Divorce may be unavoidable even following marital counseling

When a couple's marriage is on the rocks in Florida, marital therapy may be a viable solution. Marriage therapists strive to help their clients to develop a better understanding of one another's needs. If the two spouses still cannot get along, however, divorce may be inevitable.

The average married couple that chooses to participate in marital counseling have been having issues for around six years. Given this lag time, the relationship is usually already in serious trouble when the two spouses get to the therapy office. After all, they have harbored hurt feelings and endured infighting as well as negative interactions for years. However, they may still try to make an effort to save the marriage.

In other situations, the two spouses may already recognize that the marriage is essentially over. They simply go to a therapist for help with untangling their lives and planning how their relationship will look following divorce. Their goal in this situation is to break up in a manner that will be healthiest for their family long term, particularly when children are in the picture.

In Florida and elsewhere, divorce can understandably be challenging even when a marriage ends in a rather amicable way. However, a couple can feel more in control of the divorce process by resolving their divorce issues, such as asset division, through negotiation versus conventional litigation. With litigation, a judge will end up determining how the unresolved issues will be decided, and the outcome might not be in line with the expectations and wishes of either party.
