Is the BF's last name "spray" ??

Sorry sorry - all I could think of was Uncle Buck when you said that....


For real though -- my ex cheated on me too -- for two years. He asked me to marry him,realized it wasn't what he wanted and just figured I'd "go away" like magic (yes, right...b/c I cna read minds) -- so he went through with the wedding, just to get $$ out of people to help pay bills b/c he wasted all the money for our bills paying for this woman and her two bastard kids.....
so I get how you feel on that -- but we never had kids thank God...

All I can say is that really sucks -- even if she's the biggest douche on the planet the courts tend to side with the mothers -- which is totally wrong.
My best friend and her husband are dealing with something similar (he's trying to get custody fo his daughter with his skank-bag ex wife) and even though he has a job (wifey does not), has a house and can provide the little girl with a good life (not to mention teaching her, which the mother does not do - or provide her with clothes and shoes that actually FIT) the courts still think kids have to live with their moms.....
it's a suckish world....

Things'll get better though....they always do - it might just take some time. I've been slowly getting better over the past two and a half years -- nothing spectacular to speak of but....it sure as hell beats the life I had with a lying cheating no good rotten prick .....You are much better off without that baggage (the wife!) so....

Man, I'm really sorry to hear about these things...I can only say that we are here to support you in any way that we can!

There's plenty to be thankful for! You are still breathing and able to walk around and do anything you want to. Plus, you have a such a wonderful gift in your daughter to look after. For sure, you will be there to see her grow and become a great person!!

Your reaction to adversity like this is what defines your character. Stay strong bro.

It sounds like you're a pretty self center guy, and with all honestly im sure you'll power thru this and make the best of it.


Good luck, and Go party now that you're single (and with a Camaro)

If you can prove negligence or that she's unfit to take care of your daughter, you can go for majority or full custody. Also, when children come of a certain age they can choose who they wish to stay at. My brother and I were given the choice to stay with either parent when we wanted I think after age 10 or 12.

Sucks for you man. I hope you pull through. Just remember there's always a silver lining somewhere. As long as you still see her from time to time, you won't miss very much. When she gets a little bit older she'll realize that you had no choice in the matter of missing a couple holidays and won't hate you for it.

Exactly. I don't know what to tell you that would help turn things around. Maybe I can offer some motivation though: Turn your life around and be happy for yourself, just to show ex that you're much better off without her. If she's the type she sounds like it'll piss her off

Sorry for your troubles. Be careful what you write on public forums. I read somewhere that an estranged wife had login info of the husband's web forums and used the info he was providing in custody and alimony battles. Better luck!

The first part is you have to be happy with yourself or you will never be happy with anyone else.

Do the right thing by your daughter. Kids have a funny way of knowing whats right or wrong.

Lastly I would tell you that it will get better may be slow but it will come.

Thanks for the advice. Lucky for me, the ex doesn't touch a computer. She has her phone and just goes to facebook 24/7. She has no clue about this website. lol

Everything has a way of working out. It may take a while but as long as you keep your head up and stay focused and positive then you should be fine.

I have a 12 year old son who lived in Ohio with his mom until last week. He decided that he wanted to move out to California to live with me. I was shocked but extremely happy at the same time. For the last 4 years I was only able to see hm during his summer break and that was tough, but I had to move here for a better job in order to provide a better life for him.

Look at it this way. You're single, 29 (same age as me), you have a Camaro, and a daughter who loves you. In time, if you want, you'll find love again. My suggestion as a child of divorce is to stay out of your ex's personal life as much as possible. Try your best to keep things civil. Your daughter is the #1 priority. I wouldn't feel self-conscious about your eye either. My cousin was born blind in her right eye and I didn't even know till she told me a few years ago. You have more great times ahead of you everything will turn around eventually.

Same thing happened to me at your age, won't bore anyone with old details but it's now 25 yrs later with my 2nd wife and two awesome grandson's. At times I think back and my divorce at 30 was the best thing that happened in my life. Hang in there bud.

I made a few mistakes and lost my best friend she was the only person I talked to and cared about my family. I thought bout her whenever I was with my ex. They didn't know eachother luckily because I treated her like she was my sister. I messed up and she became popular and that ended everything. Things always get better for someone who deserves it. You can do great things and you deserve your daughter. I really hope you get full custody of your daughter. stay strong. I know you won't care cause I am young but I am really sorry. You got a career, camaro and most importantly a daughter

Keep your head up. Tough times build character. You'll get through it and be braver, smarter, and wiser because of this.
