I'm in the same boat. My stbxw is separating from me, saying she needs time and space to figure things out (her career, whether we're compatible). I feel if we dealt with a few issues we'd be able to more forward, but the separation is inevitable. We don't have kids, and I know that would complicate matters, but part of me wonders if it would have helped keep is together. Kids would have certainly given us someone else to focus on. It has been a rough 4 weeks.
