What did you do? Apply the 180, Last resort and be the best you could and what for time to pass and her to come around?

She is 9 years younger (37) and is hung up on a fairy tale marriage and has compared us to another couple who are good friends that she thinks "always" get each other. I know for a fact that she is wrong bc talking with both of them together and separate about our sich they have and have had issues and stuck it out.

I wish the wife of the other couple that she occasionally talk with would just lay it out and say stick it out and work on it.
