I had a client today who announced that she was getting a divorce.
I asked her if she loved her husband.
She said, "Yes, but he drives me crazy." she said, "He is lazy, he spends too much money------------." It went on forever.
I said, "What if you figured out what you could accept, what you couldn't, and just worked on the things that could be changed."
The papers had been filed so her half hour appointment turned into an hour and a half. I think I finally convinced her how much worse off she would be if she got a divorce.
I will keep an eye on her.
