Re: What Should I Do - Wife Wants Space
I'm going through almost the same thing, GIVE HER SPACE. I choose to try and convince my wife she was wrong by crying, begging, pleading, yelling, and all it accomplished was her losing all respect for me whatsoever.
It may be too late for my marriage, because I kept telling her I could change, instead of just working on it. Show her that you truly want to change by going to counseling on your own, really work on yourself and stop worrying about what she thinks. One way or another, you have to better yourself, but know that she cannot help you do that.
BE AWARE, this is a 2 way street, she has made mistakes too. You cannot change the way she feels, she has to be in enough pain to change. Do not try to make her feel guilty, do not point fingers at her, do not act like I did, a wussy.
I promise, I may have played my part to destroy my marriage for good, I don't want you to make the same mistakes I did. I have some things I need to work on, but so does my wife, and it takes 2 to reconcile. All you can do is clean up YOUR side of the street, if she isn't willing to do the same, that's on her, and (I'm sorry, this is gonna hurt) YOU WILL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT HER.
Please read and re-read this, you will thank me later if you follow my advice.
