My X wife got fed up with her busy profession, being a mom and a wife and decided to eliminate the wife part. 4 years ago my son was 3 and she took him to her parents house and filed for divorce the next day. The custody battle has been brutle I think she uses our son as a pawn. I have always had about 50% custody and my son has turned out to me a fantastic little boy. I know that the silver lining in my divorce is that I wouldn't have spent the time and energy with my son if I was married. I would have let my X call the shots. I have spent soo much time with my son that my previoud successful consulting business has failed. The combination of lost income, property settlement and attorney fees has led me to bankruptcy. 4 years ago I had 2 homes and and half a million dollars. Now my only home is in forclosure. I dont know what I would have done differently, the time I have had raising my son has been fantastic. But now I just can't figure out how to start-over at 47.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
