    My wife and I are now in separate rooms,

    and she is talking like she will leave me as soon as she gets the chance. It's mainly because of money and our attitudes to it, but also because we spiral into a fight mode way too quickly. The thing that has caused this latest problem has been drawn out over a week, and she...

    Let's face it. Nearing the end of your marriage

    is difficult to recognize. I found it very useful to look at the grievance process of divorce. I hope the best for everybody. While it's upsetting to read other couples problems on here, I realize more that I'm not alone.
