Marriage Mediation or Marriage Counseling?
Many relationships may be consumed by disagreement, silent tensions, extra marital affairs or bitter vocal argument. These symptoms of a toxic relationship often lead to alienation followed by unhappiness and dissatisfaction that frequently result in divorce or spousal break-up. While couples may spend months and often years in marriage counseling to solve marital problems without satisfaction, there may be a better, and faster, way.
Marriage Mediation Helps Save Marriages
Marriage mediation is a healthy and direct alternative to marriage counseling for couples with marriage problems. Conflicts can be resolved quickly and effectively while a building a better relationship.
Marriage counseling typically brings couples or partners together for joint therapy sessions. The pathology of the marital breakdown is explored and analyzed.
Marriage mediation is practical, agreement-oriented and detail-oriented. When a couple identifies specific areas of conflict on which to focus, they learn to use the mediation process to find points of agreement and negotiate conflict-reducing resolutions. Through the process of marriage mediation, couples will be developing and practicing cooperative, respectful, constructive ways of communicating and reaching accord.
Defining areas of conflict, considering possible solutions, and building mutually-supportive and well-understood agreements may change the most difficult marriage into one with tremendous potential. Poor communication, blurred commitments, unspoken expectations, unclear divisions of roles, and differing understandings about time and money can create power struggles, distress, and relationship breakdown.
Areas of disagreement may also include differing expectations of affection and sex, relationships with family and friends, parenting practices, money management, religious practice and career plans.
Divorce the Best Solution?
Every long-term relationship will experience conflict.
Divorce alone does not terminate conflict, especially when children are involved. Most, if not all, of the same conflicts remain without the mitigating benefits of marital commitment and physical affection. Future long-term relationships will also bring their own unique clash of expectations while still continuing to face unresolved issues involving a prior partner.
Find Resolution and Peace
Marriage mediation is the process of helping spouses to identifying what is and isn't working day-to-day in their marriage. Using a safe, structured, and confidential process, the focus is on establishing communication to construct clear and mutually satisfying agreements that positively and productively shape the relationship.
If partners in a relationship do not learn to voluntarily reach fair agreements to benefit their relationship, one or both participants will be perpetually disappointed and unhappy.
