My mother-in-law’s forgiveness depends on my kneeling apology to wife and children

My mother-in-law stated she would only forgive me if I kneel and apologize to my wife and children, a gesture I find difficult to accept.

As a 34-year-old man, I have been married for seven years and have two daughters. I have recently encountered financial troubles, losing over VND300 million (US$12,300) in stocks and several tens of millions of dong in gambling, which resulted in a separation from my wife for a few months.

The stipulation for reconciliation from my mother-in-law involves kneeling and apologizing to my wife and children, a request I have resolutely declined. As a result, my wife intends to seek custody of our children and divide our joint assets valued at VND700 million. I have yet to agree to her divorce application, as I prioritize the well-being of our children.

At this juncture, I am faced with uncertainty about what actions to take next.

What should I do?
