Last night my wife in all but name told me she doesn't want to be my girlfriend anymore. She is no longer attracted to me and doesn't love me. She would still like to be "close friends" because I am such a great guy and she enjoys my company.
It wasn't totally unexpected b/c we have not had sex in ~2 months.
Thankfully we have no kids, but we do have a dog who is extremely attached to both of us. Another complication is that we both work for the same company. Everyone there knows we are together.
Technically our current lease is in her name, so that apartment is hers. Fortunately, I own a few rental properties, one of them has a vacant fully furnished bedroom. I plan on moving there today and packed up my stuff last night.
However, the roads were incredibly icy this morning so instead of driving separately, I fucked up and drove us in together like usual. She's a terrible driver, not an excuse, I know I fucked up there.
She has been very sad and texting me all day. Tried to give me an unreciprocated hug. I have been ignoring it all or at most sending one or two word replies an hour after three or four texts from her.
She will be out of town on business for a few weeks starting middle of next week. She has asked me to stay at the apartment and look after "our" dog. Normally I would take care of the dog while she is out of town, like she does when I am out of town, but we aren't together anymore.
What should I do? Charge her money for looking after the dog? Tell her to fuck off because technically she's not my dog and to be honest, I've had better dogs in my life. She is a good dog, though.
What should I do about work? Yes, I know I fucked up way back when by getting involved with a co-worker. If I invent a time machine I'll go and fix that, but for now it's ancient history. I Iike my job, she is currently looking for a new job, but isn't going to quit until she finds another one. Should I just wait it out there?
TL:DR Last night. My wife in all but name told me she does not want to be together romantically any more because she is no longer attracted go me. We work at the same company and have a dog
