Counseling or Divorce: What's Better for You?

You may think that the best option is to get a divorce to completely severe marital ties with your spouse, however, you need to also consider marriage counseling before finally deciding to end the marriage.

Decision-making is one of the complicated things that you have to make in life. It is difficult to choose between two options especially if selecting one would entirely change your life. Take for example the hardship you have to go through in choosing between “staying in the marriage” or “getting a divorce.” There are times when you may feel that your relationship with your spouse is no longer helping the two of you. During these moments, you may think that the best option is to get a divorce to finally severe the marital ties. However, you need to also consider marriage counseling before deciding to end the marriage.

The question now is: Which between counseling and divorce is the better option? To be honest, only you can answer this. There are many factors that you have to consider in order to come up with the best decision. Evaluate the relationship by pinpointing the possible causes of the problems in the marriage. Look into the circumstances that have affected your relationship with your husband and wife. Most importantly, you need to know how long were you experiencing the marital problems. At the end of the process, you should be able to identify whether or not the marriage is beyond redemption. During this time, you can also talk to some of your friends and relatives. Ask for their opinion about the current situation.

Nevertheless, you need to remind yourself that their comments about your relationship should not dictate your decision. Use their opinions as guides to determine if the marriage is still worth saving. If you are serious about the decision-making, you can also talk to a psychologist who can assess your mood. This same professional may also refer you to a marriage counselor should you choose to save the broken and problematic relationship.

In case you opt to get a divorce, your next step should be to choose the right family attorney. Do not take this important step for granted. A good attorney can help you prosecute the case against your partner. He or she will also help you come up with demands that will leave you and your children on the winning end. The lawyer that you will choose must be knowledgeable about the applicable laws in your situation. Moreover, this legal professional must have the capacity to listen to all your concerns – whether it involves the legal matters of the case or your personal issues concerning the divorce.
