So a divorce attorney's best advice for marriage would be the same as my best advise for getting a divorce, and that is to ask yourself what it is that you want. And then address your conduct to exactly what it is you want and what is most likely to elicit the behavior that will give you what you want. For example, you are at a restaurant with your husband and he is looking at another woman and you are annoyed, and of course you want to attack him. But now isn't the time because you are going to ruin dinner, he is going to mad and you are not going to be speaking to each other. So instead if you address the question at another time and just say you know sweetie we were at dinner, I was feeling a little awkward and you know, women can be so competitive and catty. And if when we are together if you could just only look at me when we are together. I understand that you might want to look at other women at other times, but it would just make me feel so much more protected. Then he gets to be the hero okay, he steps up to the plate. There's no fight and you get what you want and maybe you won't end up wanting a divorce.
