Well my story is this, I have been married to my husband for six years but together for 9 we have two wonderful children. My husband is an alcoholic i left him 10 months ago. We share custody of the children and he is in AA and seems to be changing his life around. I am currently dating a man and he has his good and bad points. He hates me communicating with my ex if it is not children related. For example he was angry with me when i he found out i had texted my ex inquiring about his sick father. He read through my text messages. He believes i should take full custody of my kids and i shouldn't care how he feels about it. I have been thinking and rethinking my situation. My daughter says she doesn't mind my boyfriend being around just that she would rather he wouldn't come over every weekend. I tried discussing this with him and he just gets angry saying that i am letting my daughter run my life. I don't see the problem with us doing our own thing. His argument is well when we get married am i gonna have to stay away from my own house so you can be alone with your kids. I understand his point but i am trying to protect my kids and give them much needed attention. I want to believe that my husband has changed so that maybe we can start over but i can't trust that would be right. I fear if i leave the man i am seeing i will live to regret it.
