Re: Wife says she need time alone.
Does not sound good. If she wanted to rekindle the spark she could do it at home. Whenever my wife and I feel like the spark is going away, we set up two date nights a week and sure enough, in a few weeks we are back in the saddle again. Moving out probably means she wants to date other men, if she has not already done so, and compare you to them to see if she wants you or them. If I were you, I would remind her that you will take it to mean that you can date other women and then do so. From what you said, it should not be hard to find someone who likes you more than your wife loves you.
P.S. - I did the same thing your wife wants to do when I had a girlfriend that I was falling in love with. Gave me the ability to see my wife and girlfriend in the same week without guilt. I started to push my wife away. I was young and stupid. I came to my senses and went back to my wife with a parting gift of an STD from my girlfriend. That would have ended it anyway.
PPS. - I never knew a couple that got back together after alone time. Alone does not help you to get closer to your spouse. It gives you freedom to see your boyfriend. It is basically a halfway house to a divorce. You are her safety net in case things do not work out.
Many prefer to drown in a pool of their own morality rather than seek the safety of a different morality when the choice is monogamy or your marriage.
