Although compromising on every single issue is not ideal, but, start cultivating the habit of compromising on at least some things which may not always be of your liking.
I am from Ohio and me and my husband are not legally separated.
There are no guarantees in life.
It has caused tension.
Now come April I finally asked for a separation because I had sought advice from multiple people whom granted may have had ulterior pregnant womn having sex but at the time I think they were just being friends at the time.
A legal separation is much different.
Who is going to pay for what?
If you do that she will not think you really care about her.
I initiate any hand holding or kisses or touching.
