Can Separation Save Your Marriage? Find Out If a Separation Can Stop a Divorce

Can a separation save your marriage?  Even though you've tried everything you could think of to better your marriage, things are still rocky.  Maybe a separation is what it will take to finally help.

A marital separation can be either informal or legal.  An informal separation is when you both agree to separate for a while, to try and work things out.  A legal separation is more final.  There are lawyers involved, and it is more like a divorce.

A separation should be considered only when you have tried everything else you can think of to save your marriage.  There are many ways to find marital help.  Some, but definitely not all, include friend or family advice, marital counselling, and ebooks that are written by professionals, to help couples at home to resolve their marital problems.

A trial separation may be helpful for your marriage because it allows both of you to know how it will feel being apart from each other.  Sometimes, the sheer knowledge that your spouse won't be there when you go home is enough to turn marriages around, for the better.  Another benefit of separation is that you ARE still married, and when you work things out, you simply live together again.

The conflicts you were having while still living together will be gone when you are separated.  This gives you both time to really think about your marriage.  You CAN still save your marriage, even when only one of you really wants to try.

A separation will let you take a deep look within yourself and at your marriage, and will let you decide, without having to make a hasty decision, if you want to save your marriage or not.  Keep in mind why you got married in the first place.  And remember that, while a divorce is final, a separation is not.
