SingleMommy....I have a home!    Posted 04-13-2002 at 03:50:04       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well, after much thought and prayer I finally made a decision...

I was leaving the home because the soon to be ex wouldn't go even though we were seperated...

So finally I decided I am not going to be nmice anymore. I kicked his butt to the curb! I am staying in my own house til the lease runs out in August. That will give me time to plan a real move better. Plus the kids can stay in their own home for now.

I don't know where the strength came from, he was SO angry!

I am very happy,

I don't have all the facts here so I won't make a judgement, unless single mommy cares to post them.
But why is the man always at fault? This guy may be I don't know, but please SM as Paul Harvey says tell us the rest of the story. I know a guy, he is a good guy, he let his girlfriend move into HIS house, he didn't know it but she was a little looney. She goes off the deep end and calls the law, the law puts my friend out of HIS house and lets her stay there. My friend tells the law he has guns in the house and he is worried with her being there with them. WITHOUT his consent the law goes into the house and removes HIS guns and keeps them, it took a lawyer and lots of money for him to get HIS house and guns back!

SIngleMommy- Here is the story...both sides :0)    Posted 04-13-2002 at 10:19:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
He came home one day and said I don't want to be a husband or Father anymore. I don't love you and if I had to do it over again I would not have married you. No reason why, just cannot handle the stress of being a "family man". He is not a horrible person, he would make someone a very good husband, but I don't think he should have had kids. I just wish I could have seen then what I see now so I didn't have to bring five children into it.

Anyway, there's the story. Neither of us are perfect, neither are horrible. But I felt the kids and I should stay in the house because

A) My Son has Autism and that change plus Daddy leaving is TOO much for him to handle all at once.

B) 1 bedroom apartments are easy to find here and fairly cheap but to find a 3-4 is almost impossible.

SM I have a 12 year old daughter with autism and what the doc's classify as sever retardation. Being a parent is a rough row to hoe with any child these days, but special needs kids drain parents emotionally, financially, and also socially. If you ever need to talk about the autism or anything feel free to drop me a line, or we can talk on the phone if you wish.

Like you I'd love to hear the other side of this story.

That is really great news SM!!

Not to rain on your parade but a word of caution. If he is that angry, you might think about a restraining order and DOCUMENT everything that happens and everything he says including dates, times, places. You might need it later.

I take it you are still looking to move this summer though, right? I'll keep looking around here. Already put out a couple inquiries. Just send me one of your round tuits and that will help a lot ";^)

Good for you SM. If he was any kinda man at all he would not have even considered staying in the house and forcing you and the children to go elsewhere.

Great news SM. All the answers for wisdom are within you. Just have to gather all the facts first, then you're qualified to make the best decision possible.

You became the expert on this one. Keep this up and you will never have to make a bad decision again.

Good Luck.
