"Fake it until you can make it."

That is, act like you've let go, even if you haven't. And keep acting that way until one day you'll realize that it isn't acting anymore.

You (and the lawyers) need to separate the legal definition of "fault" from the moral definition of the word. You know he was at fault morally. Knowing that should be enough. Do not waste your time...

Add me to the "hell yes" pile! I always dated older...mostly because I was younger. I've dated 14 years younger than me and 10 years older. I had more in common with the younger guy. I wouldn't even...

Closure isn't something you get from someone else. Closure is something you *give* yourself. It might take you some time to get to that point, but ultimately it's up to you. {{{ hugs }}}

Write down exactly what he offered you and both sign it. It's not completely binding as an agreement by a lawyer, but it can show his intent if it comes up later. Then take *that* agreement to a...

I'd chalk it up to just a misunderstanding on both your parts. If it becomes a habit, then worry. But the occasional bump in the road is to be expected at this point. It's a very good sign that he...

Never listen to a word he says, watch what he does instead.

Honestly, I'd go with the temp agency. You need to find a job and presumably that means paying for childcare regardless. If you have good job skills, you'll be easy to place and they don't care that...

30% is what I used to put away. I'd rather have extra at tax time than be scrambling. And if you're earning interest on it (instead of the government) you can err on the side of too much.
