My wife has said this several times, and confirmed it again last night during one of our unhappy discussions. If we divorce, she wants to cut off all contact with me. We might see each other in passing, such as when I pick up the kids (my daughter is 13, son is 15). But it would just be "too painful" to see me in a different light. She thinks that me seeing the kids is enough.I try to reason with her that our kids will be affected very negatively under those circumstances. She does not agree. I just can't convince her that this would be very wrong. When my parents split up some 30+ years ago, my mom was so bitter that she cut off access to all my cousins, aunts, ancles, grandparents, etc. They were now 'bad people' with whom we had no contact. This is not exactly the same situation, but pretending that I don't exist seems very unrational. Am I correct???
