relationships

Man + Man + Woman = ???

So my wife has just informed me that we are going to be splitting up... no infidelity no other issues other than she wants to be on her own and live her life. I want her to have that. But it hurts so bad.... I am happy in this marriage and willing to do whatever it takes but she wants out... and apparently that's what's going to happen. I'll let her have whatever she needs but I still want to fight for us. Am I an idiot for this? Am I just a fucking coward? Do I have a chance? Or do I just accept things as they are and move on. I hate this with every inch of my soul. And I've never felt so alone in my life.

I AM 22 AND HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 5 YEARS AND SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I WANT TO END MY MARRIAGE TOO, MAYBE SHES JUST GOING THROUGH A WEIRD STAGE. I SAY YOU LET HER GO IF YOU FORCE HER TO STAY IN THE RELATIONSHIP SHES GOING TO END UP CHEATING ON YOU OR SOMETHING SINCE SHE REALLY WANTS "FREEDOM" DONT FEEL LONELY LOOK FOR GOD

We've just passed our 5 year as well. She says she has had these feelings since the day we got married. I wish I was stronger than I am in this but she seems pretty dead set on ending things. We moved across the country a year ago and ever since things have been difficult for her... career change for her as well. And she has a VERY strong group of friends which I'm super happy about but I have no one other than her (probably part of the issue). She is free to go when she needs because, when it comes down to it, her happiness is my biggest concern. Thank you for your words they mean more than you know. It's just nice that someone heard this.
