Re: Any hope for alimony? [Re: hopeforme]
      #740710 - 04/12/11 07:56 AM

Thank you to the people who have actually tried to give me some helpful information. I am not trying to blame anyone for my bad decisions,I accept full responsibility. As far as moving on with someone else that is the farthest thing from my mind. Been with this man since I was 14, I think now might be a good time to figure out who I am without him controlling me. Gold digging so far from it, I just hope I won't have to work 2 jobs , 7 days a week to support us, while we live in some apartment because we will for sure not be able to stay in our house. Yes, I want my kids to have a college education. I've stayed this long because I made the bad choice not my kid and I wanted to be able to give them the best life I could with every oportunity as long as I could. At this point I figure I can support one child on my own if I have to 3 wasn't an option. I am so proud that I have raised my son to know right from wrong and how to control his anger so he doesn't grow up to be a bitter man like so many on this board.

Hope,
You are missing the point, if you have done the right thing as a parent and wife, I have no beef with you...
BUT YOU STILL DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE OFF A MAN'S MONEY AFTER YOU LEAVE THE MAN, WHAT KINDA CHARITY IS THAT ?
What is he paying you for ?? Can you be specific ?

Our complaint is we WERE decent responsible husbands, and we got the shaft. Whose fault is it that you chose a deadbeat ? Why should I be punished for your choice ? You have lived pretty well on $105k a year, but now you want to KEEP THE MONEY AND GET RID OF THE MAN WHO EARNS IT ? How is that fair ? What is your explanation for how that is fair ? And keep in mind, you have NO IDEA what it takes to earn that kind of money, THAT IS WHY YOU WANT " YOUR SHARE ", RIGHT ?

Hope,
How would you feel if the situation were reversed ? And he wanted the money ? Still think that is fair ?

"Why should I be punished for your choice ?"

Ummmm, I'm pretty sure this woman is not punishing you!!! This is a clear example of your psychosis.

"Our complaint is we WERE decent responsible husbands, and we got the shaft."

Strange. I am pretty sure your wife's list was much longer and with different conclusions.
