Not needing to get into it much on here, but he has screwed up one too many times. So we decided to begin the process. He is 1000 miles away and hasn't been around much the last year. Anyways, he has made very poor choices in the last year to affect this family. I am so sad and lost for my children, they are 15m and 2 1/2...the older already misses his dad and asks daily for him, where is he, answers the phone saying Hello Daddy when my phone rings.... This isn't what I wanted but know for me, I can't stay in a marriage like this. It breaks my heart for my children that he was selfish and not thinking his choices would affect them. I feel like a statistic now. I didn't want to be married to get divorced with babies in the mix of it. I know they'll adjust. As will I.
I guess my question is, as far as my oldest, what will I have to look for. How will this affect them? He then deploys in a year and a half or so. But knowing he is a 16 hour drive away it's not like he can just jump in a car and see them whenever he wants. Any knowledge and advice on the subject appreciated!
