    Things have been crap

    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.

    I Think Its Over

    I have been with him for 14.  We met when I was 17.  We have no children.  So many signs were there that this wasn't going to last.  He didn't plan a special marriage proposal, he simply gave me the ring and asked if I wanted to keep it, but I said yes. ...
