I've not been here continuously - just two and a half years this time around. I wasn't aware you could get residency here after a certain number of years if you were married to a Taiwan national.
I've done a little reading and see now there can be negotiation in a divorce in which the party being divorced has a lot of leeway to move. Well, it's nice to know anyway.
Chinese lessons would be great, but not until I have a steadier source of income. My understanding is they don't come cheap.

You're right about the avenues for conflict resolution. Those all work.
I'm not a marriage counselor, but couples who seek guidance impress me. I guess my wife and I are resigned to the fact that we co-exist peacefully (3/4 of the time) with an ever increasingly wide array of differences/preferences. We're past the ten-year mark with two sons. Our work, taking care of the boys' wants and needs and our own selfish pleasures occupy our time. I know we both have a lot to say to each other that never gets said...
Stiffupperlip's situation makes me wonder if I should just switch my visa over from marriage to APRC in case of a divorce one day. I've thought about switching it before, but it seems like bad luck.
