My friends need a marriage counselor in Manhattan. Preferably today.

asks a similar question, but it's about pre-marriage couples counseling, and it hasn't really been answered. The couple in question have been married for three years, and divorce papers have been prepared and shelved at least once. Now they're back on the table.
I know I can't solve their problems -- especially long distance -- but neither seems willing to sit down and go through the phone book, or ask their therapists for a recommendation (they're each seeing a separate therapist). They're too busy fighting over the really stupid stuff that seems so important when you're trying to "win".
I've given all the advice I can (including "decide if you want to DTMFA, and if you don't, then start talking about "us" instead of "me"), but they need professional help.
