Advice from a reader:
~On being the only one making an effort to save the marriage:
If someone really is considering leaving the marriage, one technique is to go find a good divorce lawyer and have an initial consultation, which is usually free. Also, find a good marriage counselor and have a session or two by yourself to be sure you feel you can work with him or her.
Then hand your spouse a business card from both, and ask which office he/she would like to meet you at. I know people who have saved their marriages this way. –D
