He said that you go in there, state your problems. The other person states theirs.
It’s then determined you can’t come together and it’s best if you separate…
Then you separate.
He asked me if I would like to go to couples counseling towards the end of the relationship. I told him I’d rather just break up if the result was already known. Why circle the drain for weeks or months or years, when you can flush?
I tend to agree with him, for the most part. If a couple can’t work something out between themselves, it’s rare that a third party would be able to help.
Do you know of a marriage saved by couples counseling? If not, why do you think it’s so ineffective?
