My wife and I have been married for 13 yrs. Our marriage started having problems about 5yrs ago. My wife would show very little or no intimacy toward me. Our sex life was almost non-existent. I had spoken to her about this many times before, causing arguments between us. Just recently we sat down and talked. I told her I felt she did not love me and I don't love her. I told her I had thoughts of leaving. She became very upset, sobbing uncontrollably. Three days later, she now wants, to work on our marriage, go to counseling, and do everything that I've begged her to do before. She apologizes consistently for everything, wants to have sex all the time now, says "I love You" at the end of every sentence. I feel that its all a con to get me to stay, but she insists that she is going to change and save our marriage. What do you think?

If you were dating, or engaged, I would tell you to leave. But you're married. And I believe that once you've made that commitment you should fight tooth and nail for it, and only leave when there is no more hope of fixing your marriage. If she's now trying, and willing to work on things, I think you should give it a shot. If she's still wanting to try, then there are still options. Only when the options have run out do I think divorce is the best option.0
