My child's father and I were never married. We broke up only a few days prior to becoming aware of my pregnancy, which was long enough for a new relationship to blossom between himself and the woman who is now his wife.
Since the day I saw "pregnant" the drama has been ongoing. I have come to terms with the "single parent" life and I am okay with it. In fact, I love it! My child is my greatest accomplishment thus far!
But, then there's the newlyweds. Throughout my pregnancy it was one issue after the next. This girl thrived on making me as miserable as possible, for example, shed say "It's not my problem she's pregnant" to one person, and then "Oh we'll have to go on a vacation before the baby gets here so we can catch up on rest. Heaven knows we'll need it!" to the to someone else. Talk about one face, one mouth and two totally different attitudes! I was accused of being a liar because the baby couldn't be his one, and then Id get messages from her asking what kind of clothes she should buy for baby.
In the first 2 months of our child's life, my ex-partner would visit once or twice a week. This would happen mostly on weekdays while I was on Maternity Leave and the fiance was at work. Don't get ideas, the sight of him nauseates me. My point is, it seemed like he wanted both portions of his life to remain separate.
Throughout all of this, I continue trying to maintain my composure for the sake of my child who is now 14 months old. He has JUST attempted to establish visitation through the court, after being absent for the last 6 months. Mind you I've never denied him the opportunity to visit his child, in fact if anything I've always encouraged it!
Rather than establishing a relationship with each other one on one as we had originally agreed upon, he requested that the agreement be revised so that he would be able to bring a "chaperone" as per his wife's request due to her discomfort resulting from us being alone. Why, oh why, would anyone in their right mind commit to not only a relationship but a MARRIAGE, if first of all, they know that there are children involved and are opposed to it, and secondly, can't trust the other person further than they can see them!?
I've attempted to speak with her to basically request that all ill feelings toward me please be set aside when it concerns my child. It's not the child's fault that things are the way they are. The fact that someone can be so insecure, devious, manipulative, and down right crazy sickens me, and the fact that my child will be exposed to such madness infuriates me! I know that five years from now all of this may all be in the past, but right now it's one big mess!
Any insight on this would be very much appreciated.
