My boyfriend of 5 years and I have a 20 month old and Im due in July with another. But I left him the other day because he keeps freaking out and breaking things and then leaving my daughter and I home alone all day. He doesnt work, hes just with his friends and stuff. Im in the process of moving out right now and have been staying at my moms. But I cant stop feeling like its not the right thing to do. I miss him and I really want to make things work but now he's saying maybe its best if we're not together. Our relationship lately has just turned into me taking care of our daughter and wanting him to be more involved with her. Her father and I havent had much of a relationship together for a while. I feel like we were trying to make it work for the kids. But I dont want it to be that way anymore. I want to be happy with him and I want him to be happy with me and show me he really cares about our family. I just dont know how to mend it. We've been through so many fights. I dont feel like we'll ever really be happy.
i had the same problem with DH. We weren't married at the time... but instead of leaving, we talked about it... ALOT. Eventually everything got better. I know that not everyone is the same and not every relationship is the same so maybe time apart will help.
