***Fair fight rules so don't use the divorce words. We are both Christians. She has no christian grounds to divorce me. She told me to get a lawyer. A threat. A manipulation. I said, "I am not getting anything. If you want to get a divore, THEN you get your lawyer. I am not divorcing you. You will have to divorce me and then tell our three daughters (who adore me), why you are divorcing me.

Duuuuuude highly suggest you back up off this "tell our kids that you are divorcing me" BS. Holy "Way to use the kids' college fund on therapy for them instead", Batman!

The bottom line to this whole mess isn't what she is or is not doing wrong (or even to your liking): it's that what you are doing currently isn't working, so what are YOU doing to fix it?

Here's a hint: telling her what she's doing wrong doesn't qualify as YOU doing something. It's just more kvetching, which again - ain't working.

YOU. If you two can't work together well right now, then fine: what are YOU doing, today, to get out of this mess?
