: : All I could suggest is counseling. It did work for my hubby and I and will work for anyone who goes with an open mind and both willing to work hard and do what the counselor recommends.
: you really shouldn't say that it "will work for anyone who goes in with an open mind". There are just some things in life that can not be repaired. I am so happy it worked for your marriage but sometime councling does not work no matter how hard you work at it.
I don't mean to be argumentive, but why don't you use a name even if it is not your real name but it sure would look better than just words like wait and how. Counseling does not work for people who don't put 100 percent of their part and are willing to work at it and listen to the counselor. I will give you some examples. Say the husband or wife has a spending problem, the counselor teaches them how to not fight about it and teaches how to budget. Say the husband says too many bad words, the counselor will give examples on what other words would have been more appropriate and so on and so on and so on.
