Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following letter from a woman whom we’ll call “Eleanor.” Names have been changed.
The sociopath is my ex-husband. We were married for 10 years, two children, girl and boy. He changed THE DAY we were married.
He has alcohol problem, cheated on me, lies. When I asked him to see marriage counselor, he told me to go by myself. I went for counseling by myself for approximately 4 months and was told, “I can either counsel you to live with him or counsel you to live without him.”
This is way before I figured out he is a sociopath, I decided this was not my idea of love. So I told ex that I was going for divorce.
He was enraged. Would not give me money for lawyer. My sister gave me money. He did not have an attorney and dictated what he would pay for child support and everything he wasn’t going to do. I accepted 50% child support.
