Percentage of what? Separation from what?
Please answer so the other experts and I can get to work on your question!
-Dr. Scott W, MD
Let me send your question to the experts in this particular category. Please be patient while they work!
Is this question about you? Are you seperated?
Are you male or female?
How long were you married?
How old are the two of you?
Why did you split?
What it really boils down to is love. I know it sounds simplistic, but I'm not talking about just loving someone, I'm talking about loving someone 'enough'. Ask yourselves,
Counseling is a good first step. An open heart, and open mind and believing in one another is just as important if not just as necessary. It will take two people who once loved each other enough to get married to think about where they want to be for the rest of their life and who they want to share it with. It is possible. There are no guarantees and no amount of statistics could give you the answer to your particular puzzle. Just know, anything is possible.
I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more.
One of my fellow experts made a good point about the drinking. If she (and you) have a drinking problem, the reconcilliation will not work if you do not stop drinking also. Slowing down will only pull her ack in or make her realize you haven't stopped and she leaves for good.
now I'm confused. were you pretending to be the husband? Does she live with you?
Who is the 'child', who is the 'parent'?
Is her husband interested in working things out?
