Recent research suggests that the average person receiving marital therapy is significantly better off than 84% of those who don't seek treatment, and that treatment gains are generally sustained over time. In fact, the effect size (a statistic that essentially says how well some method of treatment works) for marital therapy is higher than the effect size for coronary bypass surgery for angina! In other words, if you get quality marriage counseling, your marriage has a better chance of succeeding than your angina has of being treated successfully through coronary bypass surgery!
