I am a devoted father of a dear 7.5 year old boy with autism. I work full-time providing for my son and wife, Maggie. I leave the house at 5:45 AM, usually get home @ 5:00 PM and spend every lasting minute with my Boy until he goes down for the night. Maggie works part time, Monday and Saturday nights at a restaurant 2 miles from our home. She gets our dear son ready for school everyday put him on the Van at 8:00 AM and is without him until he returns at @3:15PM.
Here's the thing. Maggie had a terrible pregnancy, postpartum depression, has had an anxiety disorder since my boy was born. She plans her day around smoking cigarettes, doing laundry and cleaning (she has OCD). She has been on 5 different medications over the years, she doesn't exercise, and she is just down right mean to me. We cannot have a conversation without her insulting me, saying her life is over, because I forced her to have a child (her words, not mine). She will not try counseling of any kind, she sleeps a ton, she NEVER takes my son out, she barely leaves the house due to her anxiety, and she drops THIS on me last week. "Pack up your Sh*t and Get out!".
I have yet to honor that request, since it would be dangerous for my son to remain relatively unattended/ignored without me there. I am by no means a perfect man, but I DO respect my wife bc that is how I was brought up. She has 0 respect/regard for anyone but herself and EVERYONE in her life feels it. Her sister (S) is a paralegal for a divorce lawyer.....Well S gave me the names of several lawyers she has contact with bc S knows my wife is teetering on the edge and will not do anything to help herself.
Anyone out there in a similar situation? Am I within my rights to tell my wife SHE has to leave? I just don't think it would be a good idea to leave my son living with her alone. The way I see it, one of two things would be good.....my wife would leave and have visitation or my wife would GET SOME freaking help... right?
