I kicked my husband out when I found that he was having an affair. We have a two-year old daughter, and both of us still love this man. He refuses to give up his girlfriend, but I can’t believe our 10-year marriage is over. Am I foolish to hope we can reconcile?
Dear Wants Him Back,
I’ve been married for 14 years, and I have an 18-year-old daughter from a previous marriage who has just moved out. I’m scared — my husband is abusive, and he’s going to be furious when I leave him. We’re broke because he has maxed out his credit cards with Internet pornography and phone-sex calls, and our house is mortgaged to the hilt to cover debts. I want to get out and start college so I can have a life of my own, but I have no money or resources, and he’s going to hit the roof. What should I do?
I’m going through a divorce, and I have child custody of our two young sons. My wife has been physically and verbally abusive to them, which is why I will be seeking permanent sole custody. I’d like our kids to know their mom, however, so I’ve arranged for supervised visitation. My problem is that my job is transferring me to Germany; I’m the only wage-earner in the family, and we can’t do without my salary. What should I do?
My wife wants to separate and take our two kids with her. She works as a legal secretary and has bragged that she has 14 lawyers ready to help her with her divorce for free — I can’t afford to hire one for myself. I supported her through college, and now she has more resources than me. I don’t want a divorce (though I understand I may not have a choice about this), and I don’t want to lose my kids. What should I do?
Dear Single Dad,
