She Cheats, Then Freaks

She Cheats, then Freaks

Robin:

My wife had an affair for several years and when I found out she told me she wants a divorce.  The marriage was not good for a long time so after I got over being cheated on, I was fine with the divorce.

I met someone and started dating and here’s what’s weird: my ex totally freaked out.  She has been verbally and physically abusive since discovering I have a girlfriend and for the life of me I can’t understand why.

Should Stepdad Get Parenting Time? Part 2

Should Stepdad Get Parenting Time? Part 2

UPDATE!

Jim continues to badger Brian, as does Jim’s son (who derives his income from Brian’s dad).  This sudden interest in Brian is a little odd, since Jim is suing to force Brian and his mom out of their home AND asking the court to award him, a wealthy man, attorney fees.  

Brian remains nonplussed.  This story will be updated as appropriate.

Dear Robin:

I was in a ten-year relationship and marriage with a man (“Jim”) who recently left the marriage abruptly.  

I’m not sure exactly what put the final nail in the coffin of our marriage, but the last fight we had was because I could not believe my son Brian was not invited to my stepson’s rehearsal dinner.

Unhappy Bride (or someone is trolling me)

Dear Robin:

I am 27 years old independent woman. I am from Russia, but I have been living alone in US for the last 5 years. I got married in city hall 3 weeks ago to the person whom I love 5 months after meeting.

My husband (42) is a business owner and right now his financial situation is not the best.  He can not support me at all, it makes me even more sad knowing that he used to buy expensive gifts and clothes for all his exes, but nothing for me. It makes me feel less important or less beautiful than others.  

He gets mad when I tell him about that. We fight a lot because of his financial situation.
