Ask the Divorced Woman!
by Maria Costa
Title: Why Did This Happen?
I love my ex-husband very much. I am 23, and he is 33. I was his third
third divorce. We were married 2 yrs and have a beautiful son. I found
out about the divorce when my son was admitted to the hospital. I went
home to get some clothes for my child and found the locks were changed.
I was served several minutes later w/divorce papers. I had no idea.
Without any clothes but the clothes on our backs, we went to live w/my
parents. My son was 14 months old at the time, and is a very ill
child. He has asthma, and a heart condition. I don't make much money,
and I get no child support
from him. I was awarded support, but he has yet to pay me a penny. I
raise my son w/help from my family.
I guess I don't understand why I could still love someone that was so
mean and selfish. I just don't understand how he could abandon us? He
never sees his son, and when he does he yells, and screams at me. What
can I do?
Your questions are the same as mine = why in the world would you love
someone like this? If you go back to this man - your life as well as
your son's will be pure hell.
I say be glad you are away from him and file papers in court about the no
child support. Your ex needs to spend a couple of days in jail to wake
up to reality and his responsibilities.
Pick up my book "When the Vows Break: Living Through Separation &
Divorce" it will help you with the above questions plus how to join
support groups which you need to do! If you can't find it in your local
bookstore call my toll free number 888-267-3929 PIN #7176.
