Have any of you ever been to marriage/couples counseling? I think DH and I need to go. We have been married for 6 years and have a 2 year old alhamdullilah. Most of the times, we are ok. But sometimes we really feel like we don't like each other. We do not communicate very well, and we both know we need to work on that. We live in a small community. I feel we should go to a professional outside of Islam. I think we can take the tools they give us and work them islamically. There is really not an imam we can talk to. We have one here, and DH spoke with him about some issues with his parents. There was no resolution there. It's not that one of us wants an Imam and one doesn't. That's not the issue. I am just interested to see if anyone has gone to counseling. Honestly, I think DH suffers from depression. He just gets in the worst moods and it's like he "goes into himself". He won't talk, or gives me 1 answer replies, he keeps a scowl on his face, gets mad at the smallest things. When we're good and all in a good mood, everything is perfect. He adores our son and is SO good with him alhamdullilah. But when he's in a bad mood, it puts me in a bad mood too. Even if I come home happy, it changes my mood. I don't know how to just carry on with my good mood when there is a black cloud in the house. Any suggestions?
