my wife wants to leave after 23 years. my kids are older now but im sure it will still affect them. i am so heartbroken i can hardly even function on a daily basis. we still live in the same house and do some things together but i think it just makes it worse when we have a good day. i really dont know what i am going to do without her, my heart hurts so bad i cant deal with it. At first she said she wanted to work it out but now she says its too late. why would god give anyone this much pain. We were married young and 2 years ago i thought i had the best life anyone could have and then one day she told me he has not been happy for 10 years. i was devistated, how could someone act that long, it only compiles the pain.
