Just got paperwork in the mail that the child is in fact his. Feel crushed. Can someone..anyone please let me know how you get through this everyday! I just feel sick to my stomach.

I am a stay at home mom and now will be going back to work as we can not afford to pay child support and I do not want my children to suffer because of this. Has anyone here ever sued OW?
My grandmother told me to fight for my marriage and not let the OW win. Right now I do not think my H is a prize worth fighting for. I am emotionally exhausted and do not have any fight let in me. I feel stupid and wonder what was the point in my making good decisions for our family when you do this. He says he does not want contact as he hates this child and does not think he will ever be able to love her.

WTF...I am baffled. I do not feel I have to take care of this child but...wow....what kind of life is she going to have with a ho for a mother and a man who hates her for a father. People make stupid stupid choices that other have suffer through. My H says he was drunk when it happened but I do not care. Wonder what he would say if I showed up pregnant with someone else's kid???
Based on all the post I have read I still don't get what is wrong with people who do this? Was I lonely? Yes...Did I feel bad about myself? Yes.....Did men approach me or try and hit on me? Yes! Did I respond..NOPE! Immediately said thanks, but no thanks. I am all prayed out and just pooped out. I wish I had a dollar for the number of times I hear you look exhausted....I want to say...no kidding...See what you look like after finding out your husband cheated on you and has a 2 year-old.

Please, there is a thread down in the I Can Relate section that specifically deals with OC's - you will probably get the best advice down there.

My only suggestion is file for CS now - before the OW can do it. She can only get a percentage of what's left over. I'm so sorry for you.

I agree with everything Tred said.

Please, please, please, file for child support. It varies from state to state, but in some states the first person who files is the person who gets the largest share. It doesn't matter if you're M or not, it doesn't matter who has the most kids, only who filed first.

I would suggest for right now you save the money you would spend trying to sue the OW. Use that money to protect you and your children instead.

I did...but did not get a response. Also she already filed and that is how I found out about the affair...USPS
So to recap...found out husband had ONS...got OW pregnant and she had already filed for CS in under 2 months. Amazing how fast life can change.

Poor child indeed. I don't have the mental strength to deal with that. I have to worry about my two little girls. The reason I would sue her is bc sh filed first it is really me only recourse to get some of the money she will be taking back. In Illinois I can sue her if I choose to stay or if I leave. Fill like I need to start a petition to have law changed to protect the children of the marriage as no on is thinking about them when affairs happen and from what keep hearing they get the short end of the stick in these situations. Just sucks!

Well, I know someone this happened to. For 18 years her husband worked a second job 3 nights a week to pay the child support for OC.

She refused to pay his child support, and she refused to let any of the household money go toward that other child.

Why should your children NOT have a stay at home mom, get put in daycare during Christmas holidays and ALL summer long because he f***** another woman!!

THINK. IT's HIS PROBLEM to provide child supp for this child, not yours.

I honestly would send him on his way and get into counseling for 6 months, then decide if I want him back or not, depending on my feelings at the time and what he has shown me during that time.

Shame on your husband for keeping this from you until you seemingly have no other choice. I recommend getting back to work. It's always better to be in a position where you're not relying on another person - that only creates complicated control issues. Save up as much money as you can and stay as long as you can. If you're still feeling disgusted with your husband at the point when you are a bit more self-sufficient and can support yourself, leave and get whatever child and spousal support you can out of him. This is a really crappy situation and my heart goes out to you. Please take care of yourself and focus on being stronger and more independent.

Homewrecked has an EXCELLENT point here:
IT's HIS PROBLEM to provide child supp for this child, not yours.
It really is his problem and he should be expected to deal with it without visiting any of the consequences on you and your children. If that means he has to work a second or third job to make that happen, well then that's the price tag attached to his drunken romp. I still recommend getting back to work and becoming more self sufficient. That way your skills don't stagnate and you'll have the opportunity to hide money away for you and the girls in the event you decide you indeed want to leave your husband.

I am so, so, so sorry. I can't imagine the devastation you must be going through -- this is SO much to deal with at once.

My husband has a child out of wedlock - I met him when she was 2 years old. Her mother was also a ONS. Dealing with another woman and child support definitely adds a layer of stress to marriage.

My husband had a vasectomy about 7 years ago. After learning of his affairs, I would have requested he get one immediately had he not done so already.

Thanks all. I am going back to work so I have more options for myself and children. If nothing else he has certainly taken responsibility for this and said that he will make a way financially for our family. I am very independent by nature and was ready to get back to work. My eldest child is not as independent as my 3 year old, so I stayed home for her. Right now I want my own income to show my girls that mommy can take care of them come hell or high water. My H loves his girls and would work multiple jobs to support us. I just need to do this for me and I think it will really help my self esteem.

Oh gosh, storm77, what a brick house that has landed on you recently. I'm so, so very sorry. I don't have experience with an OC (or at least to my knowledge right now) but wanted to just send you some virtual hugs. Try and focus on one thing at a time so as not to get too overwhelmed. For me, finding inspirational quotes, listening to music & trying to focus on the positives (children, support from friends/family, etc.) and controlled, regulated breathing.

((((storm77)))) My heart goes out to you. I wish you all the peace and strength you need as you deal with this.

If your state has a law that allows you to sue the ow, I would do it in a heartbeat! It's called consequences and she should have some for interloping in your marriage. She will be a thorn in your side for a long, long time.

Check out the I Can Relate forum, there is an OC thread there, you are not alone.

Storm, so sorry that you find yourself here in this situation. It keeps getting worse it seems.

But I heard what you said about wanting to work and about showing your girls that mom can take care of them. And I want to say how strong and brave you are.

And compassionate. You don't have to think about OC or its situation, but I hear your compassion there too.

Take care of yourself. Stay strong! You are doing a great job. Figure out if you want him along later down the road, when you are healing.

My only suggestion is file for CS now - before the OW can do it. She can only get a percentage of what's left over. I'm so sorry for you.

Actually, in Illinois, it doesn't matter who files for child support first. The laws are written so the family that is first in time come first, not the support order that is entered first.

The percentage of support for 3 children in IL is 32%. However, since your children were born first you would get the first 28%. The 3rd child would only get 4% until your youngest turns 18. But please, consult with a family law attorney. PM me if you need some recommendations.

Check out this website for more information. Knowledge is power and one of the things that you have control over. Many hugs to you honey.

You should definitely hire an attorney and get on this, Storm!

I am in tears...the good kind. I can not say thank you enough. This took a hug wait off my shoulders. One of the women I car pool with is a PD but I was unsure about asking her anything as I did not want to involve her. My first concern is always my children I will do and go through anything for them. Thanks for all the support and kind words.

What kind of a man hates an innocent child who only exists because of HIS stupid and selfish mistake. That statement alone would make me question his character. Seriously, it would be one thing to not want to be involved but to say that he actually hates a 2 year old who did not ask to be here is disturbing to me.

I'm sorry you have to deal with this terrible situation. I hope you can work this out to be most advantageous to and your children.

sg2008, completely agree. I have not had to deal with an OC situation but part of me thinks that in the early stages that might be a bit of a good thing

maybe there is less chance to bond?

Either way I feel so sorry for this OC I really do and my heart just breaks for you too Storm77. I think that going back to work will be a great thing for you to do.

Surprisingly starting a new job when things in life goes sour is proven to be a protective factor against Major Depression.


OW1 inadvertently let me know WH loves English breakfast tea. Never ever saw him drink it. And I never will.
