My soon-to-be ex decided she didn't want to be married to be as she wasn't "invested" in the relationship. We had been having issues, but she made no attempt to seek help and brushed off my attempts to discuss it. If it was just she and I then there would be no issue - I would just move on. But I thought she loved me - after all, she agreed to marry me and we have a 13 WEEK OLD CHILD! Instead, she has chosen to run back to the arms of an ex who cheated on her relentlessly. With her decision I am faced with not being able to be with my child everyday, something I've been hoping/dreaming of my whole life. And not as a result of something I've done, but because of a poor, misguided decision on her part. How am I supposed to deal with this without exploding? I am able to watch my daughter most mornings, so I am thankful for that - but the way the ex looks at it I have nothing to complain about - I'm finally a dad, now all I have to do is pay her child support. According to my lawyer there isn't too much I can do about it either - as the woman, she holds the cards. I feel like someone who was hit by a drunk driver - they understand what they've done, but don't feel any remorse or responsibility for the consequences they've inflicted. I have to say that I'm unbelievably happy for my baby girl - of course - but figuring out how to forgive the ex at this point is virtually impossible.
