Early Results Produced By A Future-Directed Approach to Divorce
The first test couple to begin the process of future-directed divorce were recently separated and ready to file for divorce. They were willing to go into this program in the hope of ending their marriage amicably. They chose to recommit their marriage after the second session. The second couple recommitted their marriage at the close of the first session. As an approach to divorce, this future-directed context began to look like a total failure!
The third couple actually divorced. They had been separated and fighting for years, and had done significant damage to their marriage, and to their children. After several conversations, they were able to resolve their remaining settlement issues without resorting to trial. Most importantly, their children now have an experience of their parents cooperating with each other and being appropriate and available to them. They regained stability and an inspiring level of serenity.
Typically, there would be a disclaimer at this point, stating that "your results may vary." Not this time. This is a time for accountability. This is a time to promise the unpredictable and even the inconceivable. If human beings ever get to experience Peace in the world, it will have been created something like this.
