when we hear about separation, we think that somebody is getting a
divorce. That's not always the
case. Sometimes it can be used as a tool
to save a marriage from falling into divorce.
trick to a separation is to understand why you're doing it. Your key goal should be to focus on your
marriage. This means setting ground
rules, and obeying the vows you made when you married. Separation is not a time
to "test the waters" or bring somebody else in the mix. There is no surer way to bring about
other thing is to be honest. That also
means don't "omit" truths; that's just the same as lying. Once you've separated Take time away from
family friends and life to concentrate on each other. Try to remind each other what brought you
together in the first place.
you handle this right, separation won't mean divorce, it'll mean the beginning
of another chapter in your marriage.
