    Sounds like she made all the decisions.    I am sorry that you find yourself in this boat, and that she did this to you.   Is she least bit sorry?   Does she want to reconcile?  Or is she telling you not to let the door hit you on your way out the door?   How old is your daughter?

    This is just one more story of a spouse deciding his/her own personal needs are more important than the needs of the family "they created".    You are really lucky that you got your kid and didn't lose her too.  

    I believe divorce should be easy and cheap.   If you want to leave without just cause, just do it.   All you get is the clothes on your back, and you still have to send your kid half your paycheck.   If you want a divorce for just cause, then they have to leave with just the clothes on their back and still send their kid half their paycheck.  
    The divorce rate is sky high and unacceptable in my book.    People are destroying their finances, economic opportunities, children, and spouses because "they" aren't happy.   Well too bad.  Life's a bitch and then you die.   Should have thought about it before you made a family.    

    Best of luck to you.   How old are the grandparents?   Room for you to permanently live with them?    Would greatly extend their ability to be self-sufficient in their own homes.   A family care giver might be a solution for everyone - depending on age.    

    What we need is a Democrat in the White House.
