Help. Leaving my boyfriend

Guadalupe - posted on 06/08/2015 ( 3 moms have responded )




I really don't know what to do. I met my boyfriend online about 4 years ago and he is a great guy. I love him so so much but I've been feeling so lonely lately. He works a lot to try to support our 5 month old and I. We live with his parents and 3 siblings and I just can't stand it. I lived in California before I moved in with him to Texas. My whole family are in California and I miss them like crazy. I am tired of putting up with my boyfriends family. His siblings are completely spoiled and disrespectful. His parents are never home (always working or traveling to business meetings) so I'm not only caring for my baby but also their 3 kids. I've talked to my bf about what's bothering me but he just tells me to suck it up. He does not want to get our own place because he finds it easier to live with his parents. I want to leave. I want to move back to California and take my son with me. His parents are really good people but I cannot live under the same roof with them. I feel like leaving will show my bf how serious I am. I've already talked my family about it and they are willing to help. I just don't want to hurt my bf, he is such an amazing dad. I can see how much he loves our son, and I'm just afraid of doing this to him. I just need some advice. And I'm sorry i sound dramatic or something. So if I do leave my bf and move to California from Texas, can I get in some kind of trouble for taking our son?

You could be in big trouble if you just up and leave with your child!
You created a child together and you both have the same rights.
You would be better off talking to your boyfriend and telling him that if he doesn't want to move out with you then you will be moving out on your own. I'm not saying moving states, I'm saying moving out of the house.
I would also suggest going to a counsellor, it makes it easy to get things off your chest with a 3rd party there.

Talk to him again. Tell him your close to just leaving at this point. Your not being dramatic at all. If it's not what you want then somthing needs to be done I guess. Its Good your family are being supportive. I think it's the courage to just up and leave that's the scary part. Truly if you can't seem to find other ways around this then you need to do what's best for you. All the best.
