Some people have this strange habit of converting themselves into neutral arbitrators and invite themselves where they are not needed. Dear friend, be familiar with boundaries and know when to cross over.
If a couple is avoiding each other in a party, don't rush into the assumption that they need to be counselled. Who told you they have a problem?
What if they had agreed to let each other mingle freely as long as they don't flout their ethical conduct? When you visit a doctor, he doesn't give a prescription by looking at your fallen face, swollen limb or red eyes.

No! He listens very well and takes you through a step by step diagnosis to identify the real cause of your sickness.
So, don't be so quick to advice a couple before they ask for your help. Partners always know their real problems. Some could be open to arbitration but for others, it's totally unwarranted. They find their own ways of solving their differences even if it's ignoring each other as a punishment.
Well, if that works well for them, it's their choice. If they do not invite you to help with mediation, just keep your distance.
