Mr. Beerman,

This is not looking good.
I am not going sugar coat this one.
She like things the way they are.
It is possible that no amount of counselling will work.
I dragged my ex to see two therapist and she made sure it was futile.
It seems like the your presence is border-line optional in this marriage.

Divorce is an industry and it is stacked against you the primary breadwinner. And with kids in that age bracket. Her earning power - compare your W2 with her's for the last few years.

The reason I am bringing up this is you may end up there. If you can deal with the worst outcome, then set some measurable goals and time-lines to make changes.

I don't have a solution but I will drink a lot more beer for you.

Well, Beerman? You've had a lot of advice - most of it seems to be of the same opinion. Maybe more than you bargained for. What are you thinking? What will you do?

The following has happened:

He's sleeping on the couch
He's been cut off
His wife is on an expensive shopping trip to NYC
His Fat Tire was given to a homeless man

Basically, his balls are in a vise, and she's turning the lever 1/4 turn a day...........

I haven't been following this thread as much as I used to but one thing that I have noticed is that Beer Man has stopped posting. Did someone say something to piss em off?

Be nice now folks.
