Wife did not try to make it work. I know washington is a no fault state. But to many people get divorced. Marriage is about commitment. So I want to teach my wife a lesson an sue her Or she can go to marriage counseling with me. I know i cant sue her if we are divorced so what do i do to get this lawsuit going?
Do yourself a favor and do not try to file such an action. Not only will the court dismiss your lawsuit but they will award her costs and attorney fees for a frivolous action. You will not only not teach her anything but will end up being on the wrong end of things.
People are not longer required to attempt to "make it work". If she wants out she get out and you might as well resign yourself to the inevitable and look toward what assets you can acquire. I suggest you get past your obvious anger and hire a lawyer to protect you. Yo follow his or her directions, get this thing resolved as soon as possible and move on.
Washington, as most (if not all) States has done away with lawsuits such as you are describing and have gone to "No Fault" divorce states. Larry is correct that if you did file such a lawsuit, it would not go well for you. If the marriage isn't working, you can file for a Divorce or a Legal Separation, but "fault" will not be taken into account when dividing the community (assets and debts) and setting child support, etc.
