I don't even know who you are anymore. Happy anniversary.

DH and I aren't in a good place right now. Yesterday he said something that hurt me deeply. As soon as he said it he apologized profusely and said it just came out wrong. But ever since then I've been on the verge of tears. Today I took a 75-mile drive to the house I lived in as a kid. Lots of good memories and as soon as I pulled in the driveway the waterworks started. An old lady came out and, sobbing, I told her it had been my home. She held my hand and walked around the yard as I pointed out the honeysuckle under my bedroom window and my initials in the cistern lid (crying all the while). I didn't ask, but she said she couldn't let me in because she didn't know me and hoped I understood. I'm crying as I type this, but it was SUCH a good afternoon!

In response to a confession. It sounds like what really screwed him over was that he was ordered to take a paternity test in 2002, but didn't. He claims he never received the court order and the court says otherwise. So, the mom is getting back child support from the date she filed for that original court ordered paternity test. Still, it's extremely fucked up that he's paying for a kid that isn't his and I hope he's fighting it.

My husband finally called the doctor for his depression. He's going to ask for a referral to a psychotherapist, as well. This is it for us. If he isn't willing to put in the work, I'm done. I told him I feel like a hostage because of how manipulative he can be when he's depressed.

In response to a confession. I know the 2-3 years is considered standard, but I see a lot of relationships go through a rough time right after that. I feel like 5 years is more when people really know the other person. I know this will be an unpopular opinion, but I have seen so many relationships that could have avoided divorce if they had waited a full 5 years.

In response to a confession. I'm the op of the mystery child posts. I just googled that case and, yup, it's true. Something about Texas code 161. It sounds like the court had it on file that he'd been ordered to take a paternity test, and he was never actually served the papers, but the court doesn't care. From what I read, there are a few cases that are headed to the supreme court because of this code. The story is out of Houston, which is near where psycho mama lives. I wonder if she saw the story and this fueled her to contact my dh. Our lawyer even said that if she ever files anything, we'll fight her from the beginning, including submitting to a paternity test.

In response to a confession. It is extremely unlikely that you're going to know enough about a person in three months to marry him. Even if you think it's love. If you still want to marry him in 2 or 3 years, go ahead, but don't be surprised when all his baggage falls off the cart and hits you in the head. Signed, Voice of Experience.

My ILs have some seriously fucked up ideas about things and the more I get to know them, the more I find out about them. Like this gem: My MIL doesn't think women should have platonic male friends once they are married and that men shouldn't have platonic women friends. I have lots of platonic male friends and DH doesn't care. Likewise, I don't care about his platonic female friends. They are social friends and I don't usually plan things with them, but we'll throw parties and invite them over. I wish very much that his parents had taught him that men can be platonically friendly with women and that you can be friends with women without having to marry them. Basically, they taught him that you only interact with single women and you only do it until you marry them and then women are off limits. It's just so messed up.

In response to a confession. I'm a paralegal for a family lawyer and I find this hard to believe.. What basis would a judge have to order a person to pay back child support on a child that wasn't his, and that he never even saw or raised as his own? I've never heard or seen such a thing. Not saying it's not possible or calling you a liar, but please, provide a link or something. I would be interested in reading about this. And if a judge orders him to pay, that case can set precedence for future cases too. So that's what I'm not understanding either.
