One of the biggest decisions someone will make is who they choose to marry. For most, the decision is easy. There is something unique and special about their partner that makes the decision clear, especially when the feelings are mutual.
For couples at risk, deciding whether to stay married or not, may be the most important decision they make. The trajectory of their lives and their children will change completely.
When someone is deciphering whether to continue a marriage, they often focus on whether their partner can change. However, this perspective does not create change.
Change occurs because an individual is working on themselves. The changes each partner makes on themselves can impact marital dynamics. Moving the focus from blaming to changing oneself is what keeps marriages thriving.
