How can talking with other people help my marriage?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Every marriage has its issues, but it's how you work through those issues that matters. When you run into trouble, ask for help! Go see a counselor or find a friend to confide in. Working through your issues with an outsider can help you see things from a new perspective. Sometimes just listening to how other couples have solved their problems can help you manage yours -- even if it's just learning from their mistakes!
