Discerning When Your Marriage Can Be Saved: Part 1 of “When Your Marriage Is Not What You Want It to Be”
Even under the best of circumstances, marriage involves hard work, with highs and lows an expected part of the journey. Responsibilities of parenting create added stress even in the best of marriages. But what if your marriage is really not what you want it to be? What if you believe your marriage is on the brink of failure? This week’s guest, professor and marriage therapist Dr. Bill Doherty, has information and resources to help couples discern whether their marriage can be saved and to take steps to do so when possible. This is information that can make a difference for any couple with a troubled relationship – and for the children who so often bear the fallout. (This is the first in a 2-part series brought to you by Mom Enough’s supporting partner DivorceChoice.com.)
How do you think a couple can tell if their marriage can be saved? And what are things parents can do to protect their children from the stress of a shaky or unhappy marriage? Share your thoughts in the REPLY space below!
