To start from the beginning and to try and make it short and to the point... I have been Married for 3years and things have been going down hill for the last year. My husband is not emotional stable. He has bipolar and I have been trying to get us to go to Marriage counseling for 2 years now and he refused to go. Well on March 17 he emotionaly broke down because we had talked about getting a Divorce about 3month prior and it finally hit him. Well he was beating himself up and punching walls and I was very scared. Our son was sleeping so I went in the room with him and slept in his room for the night. The next day my husband took off of work because he had a headache from punching himself. I took my son to the park with some friends and my Mother. I talked with my mom and told her what had happened and that I thought it would be a good idea to stay at her place for a couple of nights to let things cool down. Mind you my husband was living at his sisters house for 3 weeks then decided to come back home on March 16. I let my husband know I was staying to let things calm down he was fine with it. While at my Moms I had gotten a call from my best friends who happened to be in jail and he called me to come pick him up that his fine was paid and they released him. We went and picked him up and he stayed at my moms for the day. My husband found out that he had gotten out of jail and he changed the locks to the house. he would not let me get clothes for me or my son and the police wouldnt help me at all. My husband told the landlord that I moved out on my own and she elegaly evicted me. I tried talking to her and she was going by his word. Everything I owned which was almost everything in our place I wasnt allowed to get. My husband and I talked about custody with our son and we already had an agreement from december that we were going by even tho we were living together. He said he was fine with it and just to keep it the same. Then I get a letter in the mail from the court house stating that he was fighting me for full custody. Mind you I have been a stay at home Mother for the past 2 years I have been the only one taking care or our son he just helped with the bills. Reason why he was fighting me was because he doesnt like my friend because of his criminal background. He told me that I screwed him ( with what I dont know ) that he wants to make me misrable and never to be happy agian. From the time on April to May my friend and I stating seeing eachother. Then he got put back in jail for violation of parol for not telling them his new address. They had his mothers address not the recovery hous ethey made him go to and he wasnt aware of that. Soo with him back in jail my husband now definetly doesnt want our son around him when he gets out. Hes not a bad guy hes not violant and he had a bad past that he got charges for 5 years ago and is still paying the price for it. Can my husband really say that my new boyfriend is never allowed around our son ever again?? When he gets out of jail he was moving in with me. I just dont know where I stand and my husband isnt doing it for our sons sake he just doesnt want me to be happy and I dont know what to do?? Is there any hope for me? Everyone deserves a chance and I would never put my son around someone that would harm me or him. my son is my world Id do anything for him. But am I not allowed to be happy?? I dont need any rude comments or opinions I need advice there is a difference!! I want to know if there is anyone out there that can relate. Not to be judgmental!!
