Where do I begin again?

So my husband set me down about 4 months ago to confess to me he had an affair with our 24 year old neighbor and the baby she is carrying may be his, but he loves me and don't want to lose his family (we have 3 small children together). For the last 4 months since it has been one thing after another with this girl b/c she was fine with being the other woman but really expected me to leave! I have fought (literally and figurative) to keep my family together and he claims he is too but this girl wont let up on my (I am 36 he is 43) went so far as to call DHS and try to get our kids taken from me. We recently moved in with my sister to get away from the situation but right now, I am too the enough is enough point b/c if he isn't doing anything why is this child coming after me!

You really need to get a lawyer. Not for the both of you, but just for you. It sounds like the OW wants to play hardball. If she knows you are represented, she will probably think twice and might even just go away. I would also make sure you are in therapy. What you do now in terms of these two things will determine how long you will suffer later. Just saying.


We have five kids. Our D-Day was in August, 2008.
