Have you ever been ambivalent about divorcing their spouse? There may have been an event that took them over the line and brought them to your door, exploring divorce as the only option.
Yet, as you work with this person, and perhaps even with this couple, you start to see and hear a lot of “if only” and “what if?’ dot the conversations. They might have already tried marriage counseling, only to find themselves more at odds and hopeless than ever.
Now there is a program that originated out of Minnesota and targeting Couples on the Brink of divorce and separation. As is states in the website: “We are pioneering Discernment Counseling, a new way for couples to pause, take a breath, and look at their options. It’s different from traditional marriage counseling aimed at improving the marriage. We don’t assume that you both want to preserve the marriage, only that you are both willing to take a look at what’s happened to your marriage and decide whether to break up or to try to repair it.”
