Either way, if there is relationship there, then I don't see the point in you having to continue the marriage simply because you want to wait until you are more successful. That actually sounds a bit vindictive. You need to be happy with yourself and find success regardless of her presence. Of course it would be an amazing scenario if your wife was there to support you and help you a long the way, but that is going to require some communication, compassion, and understanding. There are alternatives to working this out, but if there is just no attraction or effort to do anything on either of your parts, then there will be no positive results.
