    I can use him for money until I can stand on my own feet. Should I fake it till I make it [on my own] or better to server ties for my sanity now and come what may?

    And how long to “make it on your own”? Once you graduate? Once you get more than a PT job? How are you going to move on and find a real relationship if youre still tied to this guy’s wallet? 

    Cheating is bad, but what youre considering is pretty disgusting.

    Cheating is wrong. So is using someone for their money and it’s pretty gross that you’re considering it. Idk…maybe you two deserve each other though.

    Isn’t this the guy that was cheating on you years ago, and you were trying to get off the mortgage???

    @jellybellynelly:  Cheating is worse and then lying about it? Come on!

    @queenie8119:  OP can you really stay in a relationship where you know whenever he goes out he is clearly cheating on you? Touching another woman, kissing her, having sex with her….. I do not think any amount of money is worth this disrespect and heartache. Keep your morals and leave.

    Oh god! Welcome to the new episode of “cheating sugar daddies.” This cannot be real!

    Therapy would be good for you both. It seems like you both have some things to figure out between you two and a therapist could really help you figure out your deal breakers and whats important to you. Cheating isn’t a deal breaker for everyone (I’m not saying anything other then that about it) and I have no right to tell you to stay or go (as only you can make that decision for you and the child) 



    Good luck

    @queenie8119:  If you’ve been with him 8+ years and you have a six year old and an ex husband, I’m assuming you cheated too. Not that it makes any of it right. I’m just confused.

    Some questions first before taking the nuclear option: are you in your heart of hearts just *done* with this guy after this bout of cheating– ie you’ll never respect him again?

    Or do you think you could ever see the two of you reconciling with counseling?

    Do you have savings or are they being eaten up by the divorce? 

    Would you and your son have a stable, safe place to live immediately and for the foreseeable future if you were to walk out today? Or are we talking food banks and women’s shelters if you leave now?

    Is he someone you would want to keep in your son’s life as a father figure even if you weren’t in a relationship with him?

    @queenie8119:  queenie, forget all men  for a long time because you are bad at picking them and it isnt fair to your child to involve them in your life. Youve posted about suspected cheating before and you’ve ignored glaring flags like he’s estranged from his adult children. Generally kids do not block parents out of their life for no reason. He also flirted/hit on you whilst knowing you were married. Decent people with a moral  compass do not do that. Why on earth would you date this guy in the first place and allow yourself to be dependent on him??  You keep talking about a deadbeat dad but your choices regarding your son haven’t been much better. You owe him a safe and stable enviroment where you are selective of who you allow into his life. A guy 25 years older, estranged from his children, forms a very quick bond with your child without worrying about their emotional wellbeing, flirts openly with a women with a partner etc would set off an alarm in most people. Leave him even if it means struggling financially for a while and even postponing your study until you can get back to it. Dont stay with this man. Is he what you want your son emulating in the future?

    Let me get this straight… you believe that the revenge for cheating should be using this man for his money while stringing your child along in the process?

    Are you absolutely kidding me? Be a better mother, and a better person than that. 

    Honestly, you two sound like you deserve eachother. This is disgusting and I hope you’re both very happy together.

    Bee, I mean this with love. I don’t think you should rely on any man that isn’t your husband to finance your life. I mean, if you were in a sugar daddy relationship, that is different, but it sounds like you were in a relationship with this guy. It couldn’t be for long, right? Since you are just getting divorced? I am confused by the “I am involved with a man side 8+ years…” comment. Is that man your ex-husband? It sounds like you are getting your career together and working on supporting yourself, but you have a kid to think about and you are in your 30s with no income flow? Are you going to get some in the divorce? Bee, don’t be with someone for just the money. Go live with some family members for a bit, establish yourself, and get a part-time job. This guy sucks.


    ETA: I saw some of your previous posts about the other toxic relationship you were in. Bee, it seems like you’ve gotten into a dating habit of dating some crappy men. I suggest some therapy and focusing on yourself for bit. I am happy to hear you are in school. Leave this loser, don’t take revenge, and focus on yourself. Sending love.

    @queenie8119:  I don’t think it’s right for you to stay and use this guy for his money, but I know that only you can make that decision. If you do stay, please do not have sex with him. This guy could be a walking STD.
