Glad venting on this forum helps. I think we've all done a lot of that! It does help; it has spared my therapist many hours. lol
I certainly understand where you are coming from on the family issue. I have a very close family too. In fact, we live on the same property. We are always here for each other.
Your wife is definitely distancing you. I think it may go back to the death of your beloved dogs. When I lost my dear horse of 30 years, it took me a long time to stop grieving. I'm sure I put distance between myself and loved ones--and I honestly couldn't help it. As I said before, your wife needs counseling.
Start by going to individual counseling and always leave the door open for her to join you.
Hang in there!
