Understandably, many of my unhappily married clients simply don't know what to do. They're not sure if it's best to stay in the marriage and work through their differences with, or without, a counselor; take a temporary "time-out" (e.g. separate): or get a divorce.
There are obviously pros and cons inherent in each, and it's best to explore these before making a final decision.
If you're facing these types of decisions, I recommend that you read Susan Pease Gadoua's Psychology Today article, "New Year, New Decade, New Marital Resolutions," because she succinctly summarizes the three basic options and offers straightforward and practical advice.
