Definitely Worth a Try

Posted on | December 29, 2013 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
My wife and I have had a miserable marriage since the beginning. In all honesty, the only reason we’ve stayed together at all is because of the sex (which is great). We were seriously talking about divorce but then she just found out that she was pregnant. Would it be wrong to get a divorce before the baby is born? Or do you think we should stay together in case the baby changes our marriage? Maybe if we focus on a child instead of our problems, things will get better.
Filled with Doubts

Dear Doubts:
A baby to save a marriage is hardly a unique idea, albeit a generally unsuccessful one.  How about some marriage counseling BEFORE the baby is born.  A good therapist and some good honest work on your relationship NOW is the very least you owe your child. A parenting course wouldn’t hurt either.
