Our first session, for either and both of us. Worthy of note is that neither of us are the type of personalities that like reaching out to professionals for help with personal issues.

Our marriage is on the verge of collapse because of my wife's betrayal, but in the one short hour we were in counselling, (and this is the first session, so it was mostly information gathering) I think we both came away with a sense of hope and clarity.

The pain is still there. But the confusion has ebbed. Even a little, it's a gift.

If you're resisting MC, don't. I thought it would be a waste of time, and it most definitely wasn't.

So pleased to read this, Arable! I would also mention that if the first MC you try isn't the right "fit," don't give up. Seek one that works for both of you.

Great! That's encouraging.
(Finally10 and I are beginning to look for a MC that might work for us. His IC is going wells and he feels ready.)
I know it might take several tries. Sounds like you may have lucked out.

Happy for you AS

So happy for you!

It's sometimes painful work in MC as time goes on, but it is worth it!

If you are not in IC, I would recommend it alongside MC. Clarity for your journey and your feelings outside of the two of you together is important.

Blessings to you!

I absolutely agree with BFFGone.
IC was a life-saver for me and our marriage.
