She’s expressed dissatisfaction with our marriage for some years now - but she doesn’t want to talk about it. Recently she said that she could see no future for us, and as our two children are 16 and 18, she hasn’t quite said, but strongly implied that she wants a divorce.
I got her to agree to counseling but she said that I just couldn’t make her happy.
We haven’t been to counseling yet (next week and might get put off for external reasons).
There are many factors in this - she’s a professional woman and I’ve been a stay-at-home dad for about 10 years. She’s burned out at work and is getting some pressure from her family (very non-catholic) to get rid of me. She’s also a fairly recent convert but I don’t know how committed she is to the sacremental nature of marriage (and her parent has divorced several times)
I suppose some of this is to vent to sympathetic ears, but practical advice would be appreciated.
Of course I have been praying.
