I have been doing almost all the housework for the past month or so as she has pretty much just let it all go. It either turns into silence or an argument. I want to save my marriage. The regular work of daily forgiving his father gave Joshua a sense that the hold of the pain of his past was diminishing in his life. Be gentle as possible as you don't want to agitate him though I know that may be impossible.
Weekends were kind of the same. The other one has to compensate for that. Your wife was right to suggest it. So when your , how do you deal with it?

Oh Henlin - I can't even give you any advice because my situation is so similar you were right.
I don't know what to do. I have since resigned from both boards did so last month so I can just focus on work and home. Through much self-appraisal and introspection over the past couple of months, I believe we're at where we are right now largely in part due to the above. Anger is associated with an unwillingness to give oneself to treatment in a number of studies. She understood that I was tired a lot and knew I was trying but at the same time she didn't understand so with that she kinda gave up and let her frustration build up.
In many ways I function as a single mom, though I know I can't compare it to truly being single. She is animate about it not being her hormones, and not depression since she still enjoys doing things that she used to. I was lucky my husband recognized that he was hurting and wanted to feel better. Thank you for sharing and please keep us posted. Dont let him know you are doing this, it needs to be your secret playbook. We mat get to the point that there is too much damage to our relationship to fix it but I will know in my heart I did everything I could. No free time with one another for the past few years.
I love my wife very much and have completely taken her for granted and desperately want to make things right, I just hope its not too late. I love her with all my heart and it kills me that I havnt shown her that love and respect and to cherish her as she deserves. I am sorry you are going through this! I adore and love him. He doesnt have much to give emotionally to any of us. Daughter is a serious competitive swimmer, so that adds a lot of stress in our lives. It does seem to happen that famous phrase midlife crisis when people search for something different. I'm trying to figure out if her complete 180 in behavior over the past couple of months is a result of depression on her end, though.
I will revise what I was trying to say. Spouses state that they are helped by spending 15 to 30 minutes each night asking the Lord to heal the pain of loneliness which has touched them at every life stage of their lives. Even if she called me up right now and wanted to stop the divorce I'm not sure if I can trust her not to do this again.

She won't go to therapy and told me I should move on. I know I could have been a better wife to him…. I have raised 2 children both on swim team, so I know how demanding that is. He is far more capable than you realize. Currently, we are living together, but I am working on saving enough money to move. And difficulties for the kids?!!!!
