Hi my name is Kathy and I'm new to Daily Strength. I just recently finalized my divorce in January(although the marriage has technically been over in my eyes for a year). My husband of two years had an affair with one of my very good friends. I obviously left him and am now living with my two year old daughter. My ex just randomly (literally in one day told me and left that night) went back to his homestate of Indiana. Since then (he left in December) I've seen one payment of child support. Which isn't even close to being the icing on the cake. For someone whose daughter "means the world to him and he loves her so much" he now calls when he feels like having a daughter. He's allowed to call twice a week to talk to her before she goes to bed and I probably get a call from him every couple of weeks. Now seeing shes only two she doesnt quite understand, but as she gets older its going to confuse her. Well, I recently found out that he remarried this girl he had the affair with literally a month after the divorce was finalized(this was after I had to press charges against him for harassment because he was calling constantly saying how much he loves and misses me) and is not supporting and taking care of HER two kids. It breaks my heart that he doesn't want to be the father that he used to want to be, and now my child has to deal with the fact that her father is a royal jerk.
