She seems to think that we should have completely fixed all the problems that brought us to this point before. Problem is, these are old problems (mother in law problems, communication) intensified by the fact that neither of us have been able to really connect since the birth of our daughter. I went through (and still am) a mild case of depression, so did she with post part. Basically boils down to not making enough time for each other, poor communication, chronic fatigue (which leads to temper flare ups) and needs not being met. However, behind all this is a strong love that I have for her. Don't get me wrong, we've had great times. How do I convince her that we can make it work. I do love her with all my heart!
