I’m a man. I’m a son. I’m a father. I’m going thru a divorce. It’s all overwhelming but then I see who else is going thru this.
Why am I doing this?
- It’s therapeutic for me in some capacity
- I want to detail the issues going on in Family Court.
- I want to help other fathers and men that will be going thru this
- I want to change the system
I started with humble beginnings. Lower-middle class family. Moved from a small city to a big metro area. Then my parents divorced. It wasn’t clean. There was some nastiness. The kids were used. This was in the mid-80s.
Then I grew up. I had some adventures. I got to do some things in life. I met great people and some nefarious ones. I got in to trouble and then changed my life. I focused on me.
Then I thought I met a woman I could get married to. It just happened and then we had kids. Time went on and a career, life and more growing happened. As all these things intertwined, the two people who traded vows grew apart. Discussions got heated and then argumentative. Worlds grew even further apart and we weren’t even in the same universe as far as ambition, motivation, life and love.
The day I stated “I don’t love you anymore,” my world blew up. I was left and the kids removed. That’s when the true nature of someone became apparent.
Life is an evolution physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. If you can’t learn to merge together in these aspects with your partner, it’s doomed. That’s what happened to me.
Now, since September 5th, 2017, I have been living in a nightmare. I have been accused of things to gain leverage of a situation. Being a man, the Family Court system has been used to abuse me. It’s time for me to speak out and speak up so that I can help others.
