Sadly, most couples who separate stay separated. Sometimes, though, having some time away from each other, with counseling during the separation, helps couples find ways to heal and strengthen their relationship. If they are still unsure about whether re-uniting will work, these couples can develop a written agreement about how they are going to treat each other and what each will do to contribute to making their lives together loving and respectful. The reconciliation agreement can also say what the terms of their separation will be if re-uniting does not work out.
We love helping estranged couples figure out how to reconcile and make their relationships healthy and happy.
