I finally told the wife that I am not willing to fight with her anymore. I'm tired of feeling like I am just a paycheck to her. I'm tired of feeling like I have to "ask my mommy" to do things that I like to do. Shit, I haven't golfed in over a year because of that ...I *get* to go play once a month? Oh, thank you so much!!! I'm so honored that you "let" me go - how SWEET of you!
Naturally, she's not taking the news well. Did I expect otherwise? I think she is in love with the "idea" of me being perfect, not the actual "me". We've tried therapy - she says we should try again. Why? The first time didn't help, and I was there, willingly, every single session to try to make my marriage work.
My biggest complaint is the way she talks to me. She talks at me, and not *to* me. Even my other friends are like "damn, is she always that rude?" when they hear her. But, because *her* friends don't feel that she does this, she "doesn't do it".
Dammit, for 5 years I've been arguing the SAME freakin' point - I can't stand undeserved disrespect! Maybe it's because she grew up with brothers, maybe it's because her first 13 year marriage failed miserably ...I don't know - I just know that I don't deserve it for doing NOTHING!
How can someone profess to "love someone SO much" and then treat them this way? Oh, I'm sorry, it's because she cooks, cleans and takes care of the kids...I forgot!

shoulda stuck with the glue..|
if you is looking for unbiased support, i can't help ya... i do tend to side with the men ....
so you are pulling the pin and she is not happy... oh well... seems you tried to make it work.. just do all you can for the kids now...
i doubt the little woman would care to know that where there is no respect, there really is nothing to save...no amount of therapy can change that......
