I don't want divorce. And I don't mind being threatened. It's just words. I can let go of resentment pretty easily.
My kids are 2 and 7. I don't think I could put them through that. I have to protect them. I can't let them think ill of their mother. Ever.
I would take the fall for the marriage failing before that.
Maybe she's just trying to hurt me. Maybe it's just emotional retaliation. I don't know.
How do people get through this shit?
