Discernment Counseling: What If Only One Spouse Wants to Divorce?
Are you leaning towards divorce but your spouse is not? Have you tried couple’s counseling but found that the pressure was all on you to change? Do you want a time-limited, non-adversarial way to help you and your spouse determine whether it is time to divorce? If so, you should look into discernment counseling.
Discernment counseling is a way for “mixed agenda” couples to determine what is next. Mixed agenda refers to the frequent scenario where one spouse is leaning out of the marriage and the other is leaning in. The couple comes together with a counselor to talk and determine whether they want to repair their marriage or divorce.
