Results You Can Expect From Personal Marriage Coaching

Individuals or couples who actively participate in Personal Marriage Coaching can expect many benefits. In addition to resolved problems, the following are some common results. Results vary based on how thorough the individual or couple participates in the coaching program. Honesty is essential in all communications and assessments. 


Your partner will shower you with more and meaningful affection, in the way you desire to have affection.


Your partner will be more willing to have sex. It will be more intimate and emotional.

Intimate Conversations

Your partner will be interested in talking with you, hearing what you have to say, and connect with you emotionally.

Respect and Admiration

Your partner will show you respect and give you honest and meaningful admiration.

Honesty and Openness

Your partner will not hide anything. A new level of honesty and openness will be freely given.

Recreational Support

Your partner will support you in your recreational hobbies and activities, either directly or indirectly.

"As a marriage coach, I solve marriage problems by educating and motivating individuals and couples to do what they may not want to do, but need to do, so they can have the marriage they desire." Mark Jala

Having a Happy Marriage 

The state of marriage today is not pretty. Divorce is between 40% to 50%, and more than 40% of couples say they are not happy. 

Did you know that the average couple looking to improve their marriage wait 6 or more years before getting marriage coaching or counseling? By that time, the pain and resentment is so ingrained into the relationship, it takes much longer and costs so much more to improve the marriage.

It doesn’t have to be this way. 

Let me tell you what it takes to have an AWESOME marriage.  

  • It takes a commitment to the marriage that goes beyond the altar, and is demonstrated with a little time every day
  • It takes a deep level of understanding of exactly who you are and who your spouse is. 
  • It takes current knowledge of what makes a marriage work and what makes a marriage fail. 
  • It takes putting that knowledge into action using proven strategies that, when followed, guides you through the most difficult of times. 
  • It takes motivation, either internal or external, that helps you envision the desired marriage you want and encourages you to take the necessary actions to make that marriage a reality. 

That is a tall order, but it has been done and it is being done by countless people who truly desire to make their marriage work. 

Happy Marriage

The Pain of Marriage Troubles

There are many causes of marriage problems. Whether they are minor, moderate, or serious problems, some combination of the following may exist in the marriage relationship:  

  • A partner may care more about themselves with little regard for the other partner. 
  • Partners may criticize one another with harsh and personal attacks. 
  • A partner may make selfish demands upon the other partner.
  • There is a lack of honesty and openness between the couple.
  • The couple acts independently of each other without regard for the partner.
  • A partner may develop annoying habits that angers the other partner.
  • Partners may show disrespect towards one another in private and in public.
  • Partners may have trouble talking with one another without one getting angry or defensive. 

Living With Marriage Problems

Couple Fight

Relationship problems are painful. There is a hurt that goes deep down to our core and makes it hard to breathe sometimes. When boundaries are crossed, trust is lost. You don’t know if you can believe what your partner is saying. Fear grips you and makes you have doubts about the future. 

You try to make things work by giving more. You’ve given so much you don’t know if you have anything left to give. 

You try to talk about the problems, but your partner doesn’t want to, perhaps even leaving the room. You often feel like a roommate with your partner instead of a spouse.

Why Personal Marriage Coaching Works

There are many reasons why Personal Marriage Coaching can help your marriage.

  • As a certified coach in Strategic Interventions, I aim to resolve the root causes of the problems, along with the problems that appear on the surface. This provides the best long-term results with a minimal chance of the problems recurring.
  • I take a holistic approach to coaching. True happiness extends beyong your marriage. As you go through the coaching program, you will learn how to be happier with yourself, your partner, your friends, and in life.  
  • Recommended actions are based on the best practices of top marriage experts like Dr. John Gottman, Dr. John Gray, Dr. Willard Harley, Jr., Cloe Madanes, Tony Robbins, Dr. Greg Baer, Dr. Emmerson Eggerichs, Dr. Gary Chapman, and more.

Through years of research, I compiled the recommendations of these top marriage experts, and found that their best practices fall into 6 categories. I call them the 6 Pillars of a Happy Marriage. Each month of coaching looks at your specific situation in light of one of the pillars. Personal Marriage Coaching follows this monthly schedule:

  • Pillar 1 helps you identify your most basic human needs and those of your partner. In the process we will discover many positive ways how each of you can have your most important needs met by each other, drawing you closer to one another, and reestablishing love bonds.
  • Pillar 2 addresses the core emotional needs of love, sex, and affection. You will learn how each of you want to receive love, where to go for the various forms of love, and how affection and sex are related, so you get more meaningful sex and affection.
  • Pillar 3 helps you understand one another from the perspective of gender differences, and how to turn this new understanding into powerful communication tools.
  • Pillar 4 addresses the principles of a happy marriage. With a new understanding of one another, these principles will take on a whole new and impactful meaning as you learn the principles that make a successful marriage.
  • Pillar 5 looks at the disrupters of a happy marriage. You will learn how to identify and minimize behaviors and attitudes that destroy a healthy and happy marriage. 
  • Pillar 6 focuses on the practice of constant improvement. You will learn how to self-direct your marriage on the path you desire with powerful tools and mindsets that help you navigate any future issues.

How Personal Marriage Coaching Works 

The Personal Coaching program is designed to last 6 months. By the end of the 6 months, you will have all the tools and strategies you need to self-direct your happy marriage into the future! 

If the need arises, clients can cancel remaing months at any time, for any reason during the 6 months. 

I work with individuals or couples.

There are 2 coaching sessions each month. Coaching sessions are 45 minutes long and conducted over the phone or with Skype video.

The program uses the 38 Minute Method, my own coaching framework to provide step-by-step instructions while measuring progress. 

  • Each month starts with a reading assignment of one or more blog posts. There is an essential exercise at the end of the post that leads you to take the actions necessary for your happy marriage. 
  • A beginning assessment asks the critical questions to help you assess exactly where you are in your marriage today, and starts to lay out what needs to happen in order for you to solve your marriage problems and live the marriage you desire.  
  • You book your two 45 minute coaching sessions. The first coaching session lays out the general strategy for the month and what actions each partner needs to take. The 2nd coaching session, a week or two after the first session, addresses the actions taken, successes, challenges, and makes adjustments to achieve the best results.
  • At the end of each month there is a short ending assessment that helps you to measure your progress, and evaluates the services I provide. Evaluation and measurement are vitally important. 

The Personal Marriage Coaching program is the most effective way to resolve your marriage issues and live a happy, long-term marriage.

My Goal for You (and What I Want)

My goal for you is to have a life-long marriage full of love, respect, and emotional connection. 

Sometimes I get asked why I do marriage coaching. The answer is simple – I care. I see what divorce does to couples and to children. When I coach, there are things that I want:  

  • I want you to have a whole new mind-blowing understanding of who you are and who your partner is. This understanding can be a game changer in your marriage. 
  • I want you to have an inner happiness that takes pressure off of the expectations of the marriage and your partner. 
  • I want to see you on the path where you can self-direct your marriage happiness and not need my services. 
  • I want you to have a marriage that is so awesome, it is so much better than anything you ever dreamed about.
