It is a premarital home so she doesn't have any right to that house. She moved out last month. He is currently living there. I own my own place. I don't want to move in his house a place they lived together for over a decade and a place she just moved out.

The plan is for him to live with me for a while while he remodels the pre-marital home.

The attorney suggested that he wait to move in with me as this may anger her and make her irrational during the negotiation process. He suggested that we wait till after the agreement is signed and entered into court.

(a) he's an absolute self centered idiot with the emotional intelligence of a clam

(b) he's lying about the state of his marriage

For the sake of the op, as bad as it is to say, I hope it's that he's lying because he's trying to cover his rear. The alternative is that he is a man who would sacrifice the mental well being of is own child to assuage his guilt. That's got to be one of the most disgusting ideas I've seen on here, which is why I really hope he's lying.

Being deceptive is bad, but it's a heck of a lot better than this. At least if he's lying, the op may be able to encourage him to get into some therapy so he can sort through all of this and hopefully come out the other end as better partner who won't hurt the op the way he is hurting his wife.

Also, if it was a bs who went out of her way to get pregnant when she knew her spouse was cheating because she thought it would make him stay, I fully expect there would be a huge backlash, which is just as it should be. you don't use children that way.

Op, I know it might seem like we are beating up on you, and I can certainly understand how it could feel that way. Many of us simply don't want to see you end up being hurt by this guy. I know you want to be with him, love him and hope to spend your life with him. Those are all good things, just be very, very careful to not let rose coloured glasses keep you from protecting yourself.
I think all of us and the op included may be getting way ahead of ourselves..from what is put here from op and various posters is..

-The mm starts an affair
-Then while in an affair ..goes through ivf and the couple are successful the 8th time and are blessed with a child (which according to op the mm did not want .but gave his wife one last gift .)

-continues the affair last 3 years
-Still living with his wife and child
-told the op that wait for wife to move out so he can move her in (which I don't see happening as now thier is a child so any moving now has to be either done by him or sell the home .

-as per op discussion of divorce has been happening for last one year ..but op does not mention if it's actually filed .instead mentions they are discussing child visitation plan ...which can be done after a divorce also when the case is for custody of the child .

Mm does not move out ...op has discussed with married man but are working out the logistic ..

I think o.p you are getting way ahead of your self and calling her soon to be ex ...if this mm is leaving good for you but i advice you to keep a low profile where all this custody plan and his child visitation plus where he can stay when child comes to visit talk ....this mm may not be going anywhere .

Did he actually file for a divorce ?as you already seem to know that child is staying with her and may come to visit .What exactly they are then hashing out for last one year ...i don't want to reign on your parade but dont get too ahead of your self ...you might want to detail the after life of his family after a divorce is filed and final. Just a suggestion.good luck .

I am a little scared of what she is going to do next. They are not officially divorced yet.
Scared of what? What could she possibly do to you that you have not done to her? Why on earth has it taken a year and they are still not divorced. He doesn't need her approval to divorce he can just do it.

A lot of familiar names causing a lot of familiar trouble here lately.

As another member had to point out, the OM/OW forum is just like any other forum here. It is designed for advice and to be helpful and supportive to the OP regardless of your personal opinion of the situation they have found themselves in. If you can't do that feel free to display your disapproval with your lack of reply.

As I said, many familiar names have been sanctioned already. You know who you are, you all know our guidelines, and have become adept at tap dancing around them.

Consider this fair warning that this won't be tolerated. No more pushing boundaries. Post out of line in the infidelity areas, be banned.

OP, I return the thread to you and encourage very liberal use of the "ALERT US" function. ~T

Thanks much William. I am fairly new to the forum and don't post much, I will surely follow your suggestion using "Alert us" in the future when needed. thanks again.

Divorce can take a long time. Mine took a year and I did not even have a checking account with him. He contested it, kept tossing the papers. I have male friends whose divorces took years and years. One, 4 years, another it's been 1.5 years so far and there is barely any progress. He filed over a year ago and just moved out to his parents house.

Probably she unblocked you to check up on you. But I will say I unblocked xmm's wife as a sign to myself that I was over all the drama and pain. Granted I realize it is a different situation but just throwing it out there.

I didn't realize you were getting bashed?

If you thought what I shared was aimed at you in some way instead of meant as helpful then I sincerely apologize... wasn't meant that way at all. It was only me trying to show concern.

My intent was to share a possibility that is, unfortunately, not out of the question. In fact, my opinion was based on more than just IVF. It's also the timeline you shared and the fact that his actions are closely aligned with narcissism and display a need for control over the women in his life.

I've been on both sides of that coin.

It's concerning to me, though, if you feel like people on this board are bashing you because their answers don't meet your expectations. If you feel the need to be defended that might be another red flag that you're being used. You might be connecting with that realization on a subconscious level that throws a wrench in your efforts to analyze and ask for advice. You feel like a victim deep down and it manifests in your outreach in this forum.

I think we all just want you to be careful because we actually do care... at least that's how I feel. I hate to see anyone hurting - the wife, you, the man, the child. No adult here is 100% to blame or 100% innocent. The only innocence that deserves protection is that child. All of you need to consider that, too.

It doesn't matter what your background is or which role you fill in this relationship if you feel called to share your story in a forum like this one you have to be prepared to hear things that you really don't want to hear.

That's not aggression aimed at you... it's more like playing "devil's advocate" which is always a good way to gauge possible outcomes.

That's why people write lists of "pros and cons" - because you need to inspect a situation from every possible angle to make well-informed, wise decisions about life.

Good luck to you.
