The fundamentals of a healthy marriage are love, trust, friendship, and communication. If a couple finds themselves fighting over small, seemingly unimportant issues, it’s likely a sign of a much deeper problem with the relationship. Before any couple decides to file for divorce, they should identify the strengths and weaknesses in their relationship and work to restoring the fundamentals of a healthy marriage.
Professional counseling can help a couple decide whether or not divorce is the appropriate option, especially if children are involved. As this video explains, trial separation is also a good way for couples to consider the strengths and weaknesses of their relationship. Marriage is an investment, so it’s important to be certain when it comes to ending the marriage and pursuing separate lives.
