You can get it back in a divorce accounting if he has to pay you back in order to settle terms. When he dies, as long as you get what you are legally entitled to (usually there is a marital share or marital election - you cannot be disinherited no matter how much hates you) - he can leave anyone anything from anything you are not entitled if he wills it so. This can be an ex-wife, an OW or the mailman. [ Reply | More ]

It might actually be better if they did given your response so far. There needs to be more than this. He needs to be doing chores he hates for the next 6 months after which he gets fifty dollars to spend on a gift for his cousin. Also, up the therapy. And have him research and write a paper on what assault is and the jail time for each type of assault. [ Reply | More ]

I am sorry, but you have to do a better job of controlling his environment. Have you ever been in a laser gun place? It is the last place I would send a kid with the issues yours did. A place with less less stimulation, and more supervisions, like taking the kids to a baseball game is better. [ Reply | More ]

Right, right! I am not going to do that! I am going to keep it very light. For what it is worth, it seems pretty clear that he was drunk, based upon the hour at which this took place (although he didn't make any typos-- so wasn't totally wasted either). I also know that they are having some problems in their marriage right now. This is not the first time that he has pulled a jerk move, from what I understand. [ Reply | More ]

Maybe but a clandestine meeting might make him think you're up for amorous relations. I'd text back in a stern but not angry way like "John, what would your wife think if she saw this? I'm sure you meant nothing by it but if you keep this up I'll have to say something." [ Reply | More ]

^^I warn you that if you tell her, she may accuse YOU of flirting with him, trying to seduce him, etc. When she confronts her DH, that is what he will say--he will try to blame-shift his actions onto you--and you may come off looking like the bad guy. [ Reply | More ]

I am not sure about whether or not he has actually had affairs. I do know that this is not the first time that he has been inappropriately flirtatious with a woman who is not his wife though. Furthermore, they are not getting along very well right now, for a variety of reasons. That said, I don't know, I am not sure that he is actually cheating on her. He is a flirtatious jerk, but I am not sure if he is a cheater. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, but not suggestively. I have nothing to hide and I am fine with showing her the whole string of texts. But I don't want to hurt her feelings. If I mention it, I would kind of prefer to gloss over the details just for her sake-- something like, "XX sent me a pretty strange series of prank texts last night! Seemed like he may have had a little too much to drink! I felt like it was pretty strange." Maybe something like that? All delivered in a lighthearted way. Or I could just approach her DH himself, as some people have suggested here. That might be the better way to go about it. [ Reply | More ]
