that given some marital issues and how he had been feeling revealed that he consulted an attorney six months ago regarding a possible divorce, how would that make you feel?
Without the long back story on all the issues involved, my initial feelings are that one only seeks such consultation if you have, in fact, decided a divorce is what you want and decide against it maybe because it is cheaper to keep her and you're more financially screwed with a divorce and "well, i love her enough and the financial uncertainty, let's just see how it goes."
Do people who are frustrated enough do this? Because to me, I don't think it's a normal option. You seek someone else like a good friend, a family member, how about the spouse you're having an issue with, or you tell her this is how you feel and what you want to do but work through it from there by other logical means like marriage counseling, etc.
