NOT READY TO THROW IN THE TOWEL YET?

 

BEFORE PULLING THE PLUG TRY MARITAL MEDIATION

 

 

You started a life together because of all your compatibilities now use Marital Mediation to help you deal with your incompatibilities

 

 Marital Mediation is a process used to resolve conflict within a marriage. This type of  mediation is conducted like any other accept the mediator will provide coaching and references to  educate the couple on how to resolve the conflict and communicate more effectively. It helps spouses negotiate issues that they are unable to handle directly with eachother by improving listening and expressive skills.

 

Marital Mediation can assist  couples in overcoming common challenges that often lead to divorce, Such as disagreements over finances, spending patterns and contribution in the marriage, different parenting responsibilities, household responsibilities, different  communication styles and  other relationship issues, dividing household chores, intimacy issues, infidelity, career conflicts, conlicting religion, family and friend conflict, trouble with in-laws, job loss, inheritance.

 

 

Why ignore the problem?

Why yell?

Protect your children from witnessing the stress of marital discord.

Prevent separation 

 

 

People often "jump the gun" to separation and divorce  when they are having marital problems because they do not know of any other option. The difference between a marriage that lasts and a marriage that breaks down is lack of communication and lack of conflict resolution skills however, these skills can be taught.

 

Deciding to leave a marriage is a decision that should be made carefully. A Marital Mediator can help you evaluate the pros and cons of leaving or staying.
 
It's hard for many to stay married. Its one relationship in life that requires constant negotiation with your partner over space, food, time management,  
money ,children, pets, work etc the list goes on and on.  Mediation offers the conflict resolution  skills necessary to continue this constant negotiation .
 
As a Divorce Mediator, I have met with all types of clients from many different backgrounds each with their own set of issues but all with a common goal. The common goal is to work out the issues so that they can be happy and enjoy life again.
 
For some couples this meant splitting up as fast as possible and for others this meant splitting up because their partner was unwilling to compromise on the issues they were having. This made me wonder if maybe I could help couples learn to communicate better with their partners by teaching them the necessary conflict resolution skills so that they were able to negotiate better with their partners to stay married. This is why I have added Marital Mediation to my practice. To assist couples in dealing with daily conflicts in their marriage and daily lives. 
 

Because most Marital Mediators are usually Divorce Mediators the couple will be dealing with someone who has a lot of experience with financial matters, issues with children etc and can call in experts when needed. In some cases, the Children may be brought into a Family Mediation session especially if the couple has teens. 

 
SESSIONS
 

During the mediation sessions , the couple will have the opportunity to talk about their issues with the marriage or with their partner. The mediator will listen and provide input and offer suggestions while promoting mutual understanding and productive communication between the couple.  In some cases the mediator may suggest the drafting of a Postnuptial Agreement. A Postnuptial Agreement is a voluntary contract created after the marriage to resolve conflict.

 Marital Mediation is not therapy.  It uses problem solving techniques to address the issues a couple is currently experiencing. It teaches more effective ways to communicate and interact with each other by  helping the couple gain insight into their behavior within the relationship.  These skills are useful in life in any situation in any place or any time.
 
 
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARITAL COUNSELING AND MARITAL MEDIATION?
 
 

 

Marital Counseling is conducted by a mental health professional with training in social work and psychology. Marital counseling involves a diagnosis of issues past, present, family history, mental health, personal history , therapy and treatment of personality and relationship problems. The counselor will then analyze  the information and help the parties understand their behaviors.

 

Marital Mediation is different because it involves dispute resolution. Marriages as well as in life are filled with problems. The mediator will work with the couple to help them resolve their disputes by learning how to negotiate better with their spouse “fight fair”. The couple will learn effective communication and active listening skills. 

 

There is usually less resistance by a spouse to attending a mediation session then a marital counseling session. The classic “ I don’t need therapy!”  There’s no blame in mediation. 

 

DO I HAVE TO BE MARRIED TO GO TO A MARITAL MEDIATOR?

 

The answer is No. Many unmarried couples use Marital Mediation as a tool to resolve their relationship disputes. If a formal agreement is needed then the Mediator will prepare a Cohabitation  Agreement.

 

 

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE TRY MARITAL MEDIATION AND DECIDE WE WANT TO SEPARATE AND DIVORCE?

 

In this scenario the couple can move right into Divorce Mediation to work out the terms of the Separation and Divorce. Often the same Mediator is used since they are already familiar with the couple's issues in the marriage and that's an added benefit.
