Tried everything but still unsuccessful in making your marriage work? Well, don't sweat it, for help is at hand, or in this case just two clicks away.

A computerized program called eHarmony Marriage has been launched, which seeks to help couples communicate better, rekindle romance, and resolve conflicts more compassionately.

According to The Christian Science Monitor, the US site is an offshoot of the Internet matchmaking service, eHarmony.com.

Les Parrott, creator of the program with his wife, Leslie, a marriage and family therapist says that the 'online counseling service' is perfect for people not quite ready for face-to-face counseling, who want to do something practical to improve their relationship, reports Courier Mail.

The counseling session begins with a 40-minute online questionnaire covering everything from finances to housework, trust, family relationships, and spirituality.

Each partner answers separately. A report is generated outlining their strengths and weaknesses as a couple. For instance: You do really well in communication until you get to the in-laws.

From that summary, the computer produces an action plan that includes interactive video exercises, articles, and resources.

Couples pay 150 dollars for the program, which takes six to eight weeks to complete.

Women tend to be the first to seek counseling, Parrott says. Men tend to be more oblivious to the problems. (ANI)
