We have been separated for ages. My partner wants to get back together. I’m unsure.
It is difficult when partners don’t share the same hopes and motivation for rebuilding the relationship. This is true especially after a long or complex history or after one or more affairs.
However, even at this stage, therapy can break new ground. It can help clear up misunderstandings and bring forgiveness to past wounds. Partners may discover new hope for their relationship.
At the end of the day, the choice to resume after a long separation is something that only the couple can make. Counselling with one of our marriage counsellors can provide a means to make that choice wisely.
