Determining if Your Relationship is Worth Saving?: to determine if your relationship is worth saving ask yourself the following questions:

* Do you like your partner?
* Do you like your partner’s sense of humor?
* Do you and your partner have a similar sense of space?
* What is the glue that holds the two of you together?
* How many years have you been unhappy together?
* How many years have you been happy together?
* What are the financial implications of staying together, or leaving?
* What are the social implications of staying together, or leaving?
* Do you have kids together, and if so, what age? What would joint custody look like?
* Why did you initially marry this person? What was your initial unspoken contract? For example, she would financially support me, and I would cook, clean and provide emotional warmth to her.
* What is the glue that holds the two of you together?
* Of the issues that the two of you have, what have you done individually and collectively to address these issues? Have you exhausted all of your options?
* Who supports this marriage, who does not, and why?
* Who were you prior to getting married? Who are you today? Do you like yourself better today?
* Even when you and your partner are angry with each other, do you treat each other with respect? If so, in what way?
* In what ways does your partner push you to grow as a person?
