Hi everyone...I'm not sure if this is the right forum to put this in, but I am wondering if anyone else has had the same experience.
My DD is 21 months and my XH and I split up when she was 5 months old. I have a new partner who is absolutely wonderful and we are now expecting our first child in March. I told XH the news yesterday and he completely freaked out. He said that before my new child is born he will be taking me to court to get 50/50 custody of our DD. Currently we have joint custody, but she lives with me and he sees her quite a bit depending on his work schedule. The 50/50 thing is, I believe, just about power and about money. I think he is pissed off now that things are working out for me, and not for him. He is the one who left initially when she was 5 months and moved in with a new GF only 4 weeks after.
I realize that he is having a lot of emotions because I am happy and having more children with someone else (he has tried to get back together, while still with his GF, many times over the last year). I am trying to be understanding, but his rude words and threats of court are stressing me out SO much. He also was so rude when I told him...telling me to think of my life as a single mother with 2 children from different men, and how I was going to look...and that I was going to end up in a looney bin???? I realize he was just trying to hurt me, but wtf?!?
