I am in my 30ís and have a little situation in my hands. I have been dealing with I believe is a mentally abusive wife. She fits the profile that so many women in these discussions have. The main problem is that we are both of strong character, and when we get into arguments, things get heated up and she always threatens to call the cops and make something up. Recently, however she called the police and provided false allegations of strangulation. Now, Iím fighting to keep my job and donít think I will ever be able to live with her again. Iím in the process of starting counseling and stuck with the dilemma of either filing for divorce or working things out. The only reason I would think of working things out is for the sake of my newborn (5 weeks).
My wife is a really good, down to earth person who has excellent qualities, but at the same time think has some deep underlying issues. Iím just so stressed with what is going to happen to my job (law enforcement) that I havenít really have time to think about it or just choose not too. I have read many discussions and heard from some many people that I need to look to the future and decide what Iím going to do, then to dwell on the past. Iím just torn apartÖ.
