We live in a world where families can be split by wide distances. Mom may be at home with a couple of school age children. The eldest child may be away at college, and dad may be off working in some remote corner of the world. Long distance families are difficult to maintain although they are a little easier today compared to twenty years ago.
The Internet now enables families to be together, even though they may be separated by hundreds, or even thousands, of miles. The Internet doesn’t just provide a communication channel between two people, today’s technology allows people from all over the world to connect at the same time, much like an online business conference.
This technology has also been adopted by marriage counselors and is being used with great effect to help families deal with issues when they arise, rather than letting them fester for months until the family is together in the one room again. There are many marriages that have been saved because they have been able to come together and discuss their problems, all under the guidance of an online marriage counselor.
Distance is a problem, however, twenty years ago the closest two people got was an occasional snail mail letter or a telephone call. You can now see who your talking to, thanks to web cams. You can talk to them, thanks to online technology and companies such as Skype, and it can all be done simultaneously, much like the earlier chat windows.
If your relationship is suffering because of distance, it no longer has to. Online marriage counseling can now be just as effective no matter where any one lives.
