“I don’t know if what I did was right or wrong,” he said. “All I know is that I was at my breaking point, and I needed to do something to make a change. But now I’m questioning if I went too far. Maybe there was a better way to handle this situation.”

Another person wrote this comment, “Funny enough if she gets divorced she will do 100% house chores and cooking for her own place and will have to get at least a part-time job… how does she think she’ll be better off divorced? I don’t think she made the math yet… manipulative of her though anyway. You either want a divorce or not, it’s not something you use as a threat to get your way.”
