RedDress Posted September 23, 2011 Share Posted September 23, 2011 I am freaking out. I have a very good friend who is in the process of going through a contentious divorce. The ex-wife? A total psycho. As soon as they filed for separation, she started acting crazy. She would disappear for days at a time. She opened credit cards and started buying the kids cell phones, pets and got their noses pierced (for the two oldest - the kids are 14, 13, 11 and 10). She would yell at him and try to provoke him. She would threaten. She would lie... and now the unthinkable. They are due in court in less than two weeks. Tonight he was texting me throughout the night giving me a play-by-play of his daughter's soccer game. At 9pm, he told me that the police came to his door looking for his ex-wife (who wasn't home, as usual). He was working on homework with the kids. He got the kids to bed and then we spoke on the phone. At midnight, the police showed back up and arrested him on falsified assault charges. This is the most non-violent person I have ever met in my life. This man is like Super-Dad. Always taking the kids to their sports games. Always helping out with their homework. Bringing them to the doctor when they are sick. Attending parent-teacher conferences at school... It's a blatant ploy to gain an upper hand in the divorce proceedings. This is the most heinous thing I have ever seen. I am shocked. I am nautious. I am dumbfounded. I have NO idea what I can do to help or what to say. Please tell me this works out in the end. Please? I am on the verge of tears, I cannot sleep out of concern for my friend, I have no idea what to do. He's in custody right now. How can someone be SO heinous??? A false charge of domestic abuse is the most hideous thing a person can do... I am about to be sick. Any words of encouragement, advice, insight... heck, just a chat would be SO welcome right now...
