    Fortunately your family loves you, has your back and your best interests at heart. Your bf is a danger and a loose canon. Stop making excuses for him.

    You may believe that you are asserting your "independence" from your family by living with a mentally ill, cheating, abusive guy, but the harm you are doing to yourself and your child by staying with him is clear to your family.

    Read up on controlling and abusive relationships. In addition to very quick involvement, very quickly living together, getting pregnant right away, making you financial dependent, he is now also trying to isolate you. Remember how he threatened you if you left the house and took your child to visit your mother? Remember him stabbing himself with a piece of glass to manipulate you?

    Unfortunately, they are right about your bf, his cheating, disrespect for you and abuse. Your family was totally correct to get upset and alert him before he killed all of you because of his distractions, mental problems and reckless driving. Your bf most likely took it out on you that he scared the heck out of your family with his bad driving.

    Your family loves you and seem to want to protect you from this louse. Sadly your rebellious nature makes you cling to him no matter how badly he is treating you. In addition to lying, cheating and manipulation, most abusers like this guy will try to isolate and sever you from your supportive family. He will create drama and try to convince you they are the "bad guys".

    they now think he has a problem and they don’t think I’m “good” with him. I feel like my family now hates him and doesn’t think he’s good to me.

    we were driving and almost got into an accident and my fiancé was driving so my dad and sister yelled to stop and to pay attention.

    Thank you. They love him, they have done so much for him. Like getting him a job with my dad. It’s just this one time incident that happened that I think has messed it all up

I guess I’m defensive when it comes to people talking down on my partner because I love him.. who wouldnÂ’t be right??
    Okay, you are a mother now, so the arguments about someone else has no right to be concerned about you because they are not perfect need to end and its time to put away childish ways of looking at things.

    So your sister knows what its like to be cheated on, knows how to recognize it and doesn't want you to go down the same path with a two timer - she is married to her cheater but does NOT want her sister to marry a man who cheats so she is not fated to the same outcome. If i was married to a cheater and had to accept my lot, i would scream at the top of my lungs, buy a billboard or do whatever so my sister or brother did NOT marry a cheater.

    The measure of a man is not "he has never hit me" -- my ex's family said "well he's a great man because he never broke your jaw". Really? that is where you set the bar?
    He cheated - he raises his voice, he may have instability due to his diagnosis. I would absolutely NOT MARRY THIS MAN. If you do, you will be soon divorced, or the bigger fear, you will become a codependent shell of a woman always making excuses for him - even when he cheats again. LEARN from your sister's mistakes, don't pretend you are so much better if you will not

    It doesn't mean you have to marry him. I am all for intact families, etc, but you didn't know this guy long enough before he showed his true colors. You can coparent with him -- set up visitation and file for child support, but don't let your feeling of OH i LOOOOVE him mean that you subject yourself to a life of mess.

    It definitely doesn’t mean I have to marry him Which is why I’m not rushing it at all. Thank you!

    Okay then. Well if you stay with this man, don't complain if he cheats again or if he threatens suicide again or treats you badly again. You are choosing to be with him knowing these things can happen.

    We try to help those who are having a bad time and want better. You made the decision to stay with him, so accept whatever comes your way now.

    Please re-evaluate what a best friend is. Best friends don't get naked with another woman, nor do they lie, manipulate or betray.
