Counselor: Face each other. Now, in turns, one of you speaks about his or her feelings while the other listens, repeats and, in the end, summarizes. Who wants to start?
Wife: I will. I am not sure how this might help, but I hope it’ll save us. (Takes a deep breath.) I am not happy with our marriage.
Husband: You’re unhappy.
Wife: I feel you don’t appreciate me and my efforts to make this work.
Husband: You feel unappreciated.
Wife: I am not comfortable with you having the guys over for a beer every night.
Husband: You hate my friends.
Counselor: Now, sir, summarize, please.
Husband: I’ll give her the divorce.
