Well, yes, but I think it was more because she was scared to be left on her on dealing with the kids. But she tried. I guess, I didn't understand her, but with no communication coming from her, I failed her. In hindsight, I should have been more patient and supportive, but I lost my way, also because of my abandonment issues. I have accepted my failures, but getting over them is completely different matter, especially because I still love her and it's difficult to accept it's over.Sounds like she tried to make it work for the sake of the kids. There is a lot to be said for that.
