Dating your wife during separation
When you are dating your separated husband or wife, It’s an important time to continue to work on building connection.
Even now, make no attempt to persuade your spouse to come back. Problem solving is helpful if any issues remain at that time.
It is an unattractive message: That’s not easy to do when your spouse is telling you it would be better if you were just friends or to give him or her “space.” Clients often need a lot of guidance at this stage because their emotions make them want to react in ways that push their spouse further away.
This will help you to start thinking about your spouse’s perspective.
You can increase your empathy by thinking about how you would feel and what you might do if you were in your spouse’s situation.
Often when love is restored, the initial issues are no longer relevant.
Working on marital issues and reconnecting at the same time will make both more difficult and less likely to succeed.
