Subject: stbx making divorce a tough decision Posted: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 10:23:57
I moved out of the FH 4 months ago. Our marriage had been going downhill and I don’t want to go back. But my stbx keeps pestering me to come back and give our marriage another chance. I don’t know whether to trust him or not. We have tried to make it work but it didn’t. The only thing is that we didn’t try counselling because we could not afford it at the time things were going wrong because both of us were working long hours and also on weekends. Now, even though I don’t want to go back to him, I’m not sure if I will regret this decision later. Is it that anger and frustration is clouding my judgement? If he had agreed to divorce, it would be so much better because I that way won’t be feeling guilty about anything. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Even if the ultimate decision is to divorce relationship counseling can help communication at a difficult time and help the separate in a dignified manner. The cost of counseling is insignificant compared to loosing a marriage or the potential legal costs of a divorce court battle.
