Well now you can give your clients counselling on what not to do from first hand experience! Start charging more!!!

Well learn from your own shortcomings and help yourself and others, I'm sorry about it but hopefully it gets better for ya OP.

I wish my real estate agent uncle would have thought of this when he was homeless for like three weeks. "Buy this house! Being homeless sucks; trust me!"

Sometimes you just can't fix what went wrong in a marriage. Sometimes people just don't love their significant other anymore. I hope you are able to put it behind you and continue your life unobstructed, best of luck.

Why not? It isn't like OP is a spouse-choosing counselor. Think about it - marriage counselors only deal with problems AFTER people have chosen the wrong person.

Most marriage counselors are militantly feminist divorcees, some of them multiple times. It's often that first hand experience that leads them to try to help others as a counselor.

I think this one was pretty clever actually. I like X-men. But at least you now have the experience of divorce - hopefully your next marriage is a better one! :) Maybe consider taking some time off work if the divorce is having a bad effect on you?

Exactly #7. I had a "Child Development" professor who was a child councilor, ect his kids refused to talk to him & they were in their late teens/20s. What was funny was when he would criticize parenting methods some of my classmates used on their kids, yet they were some of the best behaved kids who loved their parents.

Actually, most marriage counselors know that there are certain differences that simply cannot be overcome, even with the best counceling available. For example when one partner likes blue ink, the other one prefers black ink. Impossible to mediate here.

Actually, that's not true. There are people who, when told about certain situations in relationships or marriages, are able to tell the other person great advice on how to handle it. These people often just don't know how to apply their advice to their own life. Just because someone is divorced doesn't mean they aren't qualified to help other marriages.

That was in response to #9, by the way. I believe the situation I described in my previous comment is a certain kind of logical fallacy; not 100% sure, though.

It takes two people to fix a marriage. Op might have tried their hardest, but their partner did not want to try. There are many reasons to end a marriage. It does not mean Op is a bad therapist, it just means bad things happen to people.

No, no it isn't. Irony would be if the marriage counsellor were in the 30th year of a failed marriage where no one is happy and both individuals have come to hate each other but refuse to either divorce or attempt to reconcile.
