Hi people - I am 35 years old and thinking about separating from my wife. We have a 2 year old child and we have been together for 12 years. Our relationship had ups and downs mostly due to me trying to get her to bond more with my family and she being ignorant to my needs. She has anger issues and has disrespected me multiple times even in front of either of our families. The bridge for me was crossed when she accused me of domestic violence even though she was the one hitting me. I see her often yell at our 2 year old and finds nothing wrong with it . I don’t know anyone personally who has been separated or divorced and I know my partner will make my life incredibly difficult when I will tell her that I want to separate. I know there is no other way and I keep finding excuses to stay just for a bit more for my child who I love to bits..please help..
