COULD A TRIAL SEPARATION SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE? IS YOUR MARRIAGE READY FOR A TRAIL-SEPARATION?
Most couples practice or go through trial separations without even knowing what a trial separation is. They don't have a term for it, yet they practice it - usually as a "cooling-off" tool that buys the couple time alone to think things through.

IS YOUR MARRIAGE READY FOR A SEPARATION?
WHEN SHOULD A SEPARATION BE TRIED?
Trial separations are not like normal separations where divorce is almost a certainty. When marriages break down, people may choose to take time away from each other instead of filing for a divorce. This is normally done by living together under the same roof, just not as husband and wife or as a married couple anymore. Whether or not this is the best way to go about it, would depend on several factors including emotional state, financial standing, children, and level of conflict.Some couples live away from each other - there is no one correct way of doing it, it all varies from couple to couple and according to circumstances. They are, however, only to be considered if marriage couselling has failed to solve the problems.
As a couple going through a rough patch in your marriage, you need to consider ans weigh up the pros and cons of a trial separation. If you are not yet sure that divorce is the only way out and if you have not yet exhausted every possible avenue to save the marriage, yet you cannot exist healthily together.
