Mary's moving out, definitely, at the end of the month.

A few days ago her dad said "All I want is that picture in the bathroom, the paper towel holder, and (some other thing I can't remember)".

Mary said, "You can't have the paper towel holder."

Her dad: "That's all I want. Everything else goes."

Somehow he has turned this situation around, not acknowledging his part in the failure of this experiment. Now Mary is under pressure to get her stuff out of the house. Mary was the one who said this thing isn't working out, but now it is looking, to him, like he is kicking her out.

After I moved out, left him, when my girls were three and five, he said something to me about how I could get him back if I did certain things. Suggesting that he left me, that I would want him back.

Whenever I worry that he will dwell on his insufficiencies and fall into deep depression, I need to remember that his inner world is no doubt miles away from what I may be imagining.
