In short, after my sons father threatened me to abort our son two years ago when I got pregnant I forgave him when our son was born and gave him a chance to make things work and give our son a family. I found out two weeks ago that he was cheating on me the entire time since he refused to move in together saying he was saving for a house so I was living with my parents. By the way we are in our mid twenties. I eventually moved out on my own with my son and he never attempted to move in even though I often told him he should. He hardly made time for our son or family saying he was working so much overtime and then resting when he could to buy us a house...
It broke my heart to find out he's been cheating because I made so many sacrifices, have raised our son as a single mom, and forgave him for a lot, only to be cheated on and lied to. He said that I drove him away to not want to make things work but I don't believe that for a second. I feel now that he used me and took advantage the entire time so I wouldn't file for child support. I have already filed for child support and says I'm getting revenge on him and ruining things for our son. I know he's just being selfish now, but has anyone gone through something similar? Any advice as I move forward with raising my son and having to deal with someone so selfish and cruel?
