some thoughts 7-29 - after 1st counseling
Basic fact, my wife Marie is much more emotionally volatile and
expressive than I am. She can be very pointed and angry at me,
then later eat and sleep just fine. While I feel depressed
and upset for a long time. In July 2018, she expressed her anger
at me on at least 10 days. This can not continue much longer.
She herself, has self identified to friends as being an
The core of the disagreement is that my current estate plan will
after my passing, leave Marie with 2 1/2 million dollars. She
complains that that is not enough for her and she NEEDS the
additional $600,000 or so I have currently chosen to leave to be
equally split between our 4 good children. That intention
causes her great anger and jealously. She says she has talked
to an attorney, about divorce and property settlement. Yet
she wants me to first make all properties community property
to share equally with her.
Marie has been talking of her disagreements and angers with me
to her daughter, her sister, her brother, her mother, our exercise
instructor, and one of our mutual friends. Now, we have both said
things to our counselor / therapist. All of her friends and
advisors can choose to do as they wish, but I guarantee that
if Marie is encouraged to, or chooses to continue in this hostile
situation, things will change. She will not receive near 2 1/2 M.
