“I’m frustrated with you, our marriage, and us. I’ve been looking through the yellow pages for a divorce lawyer.”
I was taken aback. I had no idea that there was anything wrong with us. As I caught my breath and tears filled my eyes I wondered if I could save my marriage.
In your marriage there may have been a moment in time, or a specific reason that has caused your spouse to want a divorce.
It could have been:
An emotional or physical affair
Continued fighting and conflict
Being separated due to work, ailing parents, or personal choice
Mental or behavioral issues
Pornography, alcohol, or drug abuse
You now find yourselves creeping to the edge of divorce when there is little to no:
And physical/sexual intimacy in your marriage any longer.
If your marriage is at this point you may be asking yourself, “what can I do?”
You have two choices at this moment when your spouse wants a divorce. You can choose to be angry, or you can take responsibility for your actions and feelings.
You can decide how you will react to the situation. You may not be able to control the situation or your spouse, but you do have control over your words and actions.
This is your opportunity to look at the person you see in the mirror and make a change.
Do you want to foster change in your marriage?
