My wife of 12 years left me last July. She had been going through a nursing program at an out of town univ. for two years with one remaining. We have three boys together 9,11, and 13 and we agreed that I have them during the week when she's at school and she would take them on the weekends. Since July she's been involved with a man who is also her classmate, which has me worried. Over the past few months she's been seeing our boys less and less and doesn't seem to worry too much about them when she's not there. We tried to handle this without lawyers at first but seeing how she was behaving and my trust in her being shattered I felt it necessary in case she tried to move them with her when she graduates in June. She admits she expects me to get custody if it goes that far but doesn't seem bothered by it. I come from an old fashioned upbringing and can't imagine her not being there for them but fear that's where it's headed. All I want is to make sure my boys don't leave town. She won't tell me what her plans for the future are but knows she won't live here again. She thinks i'm trying to take them from her but all I want is what I already have. I ask nothing else from her but to be there for the kids. How can I convince her that no matter what happens the boys need both parents in their lives'. This is very frustrating, if anybody has any suggestions please share.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
