This is very similiar to what I had happen to me in February. Happily married 16 years and then one day my wife tells me she wants a divorce because I am controlling and she wants out. I was shocked to say the least. I encouraged that we seek professional help, which we did and are still going to. It has been up and down since then and she is still not completely committed to the marriage, as I am.
I have learned a ton since D Day, including giving her space, keeping my emotions in check, being a better example, the 180 and most recently about the "Walk Away Wife Syndrome", which seems to be what she is going through.
Be strong, positive, give her space and if you see the marriage as a glass more than half full it will take time and patience.
