| | Wife never loved me. What do I do?
I have been married for almost 8 years and it has been a bit rocky at times. Now is one of those times. We have 2 kids, who can be hard work which adds to the stress on the marriage. My wife screams and shouts and has hit me in front of the children. I try not to, but I can't help shouting back at her, because I am trying to stand up for myself. She is constantly saying "we need to talk", which means she needs to vent at me about whatever she has found to complain about and never let me speak. She is constantly putting me down, and slagging me off to her family and friends in person and on Facebook. On her latest "talk", she dropped the bombshell that she didn't love me when we met, she 'sort of' fell in love when our daughter was born and fell out of love with me when she was taken ill with ataxia and apparently, I was horrible to her! She says she is now not in love with me and is only with me for the children. I have no idea what I am going to do as I am mostly looking after the children and my wife as she recovers from her ataxia and would hate to "leave her in the lurch" and leave my kids. But, can I go on in a loveless marriage for the kids' sake. I still love my wife but can I go on like this? She has said countless times that she wants a divorce and for me to pack my bags and go, but I love my kids and she has said that she would make it difficult for me to see my kids if we split up. Especially, if I had another girlfriend after her. Sorry for the long winded post! But, I have a lot on my mind.
