   General Questions:
My wife and I have had a shacky marriage from almost day one. We are now at the point to where we are not talking to each other, and I am seeking seperation. I know deep in my heart that it is wrong to divorce, but I do not want to face going through a shaky marriage for the rest of my life. My mom has endured this for the past 20 years of her marriage, and I do not want to face the same fate.

Yet deep inside, I feel that the Lord is calling me to die to myself, and be a servent to my wife. I can not comprehend this. Why would God call me to do this? And for what purpose? How has this helped in my mom's case? I still to this day feel scarred from all of the tension and turmoil that I endured growing up in this kind of environment.

I apologize for my rambling. I just feel so much hurt, and anger right now, and do not know what to do.

Hi, I just got out of a situation just like yours. Have you tried a christian counselor yet? Do you think she would be willing to do this? I went through the same thing for almost nine years. He even divorced me once, then came back and wanted to marry me again. I did, but that was a mistake. I am really paying for it now. I gave him the option of counseling he said yes but when it came right down to it he refused.
Try asking about the counseling and mention (maybe ) that this is a last chance for you guys, and see what happens. Keep praying for her though. I felt the same way you do, that this is right in the sight of God, Read 1 Corinthians 7:10-16 and see if that helps any. God doesn't expect us to stay with someone who doesn't want to really try, or wants to go ahead and live the way they want to even at the expense of the relationship.
I will keep you in my prayers, God Bless
