I see some things never change. While you can't change your wife, it is within your power to STOP enabling her behavior. I have read all of your posts. It's just so sad to see what this woman has done to your head. Please don't push friends and family away. You really need them in your life.

She probably won't get much alimony or child support out of you at this point. Even then, it would probably be of short duration. However, keep hanging around for another 15 or so years and it will be a big factor--possibly higher percentage of your salary and PERMANENT.
