My ex-wife came to me for help when her new boyfriend started abusing her and I let her and her new baby come to live with me because she had nowhere else to go, but I thought I made it clear to her that she wasn’t to have anything more to do with the guy who had abused her.
Now I come to find out she has been seeing this guy again and I feel like a real dope.
