My wife and I have been married for over 16 years. When we were dating and first married, she was sweet natured and so much fun to be around. Fast forward 16 years and she is almost the complete opposite. We have 2 pre-teen kids now, but she rarely wants to do anything on the weekends. All she wants to do is lay around and "rest" from the work week. On top of that she is confrontational with the kids and sometimes me. Overall we provide a healthy environment for the kids as I work around her emotions, comments etc as best I can to keep the peace. That gets us through day by day, but I am starting to feel sad and depressed because this is not how I want to live my life. I want a marriage that is with my best friend who I genuinely enjoy being around. She has a "crass" exterior shell now, not only to me, but everyone she comes in contact with. She says she needs to be that way to be treated with respect in todays society. I don't want to hurt her feelings, but if I met her today, I wouldn't consider dating/marriage with her. Divorce is my last resort, but this has been getting worse over the years and I dont know how to fix it.

I'm sorry to hear about your difficult situation. It sounds like she needs help and may be struggling with depression. I would encourage you to see a therapist who can give you feedback tailored to your situation, and to try to encourage her to see someone as well.

She might say she needs to rest but it can cover up her being depressed . How does she like her job? Has anything changed with her being sad, stressed out? Is she willing to take to someone?
