Have you guys had any opportunity to talk about marital counseling? I know that it helps bring out feelings and emotions that may not be presented. Keep at it buddy still cheering for you guys.
In all honesty, we went to two counsellors. Neither made us feel welcome, and we both felt judged when we left. I don't think at this point marriage counselling is even an option.
My wife and I have been talking again. Unfortunately, the news isn't going the way I'd like. She is still firm on filing on Friday. My wife is a straight shooter. She is open, and honest.
I appreciate all the love and support guys. I want this to work more than anything. The sad thing is that while I uncover more of myself, I feel worse and worse about how I've treated her.
I am up and down about how I feel this will turn out. Yesterday, I thought she might give me more time. Today, I think she will be first in line.
You know were all here for you man

My wife will be filing for divorce. I'm not sure if it will be tomorrow or not.
I will continue to evaluate myself, and make the changes I feel are necessary. I appreciate the support. I wish this update had better news....
I haven't given up on us, and won't until it's officially done.
Just a suggestion. Ask your wife on a date this weekend. Dress up and take her to a nice place to eat, movie and then home. Maybe flowers, etc. Treat the entire night the same way you did the first time you did ask her out. After the date is over don't try to kiss her just say good night. Win her heart back.
My wife and I were pretty close to where you are at and the only problem with our marriage was ME. It's been a long two years but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a long process for us and it may work for you.
Just a suggestion my friend and good luck.

Thank you Kram. I'm happy things are working for your wife and you.
Sorry to hear bud, hopefully things can still turn around for you
Don't give up hope yet. Keep fighting the good fight.
Make sure you do all you can. Don't want any "woulda, shoulda, coulda" things hanging over your head.
Chin up, and know that you got family here if you need it.
Your team. All the time.
A quick update on what has happened since 1-11-13.
First, my wife hasn't filed for divorce, and I am sleeping in bed with her at night. We hold hands from time to time, and occasionally hug. Other than that, there isn't much physical contact.
There is still plenty of tension / resentment, and she hasn't committed to working it out yet. By committed, I mean she hasn't decided whether she will put the effort in like she had in the past.
I definitely feel like the marriage can be salvaged. She was reading some material from one of her social work classes, and it went something like this, "every issue can be fixed or resolved". I repeated it to her after she said it, and she understood where I was going with it.
The changes I'm making have already started paying dividends in my overall happiness. While the situation I am in sucks, I am happy it happened. I know that our marriage can become one that we are proud of, and I am committed to that outcome. I hope my wife chooses that path as well.
I love my wife very much, and the past couple months I have realized that I wasn't a good husband to her. I wasn't in tune with her needs mentally, physically or emotionally. All of these issues resulted in me becoming unattractive to her, and also built resentment. If she chooses marriage, we will succeed. We will come out of this process stronger than before, and more in touch with each others feelings and needs.
Just wanted to say thanks again for the well wishes, prayers and support. Things have moved in the right direction which is something I am very thankful for.
Thanks for the update. Glad that there is still hope for you guys.
Nice to hear some good news! Hang in there, it sounds like things are heading in the right direction and may lead to a stronger relationship overall. Congrats on the progress!
Glad to hear the good news. Best wishes!
Sounds like getting things back to normal still won't be easy but that was a great update
Proud of your hard work, either way you are better for learning from this
