1/8/2014 I’ve turned comments back on for this post but don’t be shocked if I don’t respond and don’t be shocked if I do…
I'm wrestling with whether to ask my husband for a divorce.
He hasn't cheated on me, I'm sure about that, nor have I cheated on him.
If you are hesitant to open up a dialogue on your own, you can work with a couples counselor to explore these issues.
Divorce is a big step to take, with logistical, emotional, and financial ramifications, but if the two of you are open with each other, explore options together, and ultimately come to that decision together, the chances of retaining the positive spirit of your relationship are significantly greater.

Figuring out which path is for you should be, at the very least, a conversation rather than a unilateral decision.
