(i should have known...he was a sitting politician and a CFO when i married him) i was looking forward to a nice upper middle class lifestyle. instead within 3 years, he quit his job, wouldn't get another, dragged me into one cockamamie scheme after another, the house and car got repo'd, i ended up in bancruptcy from all the debt in my name. i ended up living out of one room in a friends house, making 5 bucks an hour as a supermarket cashier.
he 'controlled' me by controlling exactly how much truth he shared with me, and i spent many years not knowing what was true and was fiction. and i have been at or below the poverty level ever since he left me high and dry.
My sympathies to you, and most especially to your kids. Coming from a broken home is rough enough; when the parents aren't on friendly terms, it's much worse. Maybe you try to put on a good face in front of them, but most kids can tell regardless. Their best hope is to despise your ex as much as you do. That's unfortunate if they have to live with her some or all of the time, but at least there'd be a clear side for them to take.Stubblecat wrote:All of this is clearly the toughest crap I've ever been through in life. And since we have kids together, I still have to deal with the evil ex every couple of days. She makes me physically ill when I have to be around her, so I try to keep the correspondence though e-mail and texting.
