Wow! I'm so glad I stumbled across this website....sounds like alot of good people with alot of good advise and support to offer!
i recently moved out from my boyfriend/fiancees home, and took our 15 month old daughter with me. Its been a financial struggle because I've been a stay at home mom since she was born(and loved it!) but was not appreciated at all. He wanted me to get a real job, as he put it. He hated working so much and accused me of "hogging" the baby, since I never went anywhere without her,and loved that as well. I didn't feel the need to have my own time. But we split because he was unhappy because I wouldn't go get a job and he felt my older daughter(his step daughter)was disrespectful to him, so he decided to go have an affair with a woman he works with! It took only 2 months before I figured it out, but after staying and trying to work things out for 2 months, I found out he was still seeing her, so I left him. We haven't filed a custody agreement through the courts, and he doesn't want to. He said he will not settle for any less than 50/50. Its been a month now and 50/50 is killing me....I miss my baby so much when I don't have her. I hate him for taking her from me. He gives me NO $$ for support, but says to let him know what I need for her and he'll go buy it. He is very controlling. He tells me to go get a job, but I haven't yet. I started classes for a associates degree in Early Childhood Education because I love children so much. Any advise for me on how to deal with my situation? Anyone have any comments or support? ↓
