I hear a lot of people (including myself) who have gone through Marriage Counseling. I made a lot of progress but stbx did not. As a matter of fact, he said its over and stopped going. He has now chosen to move out, and will be moving out in 2-1/2 weeks. We don't have children and he's moving 35 miles away, so I don't really see us bumping into each, or having needs to communicate - much. I'm not sure if he intends on filing for divorce, when he drinks he says he's divorcing me, then other times he'll say - lets see what a year does. (He has a year's lease). I'm not going to "wait" around for him, but I know if somehow we got 'interested' again, there would be a lot of work to do. I've seen a lot of things on the web for Marriage Recovery/Enrichment weeks or programs. I've read several of the books which kind of go over the principles. Most don't focus on problem solving or conflict resolution, or problems between the two of you - like therapy does, but rather focus on positively rebuilding the marriage, re-building love, meeting others emotional needs, etc. Have any of you tried any of these intensive programs? I suppose if you tried it and it worked you wouldn't be here anymore. But just wondering if anyone tried any of these types of programs and your opinion is that they just don't work.
