My wife said today she is walking out of our 2 year marriage. She will not be my wife anymore. I asked if theres anything i, her or we could do and she said no. She gave up and believes God is making us grow apart. We have 2 children 4m and 18m. While i have been weak in the past and have thought about divorce and said these words to her, I know by todays conversation that she means it. I wanted counseling, she wanted counseling, i wanted retro, she wanted retro…I said no im not ready for retro but now, i will do anything to keep our marriage. I do love her, though she says its not real love because i am different from the guy she married, since day two.
I know im not perfect and that i am very broken but i do believe in my promise to love her above all (as part of my vows). we’ve had many arguments, many about family, many about finding an answer.
im trying everything here (at home). im first afraid of losing her then im afraid of being away from the kids, but then im afraid of feeling like she will hold the “divorce” over my head.
i will apologize to her tomorrow and ask her to hold off on her decision to divorce and go with me to retro. I spoke to a priest today. i am not giving up. i pray and pray and pray.
Lord help me.
