My son was with WS for the weekend alone overnight for the first time ever with anyone other then me. My son(9)filled me in on his and dad's weekend...they went to the dog park yesterday where "we met a lady dad knew and her 6 year old son". I said, did it look like dad planned on meeting her there or just bumped into someone he knew. My son says "mom the lady didn't even come with a dog". I am in total shock over this. He also informed me that "dad told me that he is not making us move from the house but that you want to move, and he played a voicemail for me of you saying I want to move". I told my WS that yes after all that has happened I want to move, and he plays that for our 9 year old son so I look like I'm forcing this! Then my son says "well dad did say that we should move because you are ruining his life"!!!!!!!! I am at a loss for words, I am empty inside

What an absolute JERK. And to put your son in such a confusing predicament.

How can anyone live without a sense of shame for shameful behavior.

I am sorry you have to endure this.

Tomorrow your son needs to repeat this to a counselor, lawyer, pastor, school psych, someone. Someone other than you needs to document this.

Considering what you've already told us about this man,this doesn't surprise me. He is a terrible father.

Introducing his son to his whore,less than a month after dday is emotional abuse.

Please get your DS into counseling.

Leave the message tonight on the counselor's answering service. Then type it all out as you remember it. Don't have your son repeat it to you. Forward what you think you heard to the counselor if the counselor accepts email. Otherwise, print it out and take it in with you to hand to the counselor. Don't have any more discussion about this with your son between now & tomorrow when hopefully the counselor can squeeze him in for an emergency debrief.

I am in a serious state of shock. Less then 3 weeks ago, I had a life partner, my son had an intact family, and now here we are 2.5 weeks later!!! I could seriously just vomit. I havent eaten a full meal, Ive lost over 10 lbs, can't sleep more than 3 hours a night and each day makes the situation worse. When do I try to contact OW or do I not? He has lied to her too. God this hurts like nothing I have ever experienced.

Wow. Grounds for murder!, how dare he manipulate your child!

You need to listen to those who have gone before you.

Get to the attorney. Set the rules. This man is an abusive, juvenile idiot. Refuse to deal with him. He is attempting to push you into doing something you'll regret. Get a restraining order if you can. Just don't let him near you without your attorney.

Pull up your Bitch Boots, tonight, and cut him off at the knees. Be sure to take his income, house, and whatever else he might have. You have earned it all! Especially the good schools and home.

Boots! Up! Be done with "fair". Putting it off one day, just hurts you and your son more. Take control, NOW!

The OW is not your concern. Don't even think about her right now.

Do you have a lawyer? If not, that's your other top priority tomorrow.

Also, you need to secure your finances. If you haven't done this yet, tomorrow (a busy day tomorrow!) withdraw half of all monies in all accounts and put into account(s) in your name only. You need to protect yourself. If your attorney says pull out more than half, pull out more. Because I was a SAHM my attorney told me to take the lion's share of the money. I did, and it's a good thing I did because Asshole immediately withdrew all financial support from me & the children. It took a threat of court/jail to get him to start making money available to us, and even then that took six or seven months to force his hand.

I hope you have a couple friends or relatives in your neighborhood who you can count on. I have a feeling you are in for a very rough ride.

Oh My Lord. Simply incredible. What a selfish ass. I am sooo very angry right now for you and your DS.

As already stated time to put on the bitch boots, get finances in order and protect yourself and your child.

Do not contact OW. She is not worth your time.

Strength to you and your DS.

Glad your Son already has a counselor. I hope that you are documenting this entire trainwreck-to-be. I was
terrible at keeping linear written notes. I am not a "day planner" type of person, so I used a voice recorder, to dictate what was going on with my wacko.)

Praying for better days for you and Son.

Concentrate on your son and how you're going to deal with this. It will only get worse if you spin your wheels.

This is parental alienation. Follow the advice of others and involve a therapist and lawyer.

Please don't put your son into the position of ratting out his dad. I'm being as gentle as I can. When you asked him if it appeared that they just ran into each other at the park, or if it seemed like a pre-arranged meeting, you put your son on the spot. I know it's hard to NOT ask these questions. But, I promise you, there are other ways to find out the answers to those questions. If your child feels like he's going to get grilled, he'll not only be overly sensitive to the things that are happening around him, he might just lie to protect whoever needs their feelings protected at the time. Your best response is, "Oh. Did you have a good time?" I'm sorry that your WS did this to you and to your son, but don't play into it. Your son will find out the truth of who his father is without any help from you. If he senses safe ground, he'll probably talk about it anyway.

Totally selfish, child-minded asshole. Seems like this man doesn't know the meaning of the word "father". He is torpedoing his children's self-esteem and is oblivious or doesn't care.

I know this is all new to you and it's very rough right now but try to start looking at this from a perspective that in the end, you will be much better off without this kind of dysfunctional jerk-off around you. If he's like this at his age - he's just never going to get any better.

What?! I thought she didn't have a child. Uhg.... I agree your son will know what type of "father" he is soon enough. I would only contact the OW when he is not around. Andonly if you have absolute proof that you had a relationship with this man till 3weeks ago. Like joint bills, pictures, cards or something to show her that it was a good caring relationship.

What a loser!
but I agree with EasyDoes it, as hard as is it try not to ask your son questions, or use him as a go between (he should be free to love you and his dad- no matter what a terrible, horrible, loser, husband he was). Instead it's best to plaster on a smile and say "Glad you had fun honey!"

Ya I did not know she had a child. When doing my research I assumed because she was single/never married, and the fact the he is spending almost every night with her, that she had no children. I would NEVER expose my child to a man I just began dating even if it appeared to be becoming serious in such a short time. I am suppose to protect my children from my dating life not invite them in to help father them!!!!

I'm so sorry that happened to your son! That is horrible!

(((HelpMe)))

I am also three weeks out. Its so hard when they just leave. Right now XWBF has supervised visitation and no overnights because of concerns that he will bring the kids around Mrs. Robinson. He's already told DD's mom how much more stable he and Mrs. Robinson would be for her. Wtf?? Stable?! Last Saturday he went to pick up DD as usual and said he would be taking her overnight to Mrs. Robinson's place. DD's mom said no way, he could only have her at his/his parents place where he still has a room. He got mad, said she was trying to keep him from seeing DD and left w out her. Now, no overnights, supervised visits.

Children don't need to be dragged into the WS's delusions.

So glad you have your DS in counseling.

You need to concentrate on your future and your son's future - not your ex-lover. That is all he is.

This hand writing has been on the wall for at least 3 years when you two started living apart.

Time to take control of your life. He's a jerk and that's putting it nicely.


D-Day was 10/9/05
He promised NC. He lied. After 4 chances, I kicked him out 1/05/06.
Since then I have survived cancer surgery and a heart attack.
Now he's sorry, but it's too late.

The WS do not care about the kids well being when they are with the loser OW. The counselor of my twins asked my WS (after I told the counselor what he was doing) to give the children time to accept the seperation of mom and dad before you bring someone else into their lifes well that lasted about 1 week and they were exposed to her all the time with her staying over at his place too.
Daddy's "friend" poor kids have to endure this bullshit that parents put them up to for their own "happiness"
The counselors told me (my own and the kids) not to ever say anything bad or negative about their father in front of or to them. As far as questioning them it hurts the person finding out the info more. Sometimes its better not to know what is going on.
It is early enough that maybe you can talk to the atty and tell them you want no overnights cause of OW also from my experience the more overnights you give him now that is what they will base the child sharing on when they decide who gets your boy and how many days. They do not want to change the way the child is shared before the divorce so use your common sense now (I learned the hard way) when the child is given to the parent overnight that is considered a day with that parent but if they spend every day and no overnights then they are primarily your full custody. Just sayin for custody and that wonderful child support $

I don't agree with the *never* say anything negitive about the other parent.

Certainly, you don't want to go off with a litany of how horrible to other parent is.

But kid's know when your upset,when they don't know why, they will fill in the blanks with horrible imaginings. Or worse have your XWS fill them in.

I tell my daughter the truth, in age appropriate terms.

"I'm upset that dad lied to me about yesterday".

I make it clear, that our difficulties are not for her to stress about. But I will not lie to her, or make her believe untruths about our lives...

My kids have never met OW, dont think son ever will, not on purpose anyway. He has seen his dad once in the last 16 months, no contact. Their relationship is over, dont see hope of R for son and WH. And its sad because son now has a son of his own who WH will probably never ever see

As for daughter, she wants nothing to do with OW, sent her a nasty message on FB when she saw a pic of WH and OW's son on OW's profile. It was a very nasty message

DD called for her dad one time and OW asked when she was going to come out for the weekend and DD said NEVER, another time OW called her sweetie and my DD got mad and said "dont ever call me that, and dont call here for my dad, call his cell" Unfortunately she didnt listen, she called every single time he came here for the night, but last few time, i turned the ringer off, or we didnt answer

I am very grateful my kids are older, and they can form their own opinions on their dad, they feel the way they do because they know what he is doing, i am not influencing them one bit, although OW told me I am turning them against him

Guess thats because she is believing his lies that we were broke up, instead of the truth. DD is not deaf or blind, she knew what was going on when he was here

Good luck

Now get packin' and improve this poor man's quality of life - got it?

Thank you.

If you never knew she had a son, is it possible it was not the OW, but someone he might know casually from work and they did meet by accident?

If I didn't know you weren't me I'd think you were me! My stbx also brought his new woman around our 9 yr old. She went hiking with them and out to eat. Then she spent the night at my house. This all happened on the very first weekend after I filed for divorce after finding the evidence of his affair.

I know how you feel but try not to make a big deal of it in front of your son. I simply asked my son if the woman was nice & if they had a good time. I pretended to be happy and then I went and cried like a baby behind closed doors and angrily ranted to anyone who would listen.

I am meeting with an attorney this week to get all info regarding divorce. In my state I believe I can file for a divorce for common law marriage. My state got rid of it in 2005 but the law clearly states any common law relationships prior to are grandfathered in. I will take him for everything I can including lessing his visits. This should put a damper on his new life as he is now basically living with the OW after 2.5 weeks!!!!! What kind of woman is she?????

Yes Safeguard I agree with you about what to tell the kids. Although I have never lied to them they were very little when it happened and having extreme problems (too much to list here)
Even my attorney said to keep it light with the kids and don't make daddy look like father of the year but watch your emotions and outbursts about dad in front of them. And of course we tend to take it out on the WS in front of our kids (not with the spouse present)
But ya know what no one ever said I should respect the hoe and she knew everything about our marriage our kids and our new built family home (his hoe-worker) so any opportunity I get to bash her in front of my kids I do cause she is an evil one who has no remorse and thinks she did my WS a gift from god by saving him from me and his terrible marriage.
Well the part that I cannot handle is how she pretends to be "mommy" to my kids and has the little bday parties and etc etc so I have told her guess what I am part of this family it is not 4 people it is 5 I am right there with ya! Get use to it bitch and I also informed my WS the other day (our twins are 13 now)that when they get married she is NOT coming to their weddings with him and he said we will see and I said well the choice to our kids will be mom at the wedding or daddy's whore you choose and I can guarantee ya what they will say. He hung up on me He thinks I will be over it by then NOPE was married 19 wonderful years till she came along she will regret ever messing with this housewife...Oh that's right she already does just ask her. Her karma is coming I think he is already regreting his life choices I can hear the change in his voice & I haven't seen him but only 3 times in the last 3yrs can't toooo hard but one day when I am strong enough I know that deep apology will come I just know it. Then I will be the one saying come on in ya had dinner yet and when his phone is ringing I can say Oh just push ignore she can talk to ya later! I will play her game one back at her but of course I would never ever do to her what she did to me & our kids cause I could never go that low!
I have more morals than that.

I understand your hurt but would like to caution you against taking this particular moment to make a statement about your WS. Your daughter's wedding should be HER day to celebrate, not your day to make a point. Please don't put her in the position to make a choice between her dad and you. If he's with the OP now, and they're a couple, then you're kind of stuck dealing with it. It doesn't mean you have to talk to her, but it would be nice if your daughter didn't have to deal with the infidelity of your marriage on her wedding day.

I guess that's why they call ya Easy Does it huh but I think my daughter understands she has seen me cry soooo much the last 3 years and tell her in tears how much I love her Dad and miss him soooo terribly. I have not seen her dad more than 3 times in 3 years after being together 24/7 for 22 years.
She will understand cause she will not want to take the attention away from her wedding and she knows the 2 of us cannot be in the same room together myself and the OW not my WS ( when OW came to OUR HOUSE and looked me in the face and told me Well if you would have treated him better when he was here with you maybe he wouldn't be with me now...need I say what happened next) Her dad will come to his daughters wedding but I cannot handle sitting on the front row with them and then seeing them dance together at our daughters wedding.
That is something they should have thought about when they decided to go against our marriage and our family.
Sad consequences and I am sure I wuld not be the only one on this site to agree with that.
Won't be any friendship lost and now OW she laughs and tells me to get over it and move on and she knew me my kids and our whole story that's what makes it even worse she (from co-workers stories) has been pursuing my WS for years even my brother in law told me how she acted around him.
So I know her dad will be there but I cannot let her take over all of our childrens cherished memories cause she cannot maintain any morals (not her 1st company affair she destroyed her own marriage and family with another co-worker ohhh and guess what she is Head of HR for entire state)
She is a special girl how she ended up with my WS we don't know but every story is different and I was raised differently than that.
So my kids will probably beg their father to not bring her cause they know how delicate the story is
They had to live it they cried and had meltdowns too!
Thanks for the advice.

Your super ex-idiot will try to turn your son against you. It won't work. Children are very perceptive about what your motivations are. Your son is obviously smart enough to see that your WH was deceiving him with meeting the OW. He also knows his dad is trying to manipulate him. My XW got to my daughters early and convinced them for a day that while she was having an affair, she suggested that I had also had many affairs. The truth is that Cindy Crawford couldn't have gotten me to cheat on my XW, not because she was so special, but because that's who I am. As deceitful as my XW was, my children could tell very quickly who the skank was. Your son has already caught on. Protect him, your jackass of a WH won't be a good influence on him. Your son will grow up very protective of his mother. Love and prayers.

@hailstormer

I guess that's why they call ya Easy Does it huh

LOL, the name is one I picked because it's a phrase I use often when training people to train their dogs. I'm rather scrappy, for the most part, but I've watched my kids be torn apart with the actions of my ex forcing them to choose between him and me.

If your daughter can convince her dad to NOT bring the OW, that would obviously be the best thing for everyone. It would be even better if he chose that option on his own. Probably he won't do that though because he's already proven himself to be a stinking dick.

That being said, it's up to you how you handle the situation. I just know that my youngest daughter opted to not have a wedding at all with ANYONE present because she didn't want to exclude her dad or my oldest son (from a prior marriage). My ex (her dad) would not have gone to a wedding where my son was present, and I think it was a selfish position for my ex to take. He made the potential wedding day about himself and it should have been about her.

Infidelity sucks.

I'm really sorry.

I'm not sure if our DD has met OW yet. I suspect she has met some of "the family".

It's so hard to witness our kids on this journey with us. Their capacity to understand is so different than ours, even with things we are able to explain.

So many changes, so much at once, going on right under their roofs.

I'm sorry for your trouble. This is a little bit of what I deal with too, as we print our boarding passes on the road towards divorce.

It's almost like your WH is using your DS as a pawn or a tool to get to you and that makes me sad.

No one wins in affairs and no one is immune to being decieved when someone decides to embark on that queest. It's horrible and that was very sneaky.

That's really good to let the counselor know and I hope they will be some help.

Sometimes when I've mentioned to STBXH that I have "professional help" or "professional opinions" on various subjects that arise, he backs off. It's not something I enjoy doing, but if it gets him to back off then I will do what I can within reason.
