I'm truly sorry that you are going through so much at this time of the year especially. It is hard enough to go through a divorce, without the holidays being linked to it. You are a fair and caring man, that much comes through every single post that you make here. It seems that most divorces become about taking everything one can get, instead of remembering the partnership that once existed and wanting what is best for one another, despite the marriage not surviving.
I'm sorry that your wife seems to be stuck in that position right now. You will be okay Whitebeard, I truly believe that and that you will find a partner in time who is deserving of someone as caring as you are.
