39 Days and Counting

lilflower1000 posted 5/23/2020 20:42 PM

Iíve got 39 days to go until I close on my new home. Iím trying desperately to get along well with him, stop asking questions etc. For the most part I do well, but I messed up tonight and asked what his plans are w/ the OW. He got upset and told me he didnít know. He did promise not to ever bring her around our kids. I hope heís telling the truth.

Overall heís been being quite kind. He says heís going to continue to take care of us. I hope heís telling the truth. Iím just trying my best to try to get along and make it through the next 39 days.

Maybe I shouldn't post when I'm feeling so shitty, but I wouldn't even acknowledge the fact that he's "being kind." He's an asshat. He caused your situation. However, I am very happy that you are about to close on your new home. Get away from that far and fast!!!

LIlifloweró congrats on the house. I bought mine last summer and it is wonderful to have my own space.

So NC is a beautiful thing, but it is HARD. So just keep trying to not engage.
Is your D and all the financials and stuff final? If not, keep playing nice until everything you deserve. Get the legal stuff done. Then it doesnít matter if he keeps his word (except OW around the kidsó and weíll hope he does the right thing there).

Yes he is an asshat. Iím not sure if you read my story or not, but Iíve been through more than 8 years of hell in this 18 year marriage.

I have not taken care of any legal stuff because heís helping w/ my down payment etc, so I donít want to get into the legal stuff and piss him off . Right now heís paying more than heíd have to through child support, so Iím going to wait until Iím in the home to file.

I canít wait until the kids and I are in our own home. Itíll be such a nice fresh start. The kids are excited too.,I canít wait until this nightmare is over.

38 more days!!
- Did I have sex w/him last night? Yes.. Do I feel bad about it?No. I might be insane, but I donít. Itís actually comforting.
- Overall, I feel better today. Iím going to get up, go to the gym and go fishing. Then maybe Iíll start painting some furniture.

The world is my oyster!
I hope I stay in this state of mind.

As he states that he doesnít know what plans he has where OW is concerned, be cautious about him forcing his way back into your life.

My STBX WH began treating me even worse as the nearer I was to closing on my new home. That was a year ago.

He harassed me about his new GF, which made me laugh as I was supposed to be jealous.

I regret that my children witnessed his worst behaviour.

He was jealous that I was moving on without him and thriving on my own. Thatís when the harassment from WH, GF & Co. verged on the illegal.

He wanted to and just expected to lie and waltz back into my life. I am still single by choice.

As restrictions ease up, I am pushing him towards D! I have been through enough. Good luck 🙏🏼

You may have already mentioned this but I am assuming the home will be titled in your name only and the mortgage if there is one will be in his name only until there is a final legal agreement a lawyer approves? (unless you are planning on paying the mortgage yourself). I still feel like this is risky without legal counsel because 'him paying' the downpayment is actually, 'you and him' paying the down-payment, and any new purchase 'for you' actually belongs equally to both of you.

Congrats on moving forward though, what a relief it must be.
