Thanks for this, nycindie - your words are ringing in my head over and over, and I know you are right.
She is going through some stress at work, trying to get a higher level job, so I dont want to add to her stress right now.
Mostly, I'm thinking of my son, who is only 7 now, he is the glue that holds us together at the moment. He is the light of my life, and I cant bear the thought of not seeing him every day.
Even worse, if we split and get alternate weekends for access, he'll land up going to that f*cking church every 2nd sunday
So I feel very very trapped
