This is my first post about anything personal and I looking for a bit of perspective here.
I have been married for five years and this last year has been difficult as my wife has suffered some life changing illnesses which masked our true relationship troubles. About two months ago I get an email stating that she can not live like we have been and she is going to take the kids to her parents and when I started asking questions she pointed out some of the issues I have struggled with for the last few years. Well, this was a wake-up call for me since I wasn't truly aware of her unsettling unhappiness in the relationship so, I immediately started working on these things. During this time she has moved to her parents (because she cannot afford an apartment at this time) and cannot seem to return any emotional gestures or reassure me that she still loves me. She says she doesn't know what she feels and hasn't been able figure out if she can continue in this marriage all the while I am home alone working on me and my stuff.
There are some details that I left out but that pretty much sums it up so, my question(s) is:
Is this relationship over?
How can I keep myself from resenting her actions?
Should I end it or give her a time line?
