Couples therapy isn't just a guilty pleasure reality show — it's a real life tool that really betters relationships and marriages every day. Countless couples flock to pre-marriage counseling and marriage therapy sessions both pre- and post-"I dos" to help them through specific problems or to just better their communication — even those of the celebrity set! Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are total advocates for couples therapy, crediting marriage counseling for strengthening their relationship. Recently, The Bachelor's Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell also shared that they attend couples counseling at their church. And now, rumors are swirling that one of the most famous celebrity duos in Hollywood — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West — are also going to couples therapy.
TBH, we'd need at the very least a very, very long vacation after the year that Kardashian and West just had. 2016 brought a horrifying armed robbery experience for Kardashian and then a scary hospitalization stint for her hubby. In our humble opinion, couples therapy could definitely be a beneficial tool to help this famous pair through all that trauma, if need be. And The Daily Mail reported that Kardashian and West were indeed attending counseling together. "They're actually doing better," a source divulged to the publication. "It was obviously a bit tough when everything went down and it was confusing with the stuff going on. But they're doing better now."
However, according to several other sources, the couples counseling rumors are just not true — although the pair is receiving help through separate therapy sessions. "They are still both receiving individual therapy," a source explained to People magazine. "Kim is dealing with the trauma from the robbery. Kanye is receiving help for depression and learning how to cope with stress better."
"They might be thinking about couples therapy, but so far it seems they haven't had any sessions together," the source added. Well, whatever these two decide to do, we honestly wish them the best. We truly want a Kardashian/West happily ever after, you guys! (Just imagine if that damn flower wall was all for nothing....)
