Can this Marriage be Saved?
This question often centers on questions like:
- Can I forgive this hurt?
- Can we learn to communicate?
- Does he/she really love me?
- Will my partner quit abusing alcohol/porn/me?
Since there is no certain answer to this question, you can only ask:
- Do I have reasonable hope that my marriage can become satisfying?
Hope for a satisfying marriage keeps us from divorce. Belief that the marriage can improve will maintain motivation. Hopelessness is the enemy of the marriage. In the next post, I will discuss how to realistically communicate hope for the future of the marriage and what it means to make a reasonable decision.
