If hubby agreed to go for marriage counseling does it mean that he's willing to work on the marriage

I've been having a problem with my marriage lately and i decided that we need to see a marriage counselor. do you think he's going to the marriage counselor means he's willing to work on the marriage?

Update: October 20, 2009.

if he agreed to go i would say he wants to keep the marriage together.

I would think that is the reason why he would agree to go with you. it would be a waste of time and money if he didn't try to make things better between the two of you

Maybe he just doesn't want to be the one who gets blamed for the divorce, so he goes to counseling to say he tried to work things out. That way when you get depressed and file for divorce he can say it was your fault.

Well, it a good sign that he may be willing to, no guarantee, but a lot better than if he refused to do so.

no, of course not. there may be pressures brought to bear (including guilt, fear, family expectations) that allow him to agree to attend, but will not motivate him to work on a genuine and long-lasting solution.

No. My ex-husband agreed to marriage counseling and went for a few times and claimed that I didn't want to do it any more. If he's decided that he doesn't love you any more; it's over.

It's a good sign he's willing to.. hopefully the counseling will help. Alot of men won't go, so he wouldn't if he wasn't.

Well not agreeing would be a clear sign that he has given up. So this must mean something else...

instead of wasting the money on a marriage counselor, tell him to give the money to you and for him to get his act together*
