We Had A Five Year Relationship And A Child Together And I Can't Forgive His Betrayal
(New York, NY)
I was in a 5 yr relationship with the father of my child and suddenly he told me he needed some space. We were arguing a lot but never thought we were going to end up breaking up.
Yesterday he locked himself in the bathroom and I found out he was with someone else. I was a good wife to him and never did anything bad to him. I feel like I was very good to him and I don't deserve all this betrayal.
I know that he will regret what he is doing to me and I won't take him back. I just want to move on with my daughter and forget about him. The hardest part is that I live in his parents' house because my daughter and I don't have anywhere to go.
His father loves me and he is upset on what his son is doing to me and is telling to me stay because if I go, things will get worse. He doesn't want his son to bring other women into his house.
I really want to move on with my life and prove to him I don't need him. The woman he is with is not worth it! Well, thank you. I hope you can answer my story. Response from Dr. DeFoore
