How to cope with my wife who's "fallen out of love" with me?

My wife and I married over 27 years ago when she and I were 25; we’d known each other for three years. Our marriage has had its ups and downs--in many cases, the "downs" were provided by her unwillingness/inability to communicate honestly and openly and by my anger at same as well as my on-and-off depression. That said, we always had fun and shared love. In particular, I always stuck in there during arguments in order to try to get her and us to a point of honest communication. [more inside]

Help me to deal with the double edged sword of child support enforcement.

I just noticed another question posted re: child support, so while we're on the subject . . . I haven't received child support in more than 5 months and it was sporadic before that. Now my ex has stated emphatically that he won't pay until or unless he gets a job. That may sound reasonable to many, but I believe he's not actively pursuing work because he doesn't have to work - his wife is the primary breadwinner. [more inside]
