A consistent point throughout here is the need to work at your marriage. True. But when I was very depressed and considering a divorce a friend asked "would you be happier alone?" I got divorced. You work at a marriage because in the long run it's worth the sacrifice and effort. When it isn't you do both of you a favor by moving on. There is no perfect marriage- it's a matter of degree. If the good outweighs the bad, treasure that and build on it. If the opposite is true, and you have not been able to change it, life is too short to spend it unhappy.

I had the stock black TJ, my buddy had the big red RAM 1500. By the way, you didn't miss anything Sat. night we all just sat and stared at the fire and fell asleep one by one. No one said a word, we were all to tired from wheeling.

And another little chip here... aww nuts, oh well, it's just another little thing. And another chip here... dang it, why aren't they more careful with this, look at all the chips and dings! And before you know it, you have a pile of rubble.
Amen brother. I let the little things get to me for way too long until there was no way to get back to a good place (recently divorced). In hindsight none of it was important enough to ruin a marriage and separate a family but somehow it all added up to that.

To the OP, everybody needs to vent. Be careful who you vent to and what is said. If you talk to your family it affects the way they see your spouse. Same with friends and co-workers. They start treating your spouse differently, she'll notice and it's another log on the fire. If it goes too far you may have to avoid friends and family as a consequence. Best of luck to you.

X10. My brother did this with family, then made up with his wife and now I am the only one in the family that still talks to them. Not everyone understands venting....
