I am in the process of a divorce with my ex, who is the acting father of my 11 yo and bio dad of my 4 yo. We were together for 10 years, and in that time he never had a job for more than a year, and would often go months/years without one, forcing me to work 2 or more jobs. There are a million other irresponsibilities, but it would take to long to list. We had been having issues and had separate bedrooms for years. I re-met my childhood sweetheart and we fell back in love. To be honest, I had always thought of him as the one I should have married who got away. I told my ex that I was going, and I make sure he sees the kids, and often run errands for him every weekend when I bring him the kids, since he has no car and no way would I let them ride with him anyway, he drives terrifyingly.. He is persisting in acting like a total jerk, and saying things that are just enough truth to deny the lies, kwim? I am just sick of it. It hurts my kids, and that makes me killing mad. To top things off, my mother, who used to be very close to me, sides with the ex. I know there is no answer, and I do have an awesome man who supports me and the kids and treats us like gold. I don't expect any quick fixes, just needed a safe place to vent and not be judged. Thanks for reading this far.
