i think of the govt paid and supported it yes, but that wont happen
Couples who think they can save their marriage should pursue courses to do so. But if a clever and abusive parent can cling onto their child from child services, so too could a partner do to their partner. If one wants out, that should be enough. We should protect their choice, not alter it vainly
Marriage counseling can definitely save some marriages, and can benefit some that are not at risk of ending, but they are not a universal fix. If one spouse cheats, if there is abuse, or if there are lies that cannot be forgiven (taking on massive debt and not telling the spouse, like gambling debts) then counseling does not good, wastes time and money, and rubs salt in the wounds since they have to be talked through.
