As a woman...no matter how much money we make, we want a guy who will have the ability to assert himself by proving that he can take care of himself and us as well if everything goes South in our finances.
I understand that she swept you off your feet, but that's mostly power trip. (which is wrong, any way you look at it)
Now...her maintaining your children on her payroll is still some sort of powertrip. He's screwed you by ruining your life but you have no other choice but to take it, because she still throws money your kids way. It's a choice now whether you suck it up or do what is legally right, if so...
I hope you have a very good lawyer, who can at least get you a chunk of her wealth, enough for you to live comfortably and support your children as well.
it's cold...but it's all business now.
Thanks for your input! Legally speaking, that's what the pre-nup was all about. And it should protect her, other than the willingly co-mingled assets. But in my heart of hearts, I really don't want one red cent of hers~ basically all that I truly desire is to get what possessions that rightfully belong to me out of her house.
One of the biggest problems that I'm encountering right now is that I love the STBXW's extended family dearly: mother, sister, and brother; cousins and friends. My sister-in law texted me on Christmas Day and I replied back by text. No other contact from any of them to speak of. But I'd absolutely love to see all of them again as I think they're laying low primarily out of embarrassment. I've often wondered if I should try to make contact with them at some point in time, albeit by phone call, email, or snail mail.
Going through Valentines Day yesterday was just as rough as Christmas, but I'm trying to get through them one day at a time.
