I would like to thank you very much for the impressive and promising conversation. For what feels like an eternity, my husband and I have been able to get along with each other again. I can hardly describe in words the ballast you have taken off my soul. I have slept well for the first time in weeks. Thank you so much! Although you didn't know us, you displayed incredible sensitivity and empathy that I could only marvel at. You got my husband to listen, talk and engage with a topic for three hours. A masterstroke!
I am now again in good spirits that my husband and I will find a solution that we can both live with well. So you have not only helped to ensure that our future, albeit separate, has peaceful prospects, but also that our 18 years together will be remembered fondly. That was infinitely important to me.
For me, the agreement reached with you is acceptable and I will gladly sign it.
Once again, thank you very much for your commitment!
There is a lot of pain and distress involved in a separation. It is a highly emotional context with long entrenched issues. Therefore, it can sometimes be important and appropriate in individual cases to take a stand. To put one's own opinion, especially the legal prevailing opinion, can be appropriate in very complex separation processes, in order to disentangle the tangle of different needs and views.
However, I am dismayed by the presentation and the part concerning the children. My main concern and motivation for doing this job on a daily basis is to help the parents protect the children from unnecessary suffering and harm. This would inevitably come to them with a war of the Roses, The way I am quoted here, there must be a big misunderstanding. A comparison with dog training can sometimes bring a clarity and may have been said with a smirk. Certainly not as a trivialization of the plight of children.
