“I filed for divorce 3 weeks after he left, not because I wanted one, but as a stay-at-home mom, I had to protect myself and my babies financially. I also had to use the legal system to protect myself from his manipulation. He didn’t like it one bit, but I needed to do it – I stood firm.
My point to all of this is that his reckless behavior never seemed to stop, and I needed to set up some boundaries to protect myself and my children, which I did. At Marriage Helper, we call these STOPs (safeguards that offer protection).
The same husband who cheated on me – The one who made my life a living hell – The one who walked out on his children – Is now home and loving.”
