I was with this man for 14years and we have 12yr old twins together
We slit up 4 years ago due to him cheating but we remained friends then at Xmas he asked if we could give it another try .. which I said yes but 4 days later he said it wasn’t what he wanted... he has hurt me so bad and been vile to me and my children want nothing to do with him as he has hurt them so bad ,his reason is he wants to be on his own and be a player.
He is an alcoholic and I’ve been searching online as none of the above made any sense to throw away a family that loves you to be renting a battered old caravan.I found about brain damage through alcohol and some of it fits how he is .He is in denial when he feels ill and says he doesn’t need help as he is half dead anyway....
I really don’t know what to do he’s 40yrs old ,I have people telling me he’s not worth my time and I’m better off without him ... if only it was that easy
Please any advice
