I agree with elizabeth45tx.

You need to seriously sit down with yourself and ask yourself what you want out of your current relationship.
Make no mistake...relationships can be rekindled and the flames fanned again, but the window is short.

Half of all first marriages end in divorce in the USA...
Second marriages are even worse...
Dont get me started on third marriages...

The time to act is NOW.
DELETE your account, get your head back in the real world and express your love for your wife and ask her to forgive you and find out if she is game to try to fix things.
17 years is too much to throw away without at least a few good discussions.

No. Do not move out.

You need to have a better understanding of the relationship and what may be going on. So here's your homework.
Get the book

The five love languages. That should be a starter.

Then take a look at your sex life. Is she interested in sex? Are you? Who is the initiator? Who has the bigger libido.

Why is she feeling resentment about the relationship? Is it something you're doing? Or some dream of hers that was never fulfilled?

You need to talk.

Here are a few other books that may help. The sex-starved Marriage. The Relationship Revolution.

He has ran away like the little girl that he is. I'm starting to figure out why you women here don't trust us men with guys like that around, and around,and around, they go.

"I need space" - translated - I just met this really hot other guy, and want time and space to be able to f**k him, and you are my fall back guy
