_Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Lance. If you're wondering about my credentials, my cousin's roommate's father is a psychiatrist plus I've been married and divorced five times. If that doesn't qualify me to give relationship advice, I don't know what would.
_The first question I'd like to tackle is when to throw in the towel.  That's an easy one, now!

_Look something like fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. If there's one thing I learned in school it was to follow the crowd.
_There is no hope for you. I mean if God thought marriage was important he would have mentioned it in the first couple chapters of the Bible, right?
_Sure you'll lose everything you've built over the past few years and your children will resent both of you, but it's worth it to be free right?  Besides, if the next relationship doesn't work, it will be even easier for you to quit that one too.
_Eventually you'll realize that all relationships are too much work and you can enjoy life alone with your pet and the internet chat rooms.

However if you insist on staying in your dead-end relationship, Next week I will begin to give you some advice on the best ways to make it happen.  Take it from me, I'm an expert!
