      realized if he didn't put in effort, nothing would change. i told him that it was in his hands nad if he wanted to work on our relationship, it was up to him. I'd go to therapy with him or try things (within reason) to work on it. It took labout 2 years. and I swear, the day I decided I was done, started looking for a place of my own and getting things in order to live on my own, take care of dc, etc, he called me from work to say he'd made an appt with a therapist. I went bc i told him i would. And even in our first session, I told them both that i was pretty done. The therapist even said that's fine, if not to bring you together, these sessions can help ease the separation. 4 years later we're together and expecting a baby.
