Is He Being Sincere

My husband asked for a divorce about a month ago. Since then I have prayed and asked God to reconcile us. During this time it would seem that my husband would take 2 steps forward and 5 backwards. Then a week ago he told me that he wants to go to counseling, but only after he moves out for a few months. I think this makes no sense. He told me he didn’t want to have to go home to me after counseling. He also said he doesn’t think a counselor will help. I feel like he only wants to go so he can “say” he went. I think once he’s gone, he’s gone. What do you think?

It is really hard to say, you may be right but either way isn’t it worth trying? Maybe there is a part of him that wants things to work out. Put your heart into it and you can say at least you gave it 100% without regrets.

Hi there Tanya,
I just happen to be a counselor….who is also unfortunately going through a divorce….not my choice though. I just wanted you to know that I’ve seen a lot of couples who come to counseling as a last resort so that they can say that they tried and aren’t really invested in the process. Many of them, however, become invested in their marriages once again even when they were not initially. Give it a try. Your marriage is worth it!! Praying for you and your husband.
