  • He decided he had to start sleeping with a 19 year old and I was not going to paly seconfd fiddle. But more importnatly in retrospect we were 2 very different people, we fought a ton, and neither of us would've ever been happy together.

  • Drug abuse and cheating. I probably could have worked through one or the other but not both.

  • Two things.

    #1 We had been together for 14 years... since I was 14 years old. We grew up and grew apart.

    #2 I was sexually assaulted in my work place and most would call it rape. I told him and he took it as I was getting some behind his back so he then proceeded to tell me all the stories he had about getting some behind my back for the past 14 years. Thinking he was getting even. I had never been so offended or hurt...

    I don't think he deserves to even live after that.

  • Verbal, emotional, and the occasional physical abuse. He was a Marine...seems like it's more common for them.

  • my relationship w/ my son's father was full of drama from the beginning. He cheated, lied, was manipulative, controlling and would put me down alot. when he drank he got really nasty, and would call me every name on the book. it was alot of emotional and a bit of physical abuse. he almsot drove me insane. Now thankfully I am happier and have found comfort in God's hands. Now i am learning to let go of grudges and pray for him, because he is the father of my son and he needs to be well so he can be a better father.

  • Sick and tired of being sick and tired! I was always put last no matter what the situation or who was involved. Plus he didn't want to work, he stayed high, and couldn't see anything around the house that needed done just acted like he was at a Best Western.
