For many years, people have widely assumed that when a couple decides to pursue a divorce that there is no chance that they will ever be together as a couple again. That’s largely because once the process begins, those involved in it tend to focus only on getting through it and moving on with their lives. However, a recent study regarding the possibility of reconciliation as seen by spouses going through a divorce has shed new light on what those involved in a divorce may be thinking and feeling.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota recently completed a large study of 2,500 people and asked them about their interest in reconciliation with their spouses. Much to their surprise, they found that approximately 25 percent of people who were in the late stages of a divorce believed that their marriage could be saved with hard work. In addition, nearly one-third of those questioned were open to receiving marriage help.
As people continue to study the issues regarding marriage and divorce, many of the findings in these studies all but confirm what society has generally assumed. However, this study is one that could change the perspective of people in general as it reveals the possibility that spouses may have second thoughts about ending their marriages more often than most people would have believed.

Therefore, people in this position need to obtain professional help as soon as possible.
