Dear Abby: Kids are collateral damage in wife’s war on marriage

Dear Abby: My wife and I both served in the military. When she returned from Egypt 19 months ago, she dropped a bomb on me, saying she didn’t want to be married anymore. She said she had settled for second best all her life and that’s what she had done with me. She went on to say she knows there’s someone better than me out there, and she’s going to find him.

All the evidence points to an affair, which she denies — constant trips out of town, emails and phone calls. We are now living paycheck to paycheck. We have no more savings and I’m paying all the expenses when it comes to the kids. She retired a year ago and refuses to get a job worthy of her experience. The worst part is, our kids have suffered.
