How do you pay for only 'most' of the groceries?
How does she buy a $500 phone?
How does she pay for getting to where the OM is?
I leave some cash, very limited, for any groceries she may need to buy for the home while I'm away.
Good question on the phone. I assume he bought it. That is the only way I can think of. Unless she has somehow managed to squirrel away much more money than I give her credit for. I did ask her brother if he had given her an early birthday present. He knew nothing of it.
Again, I am assuming he is paying for it. One conversation a couple of weeks ago when I found out she had gone to Kansas City for the weekend with him kind of implies that he has given her a check card or something. She said she didn't spend a dime. I asked how in the world you drive to Kansas City and not spend a dime. She said, "You figure it out."
Anyway, none of this really matters. I left a very small amount of cash with a written plan. Also, I left a note for her to call the mediator if she has an issue with it. I will not discuss it with her. I will only discuss it with the mediator.
Time and again, Hurting's wife has demonstrated a (near-?) sociopathic ability to do and say whatever she must to foist all responsibility for her care on someone else.
From your last couple of posts, Hurting, it sounds like Mr Wonderful might be picking some of that up financially. So, which of them is planning to move closer to the other after the D?
Or, equally possible...they both may be under the impression that she's still successfully stalling forward motion on the D. As soon as she let's him know that her HiT gravy train is ending, he might realize that this crazy, cheating chick expects him to provide for her full time, leading to the inevitable dropping of her like a hot potato.

I suspect this will happen. It's one thing to fork over cash for party time, travel, hotel, etc. It's another to fork over cash for day-to-day expenses. Reality will be hard for her.
And how are the kids doing, Hurting? Still being homeschooled by the leech? Or are they in public school now? How are they handling the whole situation? From your posts, they seem to be pretty bright, so I imagine they can see right through her shenanigans.
They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and overt and expecting different results. I'm gonna be a little insane here.
Hurting, I feel for ya. Your leech has done you over, but good. But I'm not gonna play fair, here. I'm gonna play the kids card.
If your kids were hurt, you wouldn't let something like a "work conflict" get in the way of taking care of them, would you? Well, the longer this toxic cycle goes on, the more damage that's done to them. And you're one of the two people inflicting that damage.
So, finish reading this post, cuss me out for being an ass, then prove that your words about your kids' welfare being your top priority in all this are more than just words: pick up the phone, reschedule with the lawyer ASAP, and don't let ANYTHING keep you from going. Posted via Mobile Device
