After separation, is it common for the woman to 'string the guy along' as long as possible even though she knows that she will never reconcile with him? The context is that of a man with a good income, a good provider, etc... and a wife with 4 kids who does not work. What I ahve been told by a couple people is that a common strategy is to just lead him on a little but, make him think it could be worked out, and in the meantime, not have to change your lifestyle for divorce. I have heard of this going on for 2 years. And me, like many I suppose, understand the issues, and do not blame her for initiating the separation, but was also shocked and unbelieveably hurt. But no so much anymore. It's not a criticism either, I see it as self preservation. What I want to know, has anyone ever actually 'worked it out' in a situation like this. Please see my journal for some background. I don't want to fall into a common trap.
