When my friend, Edith, felt that her husband was cheating on her, and that he no longer cared for her whatsoever, she went home to her mother’s house taking all her three children with her.
Though the reason for her leaving was clear on her husband who still denied being involved with another woman despite several eyewitnesses, he blamed Edith for the separation. As if it wasn’t enough and he wanted to hurt my friend even more, he said it on her face that he doesn’t love her anymore, still claiming that he was blameless and it was ALL Edith’s fault.
At this point, Edith doesn’t care anymore about how her husband feels for her, what she cares about right now is her children. But even that was being used by her husband to hurt her much much more. He sends only the amount he wants to send, pushing Edith to borrow money from everyone she knows, including me.
Though she wants to work in order to support her children, she couldn’t. Her youngest, who had meningitis when she was a baby, needs constant attention.
And the worst part? Her husband is actually blaming ME for their breakup. He said Edith’s decision was influenced by me. What have I got to do with it? Talk about insufferable jerk.
