For couples experiencing problems in their relationship, marriage counseling can help the couple learn better communication skills and work through existing issues. While marriage counseling must be accompanied by the effort put forth outside of sessions to be truly successful, a 2011 study by the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy found that couple therapy had a positive impact on 70 percent of couples.

If an individual in the relationship is living with a mental illness, it can also be beneficial for the relationship if the person seeks treatment for their condition. One study looking at the effects of mental disorders on marriage and divorce found that all of the 18 tested mental disorders have a positive association with divorce and 14 out of 18 are associated with a lower likelihood of ever marrying. The three disorders with the highest risk of both divorce and never marrying were specific phobia, major depression, and alcohol abuse.
