Enrolling the Reluctant Spouse

M. Marcy Jones is an author, speaker, lawyer, coach, and advocate for change. She lives in Lynchburg, Virginia and she writes a wonderful blog called Graceful Divorce Solutions – if you haven’t been over there yet, you should check it out today at

A couple of weeks ago she posted an article about how to enroll a reluctant spouse in the collaborative process:

My client, Mary, came to see me a few months ago for a consultation. We went over her situation and her options, and she clearly expressed an interest in using the collaborative process. Her concern, though, was that her husband, Joe, was drinking a lot, not home very much, and she didn’t know how or when she would be able to talk to him about this option.

While every case is different, Jones gives some great ideas for how to get your spouse on the same page and, most importantly, how do it with kindness and dignity.
