E89: Before you get Divorced

Anyone who is contemplating divorce is in very tough situation. This person might feel guilty, but, mostly they feel trapped. 

In this episode Mark and Adena help people that are contemplating divorce. Here are some thoughts from the episode:

  1. People often wonder why people get divorced after 15 years. Did something suddenly go wrong? Actually, in most cases things were bad from the very start. 
  2. When we get married we do not know how to be married in a powerful way.
  3. When we get married we don't really know who we are. And we don't really know who our spouse is. Each person carries personal issues into the relationship. 

There is hope for the troubled marriage. You don't have to feel it, or understand it. But there is a pathway to a different reality. Reach out to us via email: adena@markdelaney.me or mark@markdelaney.me.
