Over 20 years ago, when I was going through a divorce, I read Uncoupling by Diane Vaughan. Apparently, every break-up has an initiator, and sometimes, that person is willing to spend up to 10 years convincing the other that they, too, are miserable. This allows “a mutual decision” that was really orchestrated by one, very patient initiator who doesn’t have to feel like the bad guy once the other partner is convinced. Seems you nailed it within minutes.
