediocre information to find it (such is life in today’s world).
But here are some ways to make the task faster and easier.
Start by searching for the words “relationship advice” or “marriage advice” using your favorite search engine. (Here’s a tip, enclose the words in quotes to get targeted results.)
Prepare to be bombarded by the millions of sites on relationship advice. But here is the upside to this process. Your eyes will be opened to information that you might not otherwise knew existed.
For example, if your spouse is an alcoholic, you will likely find information on support groups in your area.
But here’s the deal. Before you can trust relationship advice from the Internet, you must first verify that the information is from a reliable source. Look for articles that are written by people who are authorities in the field of marriage and relationship advice. Finding reliable relationship advice online is similar to making an online purchase – you must be a smart consumer to avoid being mislead.
Be careful with “online marriage counselors” who ask you to spend money on products or services that are “guaranteed” to save your marriage. Do your due diligence by taking a few minutes to research the company or individual that is making these promises.
If the person claims to be a practicing marriage counselor in a certain state, make an effort to verify his or her qualifications and licenses. If you are having marriage problems, then the last thing you need is to make the relationship worse by taking advice from an unqualified counselor.
If you can, identify any relationship problems that you are facing and then search online for specific answers to those relationship problems. For example, if you are suffering from domestic, alcohol or drug abuse, the Internet is a great place to find help.
In fact you can find online relationship advice on just about any marriage problem you can think of. Just be careful and use good sense.
As we all know, knowledge is power. So take advantage of as much good relationship advice as you can find online. Doing so allows you to work through your relationship problems successfully to save your marriage and restore the vibrant love that you long to share with your spouse.
