Will left a comment for Dario
"As your emotions go up and down, Dario, there'll be times when that "devil's advocate" advice echoes in your mind.  Do you want that to happen?  It's going to be tough enough as it is.  You might consider…"

Stay strong my friend. I went through a veritable nightmare of a divorce a few years ago, lawyers financially destroyed me, but I didn't lose the most important things in my life, my kids. Life as a single father is difficult. Don't even think about divorce proceedings unless you're very serious. Things may be retrievable at this stage. No marriage is perfect and couples do work things out after worse things than this. Use rational thought and less emotion, difficult to do, but essential in my opinion. I sincerely hope that things work out well for you, John

As your emotions go up and down, Dario, there'll be times when that "devil's advocate" advice echoes in your mind.  Do you want that to happen?  It's going to be tough enough as it is.  You might consider whether continuing to read words like "It's over" and "She's banging him" is going to be good for you (!).  Just a thought.  (I put this here because I'm not trying to start a fight on that thread, but I still wanted to say this.)

"To continue on the state's rights line of thought: States shouldn't cede land to the federal government. Just makes things messier if secession were to occur."
