with the purpose of making them reflect on matters that they consider to be opportune

In the context of the sentence the judge is calling this couple in to reconsider their decision of ending the marriage. So it is fitting the phrase "hacerles las reflexiones" to denote that this is a weighty decision and it bears reflecting upon.
