My wife of 8 years recently told me she wanted a divorce. I think I have been a pretty good guy, maybe some depression/low mood for a couple of years in the context of the challenges of starting a business. However I have since been treated and have never felt better. She comes from a very abusive background and has been struggling with a situation in which she is forced to deal with her abusive/formerly drug addicted mother. I feel she has lumped me in with her abusive family, despite my repeated attempts to let her know I am on her team, that we can work through problems together. I have read many self help books on "how women think" and realistically I AM one of those guys who leaves little notes around for her, told her daily how pretty she is, tried to kiss her when I left for work and before bed. She told me recently I don't "get her". SHe is now seeing a therapist and has rescinded the divorce statement to "I don't know what will happen. Should I continue to just back off? Am I a screw up? What is next? Help!
