Since we have some new posters who find it hard to believe that any of us (or our spouses/partners) have dealt with crazy before, why don't we tell our stories for them?
In the interests of saving time, let's assume that this will be a sux thread :o)
I'll start. SO's ex had a string of affairs and is still with the last OM, the one that finally ended the marriage. He met me about 2 years after the split. About 6 mos into our relationship, she called him up crying that she wanted him back, couldn't they make it work for SD's sake, etc. I was lying beside him at the time. She regularly did these drunken midnight calls for a few weeks. One time she called him when her and SF were having a flaming row and SO could hear SD crying in the background. She was probably about 6 at the time, and it was 1am on a school night.
BM wanted to take SD to Zimbabwe. SO refused permission for her to leave the country, and BM did not let him speak to SD for the next three weeks. We still don't know what happened during that time, which was when they had planned to go.
BM drove drunk and put her car into a wall, with SD in the back seat. She got them home and instructed SD to lie to the police so that BM wouldn't lose her licence.
Mine is one of the calmer sitchs though - let's hear from the ones who have really gone through hell with their exes/spouse's exes.
