My family was relocated and my husband was unable to stay with us. Clinical, diagnosed Depression, loneliness, fighting drove him to sleep with a friend. We are moving on together. Working on things. Now she's pregnant. He's trying to be a good father. I'd expect him to be. But that means time away from us...With her. In another city. Most ppl think I'm stupid but I know him. Yes this happened but we're not giving up. I need help, emcouragement, strength, and a friend to talk to...

Does he have to stay there over night for whatever things she needs him there as father of the child for? If it is possible, and its only a couple hours away, can he not go and deal with things and return home? I have a friend who was in this situation. Only she ended up twice trying to make it work and two more times pregnant after those. He wanted her to abort her youngest two kids who are now in teens. She refused. And when her youngest was barely a year old; she found out his girlfriend whom he was living with in his grandmother's home, was pregnant. It happens. Its not what yo uwan to hear, but it happens.

There are times when he goes then comes back the same day. But with only one vehicle and four kids sometimes he has to bus it then stay in a motel. The other woman is living in a sober living home. She has lock down at six. But still. ..

I didn't want another negative comment. No. I do not believe hes sleeping with her. I know how it looks from the outside. Thank you though for reading and responding.

Well. I am glad that he's contributing and being a factor in the child's life, but I think you are way too naive to think that he's not still sleeping with the woman.

Best of luck with the situation. Were I in your shoes, I'd file for divorce, and have support obligations, as well as my kid's visitation schedule already set up.
