Ask yourself some serious questions and answer them honestly. Is there still some love in the marriage, or are you just two people living together? Do you really want a divorce or are you just angry about something that could be fixed? Have you thought about what your life will be like after a divorce? Can you remember when you last enjoyed each other’s company? Do you dream or fantasize about divorce or life without your spouse? Has your spouse been unfaithful? Can you get past your spouse’s adultery even though studies show that people who cheat once in a marriage are likely to cheat again? Do you feel irritated with your spouse all the time? Are you ready to let go of the good as well as the bad in your marriage?
