    I have been married for 19 years.

    I am extremely unhappy and lonely. However, can't stand to hurt anyone even though I don't have the feelings for him that I once did. The one time I suggested a divorce, he threatened suicide. I know at some point I need to think about myself. But does one ever get past the...

    I want a divorce but my wife won't give it to

    me. She has threatened suicide, attempted suicide, and gets completely depressed when I broach the subject. I am trapped in a loveless, empty farce and it's slowly killing me.
