Well, He answered my anxiety with a most agreeable and hilarious resolution
The husband and wife. Things are static right now.
The husband has admitted that he was a tool. And has apologized and has tried to atone, but she is too hurt to accept or acknowledge. He spent over 10 years not emotionally supporting her and not being there for her and their son, because he was too busy making a success of his career so he could better financially support her and their child. And she spent ten years learning to take his financial help and do without his physical and emotional support.
Now having achieved a certain amount of financial success, and he now has more time to spend with the family. He wants to be there, make up for not being there in the past, and she doesn't want his physical or emotional support and all she knows is how to use his financial support.
He wanted his wife not to need him, now she doesn't want him. He was terribly ambitious and a tool and she is terribly hurt and unforgiving. What a mess!
Scripture to keep in mind
Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.  My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
