Our expert says:
Interesting how someone who in real life seems reluctant to talk, bit in the unreality of social media, is happy to chat around. Presumably it is the unreality of those chats, their anonymity, that makes him feel more free to chat ?
Is it not possible to persuade him to join you in marriage counselling ? If he could see that as a no-blame and safe place to explore and seek solutions for problems, maybe he could consider it ?
Otherwise, if he refuses to try to solve these, and/or if you are determined to separate, then though counselling could still help you to work out how best to do this and to protect all of you, isn't it a lawyer you might need to see if there are any formalities to be carried out ?
What do other readers, some of whom I know have been through similar situations, have to suggest ?
