Do divorced couples get back together?

Answer

Some divorced couples get back together after working through their issues. In order to reconcile and start the relationship anew, both parties must reflect on what caused the divorce in the first place.

Forgiveness is an important step to take when getting back together after a divorce. If either party feels betrayed or wronged, resentment can build that will hinder the repairing of the relationship. Effective communication must also be in place for the relationship to work. Being open and honest is a major step in rebuilding trust and emotional stability.

When both parties are committed to making things work, therapy or relationship workshops are an option. According to a study done by Kim Ryan and John Gottman at the University of Washington, couples' workshops can help people create a lasting, satisfactory relationship.
