Discernment Counseling is for married couples that are looking for a new type of marriage therapy. This method interviews the parties separately, and puts divorce forward as an option, to solve irreconcilable differences. Is this wise?
No body is told after having tests at the hospital, "dying is an option if you don't like medication, but lets see how you get on." Some couples may not be happy with their partner, but friends go through stages like that all the time! They never go to "friends counseling", they never really split up!
The reason for therapy in the first place, is to rescue or aid the marriage, not to dissolve it! Does this new form of therapy put happiness first, instead of the marriage? Whether we are young or old marriage should be nurtured like a plant, and allowed to thrive!
