[sarcasam]Yeah, and the atonement was for naught, and we must save ourselves through perfection.[/sarcasam]
I was just quoting what Jesus said. Whether I believe that or not was not stated, so there was no need for snarkyness.

You can't really divorce anyway. Jesus was against divorce.
32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
1 Corinthians 7
10And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
So you have to work it out. Maybe go to couples counselling.
I hope it all works out. Sorry that things seem to be falling apart.

It is a bible verse though, so it doesn't pertain just to members of the LDS church.
Here to me it says if my husband chooses to leave I am not under bondage as we are not married in the temple. He is not LDS.
Not really. It is only if the wife is unfaithful. You need to cheat on him first.
I have read your references before over and over and the only thing I can get out of it is if someone is leaving because they want to be with someone else or are with someone else, not work it out with their spouse then that is where I see the problem.
If I were to go for the divorce I know it would be for the wrong reasons. If he chooses to divorce then that is his choice. Everyone is free to choose.
Sometimes I wish he would go but that is wrong. Some days are really good and I have felt that maybe we will grow old together. As I think that then we go through another problem. I keep telling myself to endure. Pray as hard as through the good times as the bad times. Gets discouraging as I slack off needing Him then come scrambling back like crazy when it gets hard. Shows me how imperfect and for a lack of better word lazy I am. Today I wanted to talk to someone but I'm sick of talking. I wish I could talk to him. He came home around 2am after partying. I chose this life and face the ultimate regret. I didn't choose someone that had the same values that I had because I wasn't practicing them. I didn't till after we were married and had kids did it become important now to do it.
What to do, kick myself and move on with life. Just wish I could do better so I wouldn't feel like I hadn't given it my all if he leaves. I wish I had a true companion that worked on our marriage and family together. This is so hard.. sick sick sick of it.
