When it comes to online dating advice there is a lot of conflict when it comes to giving out dating advice. Myself I feel that there is general advice that is pretty well standard when it comes to dating advice but there are well those special and unique situations that make quite a difference.
It is easy for some one to give advice to someone that maybe is thinking of leaving their girlfriend / wife or boyfriend / husband. These are unique situations in some scenarios where asking a friend for advice may be the wrong thing to do as you would be better off to seek and get professional advice for the scenario.
In a scenario as above we are better off sometimes to seek help especially if you are thinking of leaving your spouse as sometimes it is best to talk to someone who is a specialist in dealing with situations of this type. It is better to find out before you are to end a marriage if there is the opportunity that you may save your marriage first other than to end it.
If you take the time and both you and your spouse sit down with a professional in the field and find out if there is a chance of salvaging your marriage first other than to end it in an unnecessary divorce that sometimes can get down right mean and dirty especially when lawyers are involved. This is a situation where it may take quite a few sessions and cost a few dollars but it may be the right thing to do rather than to end your marriage.
Though things may not be salvaged but at least you know that you have given it an honest try by both of you sitting down with a professional and trying to resolve it. Advice would then be to separate and both of you to get on with your own lives but to hopefully remain friends.
