See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
It's so heartbreaking, I took the time to get to know this man before I married him, and we waited for awhile to have our daughter.
Things were good, he was excited to try for a baby. He wanted a family and so did I. Our child was born when he was on R&R from Afghanistan, They let him stay home a month with me and the baby. Then he had to go back. She was 4 months when he came home.
Things seemed fine, we were enjoying the baby and each other. It was a different life then we had before, the baby came first and extra funds went to the baby not for fun stuff for use anymore.
Fast forward just before she turned one he asked for a divorce out of the blue, but never filed and said he changed his mind.
So I went on living life. Another deployment and move to a new town. Our daughter turns 2, he asks for a divorce while he was deployed. I cry, I'm alone in a city with no family and friends with a 2 year old. He said he will tey and make it work. Fast forward, she's just about to turn 5. He cheats on me with a lady from work and leaves me and or daughter. He tries to leave us with nothing and turns cold to me and our daughter.
He said it was to stressful, and he wanted to be free. yeah free to cheat I guess. I found a e-mail with the 20 years his senior talking about his plan to leave me and my daughter. He's gone living in his aunts spare room, not with her anymore if he was to begin with ,but now with a woman with 4 kids. what a slap in the face. He couldn't afford just taking care of one and it was stressful yet he will take on 4 that are not his.
I feel like a fool trying to keep my family together for my daughter. I can't even date because I'm so broken, alot of nice men ask me out but I'm so fearful now.
