Hello,
My wife recently told me that while she loves me, she now regrets marrying me. Primarily do to her wanting to be alone and missing her prior life single. We are newly reads and only half a year in.

I could uses as many of your prayers as possible. Please and thank you.

Prayers for you and your wife!

Do spend time talking this through and perhaps consider seeing a Christian counselor. Whatever you do - don't upset yourself or tear your heart out with recriminations. IF it turns out that you and she go your separate ways, that is not the end of the world and again, it would not be your fault.

Even with the best of intentions, one could be married a very long time and then realize that one could have, and should have, married someone else. I've been there - still am.

I would recommend you pray the Akathist to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, which was written by Orthodox Catholic.

The miracle which initiated this beautiful devotion was the healing of a marriage on the edge of divorce: link. [udayton.edu]

Thank you all. Things are looking a bit better. I have been especially praying to the Theotokos (including the Akathist to her under the title Undoer of Knots).
