These days, couples are more open to the idea of counseling.  Years back, they are more traditional and would rather make use of the old fashion ways of resolving relationship problems.  There were a lot of marriages lasting 30 or 40 years already that have ended in divorce.  Who knows, counseling might have helped them restore their relationship and might have kept their marriage intact. 

If you believe that your relationship can be helped by counseling, your partner should be convinced as well that this could work out. 

You should not broach the idea of counseling to your partner while hinting that he/she is the problem that is why counseling is necessary for surely they will view the suggestion in a negative light.  If you have to, then you can tell your partner that, more than anything else, it is for you. 

If you are able to convince your partner that you need to sort out some issues and that you hope to become a better, more understanding partner after the session then they might agree to that.  Even if you believe that the root of the problem is your partner, you should not explicitly say so.
