Question #23: I live in Texas and my wife of 22 years wants a divorce because I hit her…I was going thru a big depression at the time. I do not want to get divorce because we have a 10 year old girl which I love very much.. Every time I get close to her all she say is she wants the divorce.What can I do to give her a hard time if she does get a lawyer???

From what you have told me, I believe that you should both first try marriage counseling to see if you can improve your marriage relationship and stop hitting your wife. There is no excuse for either spouse physically or mentally abusing the other. If you have experience serious depression, you must seek professional help and not destroyed your family and physically harm those you love.
