Second Marriage Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, CO

Second Marriage Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland and Windsor.

Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor offers second marriage counseling to improve the chances of second marriage success. The divorce rate following remarriage is significantly higher than it is for a first marriage. According to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology, 50 percent of first marriages, 67 percent of second marriages, and 74 percent of third marriages end in divorce. Whether you are considering getting married again, are already engaged, or are currently in a second (or third) marriage, we are here to help.

According to a 2002 study by the National Center for Health Statistics, 15 percent of second marriages end after three years. After five years, the rate of failure jumps to nearly 25 percent. Factors that impact whether a second marriage will succeed include a person’s age, whether they grew up in a two-parent family, whether they suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and whether they already had children at the time of remarriage. (If those children were unwanted, the probability of the second marriage ending is even higher.)

The chance of failure of the second marriage is:

  • Higher with lower family income
  • Higher for women without a high school education
  • Higher for women with no religious affiliation
  • Higher for women who had their first child before or during the first seven months of the first marriage as opposed to after seven months of marriage
  • Higher for women who are older than their husbands

What You Can Expect with Second Marriage Counseling

At Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, second marriage counseling will teach you how to develop the skills and behaviors that are needed for a happy, stable marriage as well as how to avoid the behaviors that lead to divorce. Our second marriage counseling approach is based on 35 years of research by marriage and parenting expert John Gottman, Ph.D. By studying the interactions of over 3,000 couples, Dr. Gottman has been able to predict whether a couple will have a successful, loving relationship with 93.6 percent accuracy. We believe his research offers significant insight to those who are considering marriage for a second (or third) time.

Very easy to arrange for a preliminary free consultation. Staff at Loveland office are friendly and professional. It is a safe and non-threatening place to talk and receive actionable advice and counseling for a wide range of personal issues. Sessions do cost a bit but are well worth it in the long run! I always take away a positive idea or action plan after each session with my Councellor. Highly recommended!!!!
