The couple, early 30s, married for 5 years, was referred by Syariah Court for Mandatory Counselling Programme as part of requirements for divorce.
The husband found out his wife had an affair with her colleague. He was so upset and disappointed. He filed for a divorce as a way-out to the painful chapter in his life. He was so helpless and did not know what to do as the couple could not talk and see each other face to face. His wife moved out with the two young children to her parents’ house.
Instead of focusing on the affair, the counsellor helped the couple to review their marriage. Although they have many differences and negative experiences in the past, they realized that they still love each other. They came to all the 5 sessions provided by SYC. They have divorced in Islamic law. However, they plan to re-marry and have a mini honeymoon. They are also coming back for more counselling sessions and work on strengthening their marriage.
