“There is no hope for my marriage. It can’t be fixed!” I hear this sentence several times a week. These are words spoken by really wonderful people, who really believe that the statement is true. They have been deeply hurt by their spouses and they believe that the level of pain is so great, that there is no way the marriage can recover. They have lost hope. When I begin to explore and go deeper with these individuals, sometimes I hear in their stories a hint of their wanting it to be different. Sometimes even though they are saying, “There is no hope” they are secretly praying that there is hope and that their marriage could be fixed. Sometimes they are saying it, and they really want to end the relationship. Regardless of where they are when they are talking to me, here are some guidelines and principles that I have used to help the individuals lean back into their marriage and rediscover hope.
I am a big believer that there is always hope. Having had the opportunity to work with hundreds of couples who have rediscovered hope and restored their marriages fuels my passion to help couples create phenomenal marriages even after hope has been lost. If you are beginning to lose hope, or would just like to have more information about my non-traditional approach to saving marriages, check out my website at stlouismarriagecoaching.com or call me at 314-606-4272. Until next week, keep falling more in love!
