    This is so awful. I feel for you and your children. Get all the support you can from a good lawyer and counsellor etc. Make sure she has no access to any of your funds. There is something serious going on behind the scenes in her life and she is doing her best to keep it from you. Look after yourself and your kids. I wish you the best.

    I’m so sorry 🙁 you have a tough time ahead and you definitely don’t deserve it. I’m glad you are free of her though, thinking of you and your kids.

    Please get legal help with the kids and your divorce I doubt she’s going to make it easy 🙁

    If it’s any comfort, the most current research is showing that 82% of kids whose parents were unhappy, but stayed together, for the children, wish their parents had divorced.

    The more I think about your story, the more it sounds like Dh and his exw. She ran up astronomical credit card bills, hid them, and assured him they were being handled.

    Her thing was to start businesses and run them into the ground. She would spend lavishly on the businesses, way too much on furniture, equipment, etc for a business not even launched yet. 

    Eventually, she was diagnosed as bipolar. After getting the entire community to send her money because she was dying of cancer.  She wasn’t.

    Dh is a victim, but also a participant.  He knew the ex was not a responsible person, yet he let her have unfettered access to the credit cards.  He accepted her lies at face value, ie that the bills were being paid, with absolutely no historical basis to trust her.  His passivity cost him dearly.

    Ultimately, he ended the marriage because he discovered she was cheating.  But, he stayed much too long.

    Sorry bee.  Sooo sorry.  But you need to prepare yourself because honestly, based on what you have said, I believe things are about to get nasty.  Why do I think this?  Because of all the lies, misdirection, lack of remorse and lack of the ability to even give you a smidgen of truth when you would’ve given her a chance.  Definitely anti-social behavior going on here.  Addiction, narcissism, bi-polar…..whatever she’s about…its always going to be about her needing more.

    You should be realizing that you never knew this person and that means you have no idea what she is capable of.  She knows a good deal more about you than you do her and she’ll use that to her advantage.  Lawyer up and prepare for the worst.    

    Your passiviity in this whole episode ends now.

    After my last post, I realized that I needed to clarify.  Dh’s ex is an untreated Bipolar 1.  She has long refused meds or therapy.

    Very unfortunate, because this mood disorder generally responds well to treatment.
