"I would never tell a child that their mommy can't be their mommy, ever. Reason, they'll believe that it was something about them that made mommy not want to be their mommy, kids do this all the time. They blame…"
"Maybe I'm giving her too much credit, but I expect it's just a matter of time before she realizes what it is she's done. And when she does, she's going to want those kids back. I hope he gets his paperwork squared away quickly."
"That's not a bad way to put it. My concern is that the children would blame themselves for mommy not wanting to live with them. But that may be more of a concern for the five year old, whereas the two year old would know mommy was gone but…"
"One of my neighbors is going through something similar, with similarly young children. He told the younger one that...Mommy decided she didn't want to live with us, anymore.
Obviously I am not privy to the rest of the conversation,…"
"I agree that it's not a good idea to bad mouth their mother at this point. After all, the kids are two and five. But about the truth. The truth is too harsh. Do you mean a version of the truth? Maybe something like, "your mommy can't…"
"As of this morning, I am officially on my own. My children are with me, and we have the full support of friends and family. My wife has spoken to my lawyer and has offered to sign over custodial rights to me. She feels the children are holding her…"
"Sounds like you've been given and accepted the best advice already. I just want to add that you don't need to question your manliness. You've shown yourself to be a good man in every stage of this. Keep the faith,…"
"What everyone else said. We're all behind you sir. Hang in there. And don't feel that wanting to trust the person you're married to makes you unmanly. What you're doing and having to go through is the epitome of the hell that is…"
"I'm going to echo what everyone else has said because I think it is important.
1. Get a lawyer
2. Get a divorce
3. Get the kids
You don't need me to tell you that your life with her is only miserable. You need to do what is best for you…"
"No long conversations. Definitely talk with lawyers first, as many as you can as was suggested. I echo what Will said, she will likely have an awesome sob story that implicates you for whatever she can dream up. My mom made these types of threats…"
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
