My 18 year old just said he is moving in to his Dad's house with his girlfriend who had had an affair with that caused us to divorce. He has been a Disneyland Dad the past 7 years and hardly supported his son. However, he planned with my son, to take all his clothes and stuff from his room and sneak them to his Dad's house.
My son finally talks to me after two days on the phone I am paying for and the phone bill I am paying for and says that he is a man and wants to live with them now. That he believes them that they did not have an affair even though our families (her ex) always did things together.
I supported him through high school and his activities as his dad and girlfriend did nothing or attended very little of his activities.
I am hurt, devastated on how my son has turned against me but expects me to continue to pay for his phone and bill and his car insurance. I leased a car for him to drive while at my house so now I am stuck with a second car and insurance payments. How do I move on? I can't stop him as he's 18 but what to do or think? I paid the first semester of college as his dad refused so who knows if he will go when it starts next month. Please advise on how to live without him?
