When both partners devote themselves fully and with proper help to restoring their marriage,

III. DISCERNMENT COUNSELING FOR COUPLES ON THE BRINK OF SEPARATION OR DIVORCE

  • Divorce is often an attempt to solve a problem that people think can’t be solved in any other way
  • When you as a couple are going through troubled times in your relationship, it can be very difficult for you to make the important life –changing decision about the future
  • What’s in your best interest?  There may also be children involved
  • The goal of discernment counseling is to help you as a couple gain clarity and confidence in deciding whether to try to preserve your marriage and make it better, or to take another path, such as a separation or divorce

This counseling is time-limited and is usually one to five sessions in length.
