    Chipping Away

    Please, stop chipping away at me. I don't know why you insist on hurting me, because I refuse to live under your control. Refuse to simply back down and follow your dictates. This is not how love is supposed to be, this battle field of barbs thrown back and forth. You should...

    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.
