I am currently married to the most wonderful man. The only issue is his ex wife. She left him for the babysitter's husband several years ago. They cohabitate even though the BF is still legally married. She drinks heavily; as he does. Immediately upon finding out about me, she started email and text wars. She accused me of taking him from her (even though she was living with someone). She accused me of viscious attacks on my character such as being a lush and drug addict. She called me 'fat', 'slut', 'white trash' in front of her children. She is a vile person; very unhappy. She lies constantly. She assaulted me a few months ago. Even with injuries I could not get help from the legal system. I was denied a case; denied a protective order even with threatening text. She is blocked from my phone but continues the harrassment through my husband with emails and text. She makes our visitation unbearable with the boys who are age 6 and 8. She tells them constantly they do not have to go. She bribes them with material things to get information. She has them say things to us. At this point I will no longer care for them. She accused me of lying about her entering the house and assaulting me. She manipulated the boys into saying the same thing. I will be taking her to claims court once I get the damage from the hand specialist. Until them we are in an ugly custody battle. Her attorney is a dick who does nothing more than dance around the truth. He doesn't care about the kids. He cares about the dollar. She continues to violate the court order not to make disparaging remarks or drink in front of the kids; or talk about the case. And she does so. I am very distant from the kids. I do what I have to do. I worry about accusations which continue all the time. And I worry about my safety as nobody seems to worry about what she did. I reported her to cps twice due to not following through with antibiotics (kids got sicker); and she admitted it. And her live in boyfriend/tenant or whatever he is is hitting the kids. Also the fact he was arrested in the driveway with a dwi. She is on the tape stating 'he does it all the time'. The best part is he peed in his pants; and didn't even know it. This man drives my husbands kids around. He currently can only drive to work and back. But we have proof he is still driving on days he is not allowed. Oh and if it isn't all enough, she wants my husband back stating 'I wish I was there'; 'you chose her over me'; 'move closer to me so we can have our family'. She actually said her therapist told her to have my husband move to her city to be by kids when we own our home; and she rents her home...and she was the one who left and moved. I'm seriously done with this person. I do not wish to make peace with her. At this point I tell the kids not to talk about her because they are like little cult members with their mommy rants all day. They lie as much as she does. I've struggled and thought of leaving. But my husband is a good dad and father. And I feel this witch will do it again and again to anyone who comes near him. Besides that, I just need to know how other women handle it. I need to hear if anyone else has the same severe situation. Please HELP!
