All she does now in her spare time is try to recruit people. She is never home. We have two kids. She spends $700 a month on products and makes only $250 a month.
Her so-called business is everything to her. She won’t get marriage counseling. She says she isn’t a quitter.
I want a divorce, but I hate the consequences of ending a 15-year marriage. I need help. It would be so easy to cheat, and I have been tempted more than once, but haven’t done it.
We are in our 40s, and I feel like a single parent. What do I do? I’m so frustrated. She is basically working for free and thinks she’ll be able to retire rich from it. — BRAINWASHED
DEAR BRAINWASHED: The business venture you have described may be a pyramid scheme. Many people have ended up with garages filled with inventory they can’t unload and nothing to show for it.
If she refuses counseling, then YOU should consider it for yourself, because what has been going on in your marriage for the last two years is unfair to you and your children. Then you can get a clearer picture of what your next steps should be.
