I read your story on the reconciliation board and you gave me hope. I don't think a date will matter it is a mindset of when they are 'done' with us that is painful. Think about it for now... she is working w/ you even if she thinks she is just going through the motions, maybe something will trigger her into really giving this a go.
I am trying to think of a quote or where I read it... Maybe Homer McDonald or something like that but you can't let your emotions rule your brain (rebt).
These feelings have stirred my desperation in somehow saving our marriage, because I let my emotions define that day as the day we are OVER, no point of return.
