Is marriage counselling too late for us?
For some couples, what has happened in their relationship appears like a train wreck. Unfaithfulness, domestic violence or emotional abuse have destroyed connection and trust. This may have occurred gradually or through traumatic events. There is no doubt about the huge damage.
Can too much emotional damage have occurred? It may be that the couple cannot continue to live together without further damage. The goal then becomes one of being respectful, amicable and self-controlled, while separated.
