Of course we'd end up with a shared custody thing, but I wouldn't want her to pit the kids against me like that. Just so much stuff going through my mind. Thanks for the well wishes.

She said that she's willing to work through the atheist issue, but what she's really upset about is how bad our marriage has become. I told her that we can start marriage counselling and I'll do what I can to make her feel loved. But, here's the part where I think your dead on, Kiwi. Last week her sister found out that her husband was cheating on her. Before my wife came to talk to me she looked through my email and found a conversation I was having with someone from Recovering from Religion. The person from RR was female. She says that she'll be ok if I want to connect with a RR group, but she insists that I don't email anyone that's not male. I can understand where she's coming from on this, so I've cut off communication with that person. Not feeling loved, I have secrets, and now email conversations ... you're right. She's feeling cheating on. Well, today, I'm feeling more optimistic about our relationship. I know that marriage is going to take a lot of work, but now I feel that she's willing to work through it with me, and that gives me hope.
