Re: Wife left my girls and me for a coworker
Don't assume she gets custody.
The longer you are the primary care-giver for the two kids, the better your chances of retaining legal custody upon divorce. Document everything. Keep a journal and quickly jot down things like : prepared breakfast, prepped for school, assisted w/homework, made dinner, coordinated play-date, talked with teacher, took to MD, etc. If or when she takes the girls for the night write that down along with any communication you have with the kids when they are not with you. Write them down daily, like at the end of the day. It will be invaluable when it comes to you getting custody. The court will listen to a daily journal.
In youth it was a way I had, to do my best to please, And change, with every passing lad to suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know, and do the things I do; And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you! --Dorothy Parker
