Re: Wife moved out (she needs space but says she loves me?)
If she is have depression and mental issues, she *COULD* be a danger to your son.
This could be an exit situation. As buying a condo *IS NOT* a way to spend a while to sort things out. Going to her sisters for a week or so = sorting things out. By doing this, and going for divorce... this creates the "break up" which would allow a respectable new MAN in her life to come along.
This is why it IS important to know for sure if SHE IS cheating on you or not. Cheaters may sometimes cut-off friends who are against the affair. If you don't bother to find out, and 3 months from now - you find out she just happened to start dating Donald, marketing VP. Well, it's not cheating since you are divorcing. But then you may always wonder. Then your son is hanging around this guy who might have broken up your marriage. Because Donald is making good money and while its okay for him to date a co-worker, it would get him fired if he's having an affair with a married woman. HUGE DIFFERENCE!
When my wife was cheating on me. She was at tears "I don't know what's going on in my head. I'm trying to work things out" and things got worse.
Ask yourself... Do you want your child, being co-raised by the guy who helped break your marriage? If she just has a mental issue, can it be dangerous? Therapy should be a requirement of some sort.
If any of this concerns you, then you'll need to be sure and then we'll help you find out.
PS: Its also possible that she had an affair with someone, who won't go to the next level with you married to her. So he puts her on PAUSE until divorce process starts. So she moves out and is torn between two worlds in her own limbo. Hence, you'll need to do research months before the move-out. Think people don't do thing kind of thing? You'll be surprised.
Her words have little value... just as it was odd for her to move out. These are red flags.
Supporting those who want to divorce or reconcile. Not every relationship is the same.
