More women are seeking online marriage counsel to help them get married, according to a report.
In Canada, a survey released in March found that two-thirds of respondents who were looking for a marriage counselor said they had tried online counseling.
The report by the Canadian Association of Marriage Counselors (CAMC) also found that a significant proportion of women have tried to get online marriage counselors to help in their marriage counseling and that many had been unsuccessful.
“Online marriage counseling is often a one-way ticket to marriage counseling,” the report states.
“For many women, it can be a one day visit that is followed by another one.
This is not the best solution for those women seeking the support they need.”CAMCs survey also found there is a growing number of online couples counseling programs.
More than a third of women in the survey said they were either seeking a marriage counseling program, or that they were looking to start one.
The CAMC also found an increase in online couples counselling programs in Canada, with an increase of 6.4 per cent over the previous year.
