| | Wife threatens to leave with daughter.
I live in NYC with my domestic partner; we did not get married due to some tax issues I wanted to resolve first. Our relationship is been great for 5 years with some minor problems. We now have a 6-week daughter and after an argument she is threatening to leave.
Here are the facts:
I provide all the support my wife and daughter need (Affection and monetary)
I heavily emphasize the concept of education and want my wife to learn English. She's been in the US for 10 years and would not learn the language.
I am truly very caring towards my family and the well being of all members
Her mother drives me crazy
Her brother is an inept that has a crash on her sister (my wife).
He treats her as if she were his girlfriend. I know, this is very sickening. He is a major part of our arguments.
So now my wife is threatening to leave because of an argument.
Can she do that legally? What can I do to protect my daughter? I'm really scared of her brother near my baby.
I'm sick of this situation going my after wife with incentives to study, take care of our home, cook and help me out while I work full time and finish my master degree. She is not helping me at all.
