Are You Having Second Thoughts About Getting Divorced? 

Actor Sean Penn and his wife actress Robin Wright have called off their divorce. Divorce papers were filed several months ago, but it seems that the couple have reconciled and are back together. The couple have been married for many years and have two children, so it is good to see them attempting to work things out instead of rushing into a divorce.

This story has most likely aroused some feelings in people who are currently going through a divorce but may be having second thoughts. Divorce brings up so many conflicting feelings and emotions. One day you feel angry and the next you are overcome with sadness, reminiscing about the good times. How do you know if it is worth giving your marriage another shot?

 I think it depends largely on the circumstances of the break up. Did your spouse cheat? If so, can you forgive him? Or maybe you are no longer attracted to your mate and want out of the marriage because you are bored. Can you rekindle the romance if you put some time and energy into the marriage and seek marriage counseling?

 If you are having doubts about the divorce and your spouse is open to a reconciliation, then you owe it to yourself and your family to see if your marriage can be saved. Why live with what ifs and regrets? If after marriage counseling and some soul searching you still want a divorce, you can go ahead with a clear conscious and know in your hear you are making the right decision.

I hear ya nowareman,  I am having the same problem. I thinks thats why this is so hard for me to handle. Good marriage, good sex. Best friends. Still love each other but....The marriage isn't the problem. The problem is whats out side of the marriage. And my husbands fear or dealing with it.  Good luck

I wish tht I could communicate thus point to my stbx. She won't even consider counseling. I do't know why she is so willing to just give up before trying everything in our power to save our marriage. Like most couples we have had some rough times, but all in all a good marriage. We enjoy each others company,have a satisfying sex life(but maybe not enough for her. She could go 3 or 4 times a day if I could keep up). We have our differences, but their no reason for divorcing over
