Thank you once again for the support. I am going to be brutally honest about my life. Its time I start to deal with everything. There are a few swears, I do
apologize in advance...
I've been with my partner for 17 yrs. We are NOT legally married because he doesn't "feel like it".
We have 4 children. My eldest daughter has hooked up with a guy who is 11 yrs older, who has 4 kids with 4 different women who he pays no support to. They have been
together over a year and our daughter is well aware that we do not approve but we support her the best we can. We advised her, or more like I begged her not to get
pregnant. I was hoping the relationship would end rather quickly but she informed the family that she is 4 months pregnant. She is beyond over the moon happy but
with his track record I do not think this is not going to end well. Emotionally my daughter is not ready to be a mother, especially not a single mother.
Our son is a wayward soul and it breaks my heart. As soon as he hit high school he got into drugs and skipped school and ran away from home and is now living with
some girlfriend and her parents. This is where my partner really excelled in parenting. He always went to bat for our son. He was the one pleading to give our son
just one more chance. He was the one that would call the police to try and get some sort of help for him but it didn't work. I hope he is alright, I miss him so very
much. He needs to be in rehab but there are no free programs without a waiting list of a year.
Then we have twin daughters. They seem to be typical teenagers and don't cause any real problems. They are going into high school next year and it scares me.
My partner has an issue with not wanting to work. In 17 yrs, he has worked 3yrs. He has a sense of self entitlement. For some reason he does not feel that he needs
to work. But the worst part is that his mother thinks that is okay. She will give him money anytime that he wants it. She will pay our rent, etc. I ask him what is
going to happen when she passes on, what is he going to do in his old age? I have a stellar work record. I've never been fired and have had 2 jobs in 10 years and
I've worked one way or another since I've been 14 yrs old. My current position I've been at for 5 yrs and I have never had a sick day, I suck it up and go in. I
teach my children good work ethics and my partner does not!!! Its sad!
My partner is not a supportive person. He hasn't said that he loves for 8 or more years. He will hug me to lead into sex. No birthday gifts, no Christmas gifts, no
picked flowers, nothing. He won't go out of his way to even make me a coffee, but I have to stratch his back after my 9 hour shift. 6 years ago, I made the worst
mistake of my life. I had a EA with someone who had been my friend for over 25 yrs. It moved into a PA, I was physical with him maybe twice when I needed to end it
and I told my partner. As much as I show him I am remorseful and I feel extremely guilty he will rub it into my face every chance he gets. He has told complete
strangers, people who have never met me that I cheated on him. He has told single female friends that I cheated on him. I explained to him the reason why I did it
was that he told me I was beautiful and he would treat me so wonderfully. That was the only reason. I wanted to feel loved. I so regret it. And I can't get over the
guilt that I feel.
The OW is a single mom who has had a hard life. Her mom committed suicide and unfortunately she found her mom's body. She has 2 sons with 2 different dads. She
likes to cause drama and shit on Facebook. She will drag anyone's name around if you get into it with her. I don't ever know who she is trashing on Facebook but I
can't help but feel sorry for them. She has a lot of trouble with her eldest son. Last summer when our sons went camping with us, she told me that she raised a
hammer above her head and threatened her son because he was mouthing her off. I was speechless. I just walked off. I've never seen her in a stable relationship and
likes to say on Facebook that she doesn't take seconds or other women's men. Whatthefuckever!
As I mentioned I am getting all incoming and outgoing texts from his phone. Obviously he does not know this but I did share that I received one of his messages to her
by mistake. The message was sent on Mother's Day and he told her that she was the sexiest, hottest mom that he knows. Wow, ruin my day!!! So, I asked him about it
and he threw my A into my face. Basically since I did what I did, he has a free pass to do whatever he wants.
He tells her that she is pretty. I get nothing. He encourages her and when I triple my commission in a month, I get "yeah, great"
Plus, he disappointed me greatly when after 5 mths of planning a trip he says he isn't going because his mom said we shouldn't. This trip was on my bucketlist. I
made a dream a reality and he fucked it up for me.
He goes and sees her everyday. He texts her all day long and tells her exactly what is going on. She will ask. He will heavily flirt with her. She will say
nothing. There has never been any sex talk between them. Example, ohhh baby you were amazing. Nothing like that.
My immediate concerns...
I have booked 2 weeks off of work. One week in July and one in August. The week in July, we go camping while our girls go to a sleepover camp. This time is very
important to me. I do nothing but drink, hike and chill out for a week and not worry about anything. This is the time OW came down last year with her sons. This year
it appears she has invited herself to camp with us. She has no reason to be there, our sons are no longer friends. Our time in August is more family when our girls
camp with us for a week. I don't know what to do. I deserve this time. I do not take any other vacation time throughout the year.
My twins are starting high school in a few months. How is this going to mess them up at an already stressful time for them. Everyone wants a seperation or divorce to
be as painless for the children as possible.
His mom is very opinionated. She exclaimed that my daughter should have had an abortion. Holy hell, I was speechless. So was he. My concern is that when this all
comes to light, she will laugh it off. An EA? What silliness!!! She would tell him to tell me to quit fussing. Or, she will get nasty and tell him to kick me out
and take the kids and she will pay the lawyer. How can I go up against that? My mom does say that I have the upperhand because I know whats going on and have proof.
So, can you see why I'm tired? His mom, himself and OW has finally broken me down.
I ranted a bit... thanks for reading
