Marriage Mediation or Divorce Mediation?

December 13, 2015

MN Marriage MediationWith the divorce rate in the United States still comfortably above fifty-percent, it may seem that it is a commonplace in our society. But for the couple experiencing difficulty in their marriage, the decision to seek divorce may not be so simple and it certainly is never easy. So the messages we receive from the entertainment world, the sports world, and perhaps even from our circles of friends that divorce is no big deal are quite likely inaccurate for the vast majority of people experiencing difficulty in their relationships. Divorce is “easy” for a very small number of couples, if any at all.

For the rest of us, it is likely to be among the most stressful experiences of our lives. And when we realize that, we may decide that lending more effort to our marriages may be worth it. Marriage mediation is an increasingly popular option among couples who might have otherwise sought divorce. If the effort to create the relationship was worth it, giving effort to save the relationship may also be worth it.

The professional staff of Johnson Mediation is uniquely trained to help you make the best possible decision regarding your marriage, even if, ultimately, divorce is your best option. But before that point, there may be much to consider. Prominent issues that are commonly addressed by the Johnson Mediation staff include the following:

  • Financial issues: Having not enough money can be enormously stressful and cause us to strike out against the person closest to us.
  • Illness and injury: With lingering questions about healthcare availability and affordability, illness and injury offer a unique combination of stress.
  • Your children’s education: Whether planning for college or simply not having time to help kids with their school projects, our kids’ educational welfare can add stress to a marriage.
  • Alcohol and substance abuse: The power of substance abuse cannot be overstated—it has the potential to unravel relationships.
  • Infidelity: Violations of relationship contracts can cause permanent damage, but it’s worth asking if it can be overcome.
  • Pregnancy and birth: The introduction of a new family member can be difficult.
  • Extended family issues: Our spouses’ families can complicate our lives, sometimes with great difficulty.
  • Step-parenting and blended family concerns.
  • The needs of emotionally challenged children.
