Re: Is Divorce the Answer?
Is Divorce the Answer? No, it's the Question. The Answer is YES.
If your husband won't stand up for you, you don't really have a husband. If he agrees to counselling immediately to learn to dissociate from THAT family and focus on YOUR family, don't waste any more time. If he does agree to MC, set a time limit to see real changes, even if only in your own mind, rather than issue ultimatums before it's truly over.
Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
