    Can I save my marriage when I was a jerk to my wife and everybody around me. Co workers family everyone I was a jerk to. Part of it was that’s how my parents, friends acted and my medication Keppra made me super irritable which isn’t an excuse. Because I was so short tempered w/EVERYONE I really didn’t know I was a jerk no1 said to me not 1 time that I was acting that way so I had no clue my wife who also said nothing in 11 years of marriage she finally wanted a divorce. We talked and I changed it’s been 2 years since I changed and became a livening caring husband. We are doing great we spend time everyday have fun she says I grew up and is happy with our marriage now. The only thing is she still isn’t ready to live with me yet. We are not divorced we love each other and I am always looking for ways to improve my self and our marriage. Any ideas on how to keep improving our marriage and my self so she feel comfy to move back in. We see each other daily about 20 hours a week. We are are affectionate. We have a 7 and 9 year old. I just want it to keep growing any ideas or help feed back good or bad feed back. I’m open to to listen to all.
