DS is almost 18. After a long battle, I was given custody when he was 4. All these years his dad and stepmom have always had this thing about things they buy him (or that he buys himself with money they/that side of the family give him) staying at their house. It's so ridiculous and petty - there were even fights about things as small as pencils when he was little. I've had to buy duplicates of expensive things because "theirs" can't come here. So for Christmas, they gave him a Bluetooth headset for when he's driving. And sure enough, stepmom tells him the next time he's there, he has to bring it back. So...what? He can only use it when he's driving around on the weekends he's there? Because he'll go for an overnight during the week, drive to school the next morning and be home for a week. Why should he have to have TWO headsets, one for there and one for here? Ds is just as angry as I am.

SO many arrows referring to previous confessions. Why don't you just answer in the comments?? This is an anonymous website FFS, what are you afraid of?

I feel childish my dad mentioned he’s been considering moving states since where he lives is too expensive and he can’t get around much on his own. my brother is looking at moving at the end of the year and if he goes my mom plans on going too. It would leave my dad all alone. I told him I thought it would be great if he came and lived with ds and I. I could use the help with him watching ds when he has to skip school for sick days, he perked up at the idea of helping me. He just told me he offered my brother to use his VA loan to buy a place where my brother wants to live if my brother would let my dad move with him. My dad is hard to live with, so it’s not like I’d fight to have him come live with me. but ds and I are the only ones in the family who enjoy spending time with him. And if he follows my brother he’ll be living with my mom too. Idk why he wants to live with them when I jumped at the opportunity to have him live with us.

In response to a confession. That's so awful. This whole thread made me so mad. I hope that woman is able nail his ass. This probably sounds dumb, but I had no idea people in the military could restrict money like that from their spouse.

In response to a confession. No, he's giving her less than half of what he's paid for having a wife and child, which is called BAH. He's keeping ALL of his regular military pay.

Even though it's "my" NYE with ds, his dad asked if he could go with them tonight for a family dinner. Since ds and I have big plans for tomorrow night, I said yes. Dh is away for work and not far from his kids, so he'll be with them tonight. I got off work at 3, came home and saw ds off. I didn't get invited anywhere tonight, not even by my cousins (my family is in another state). So far I've done two loads of laundry, cleared out the cabinet under the kitchen sink, cleaned the kitchen floor and stovetop, cleaned both bathrooms and vacuumed the downstairs. I started washing the walls upstairs but I think I should get to the oven first. And I really want to steam clean the carpets. I haven't been this productive all year. Happy New Year. If I'm still awake, the dog and I will watch the ball drop together.

In response to a confession. I'm confused here... So some months he is giving her more than half of his money and you are upset why? Just curious, not being snarky.

In response to a confession. Thank you! I just went there and according to the calculator, he's getting $1147 BAH each month. He's putting between $400 and $600 a month into her account, depending on how much he 'can spare.' What a dick!!

In response to a confession. Yeah, the housing allowance alone should be enough to make renting an apartment near the base affordable. He’s gotta be pocketing close to $1000 a month. There’s also a military pay calculator she can check out. Idk how accurate it is, but it factors in housing, years of service, and dependents. Google “military pay calculator” and the one I looked at is from a website called Military Benefits. That’ll give her a rough idea too of what he might be making. I hate the idea of spouses getting screwed over by shitty husbands because I know the go to excuse is “that’s just howthe military works” they may not be rolling in money, but the military does make sure you aren’t homeless and can afford things as long as you have a decent grasp on your finances.
