couples counseling

My boyfriends wife passed away from cancer last year. We are taking things really slow and just going one day at a time. He told me today that he's looking for a therapist for himself to help him deal with everything that happened the last several years. I am 100% accepting of this and have been encouraging him to seek grief counseling.
But he said after he gets in a better place he would like to us attend counseling together and work on moving forward. I guess I dont really see the point... I told him if thats something he wants to do then we will talk about it when the time comes.
How would you feel about this?

He must feel as if you guys could use some help. Maybe with communication or just dealing with issues. I think it is great that he has asked for it and if it is important to him, you should go and take it seriously. They can be very helpful for any relationship.

I don't know. He was pretty vague and just said he thought it would be good if we went together for awhile. I had to go to work, so we didn't have a lot of time tk talk about it.

Whatever his reason, go. It means that he wants to share something with you or that he wants to work on your relationship, both are good things.

If it will make him happy, why not?

If its something he really wants us to do, I will. Guess I just dont understand why we would need it though. Shrug.
