Honestly those statements say it all. It's not worth it in your situation. You are approaching counseling with a negative attitude, neither of you are willing to change, and your mind is made up. Counseling only works when both spouses are willing to save their marriages. I guess your money will be going towards a divorce attorney.....
BTW many counselors will adjust their fees to accommodate a budget for those without insurance. I know my therapist was only charging one patient $35 per session. It never hurts to ask.
