    Question for Rabbi YY

    Thank you, Rabbi, for your deeply insightful, objective, and compassionate guidance. In the context of dealing with mental illness within a marriage, especially when a spouse is diagnosed with a personality disorder, how does one navigate the added challenges? These challenges include the healthy spouse's struggle to maintain their own mental well-being amidst the chaos, the impact on the children, and instances of gaslighting. It seems professionals, including rabbis knowledgeable about such situations, often refrain from advising on whether the marriage should be dissolved. This hesitation persists even as the family dynamics grow increasingly complex, affecting everyone involved. Could you offer your perspective on how to approach these extraordinarily difficult decisions, especially considering the profound uncertainty and the wellbeing of the children?
