Study says kids do better with fathers in the home – but doesn’t mention sociopathic fathers

Boy crying while sitting on the stairsResearchers at the London School of Economics say that children born to a single mother have better health, intelligence and social skills when their biological father lives with them.

Kids fare no better if a stepfather joins the family than they would if their mother stayed alone.

Many studies claim to “prove” that kids are better off when they live with both their mother and father. Unfortunately, these studies rarely determine if the father is disordered.

As Dr. Liane Leedom explains, living with a disordered parent is not good for kids at all. In fact, these kids can be seriously damaged.

But because of the cultural belief that “all kids should have two parents,” many well-meaning parents try to stay with disordered partners, when they and the kids would probably be better off escaping.

Manipulative woman seduces her husband’s best friend, part 1

LETTERS LOGO 2Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following story from a reader whom we’ll call “Kirk.”

First let me say how much your videos really opened my eyes to how I was used and manipulated by someone I ended up trusting despite her poor track record in the past. Your video about “Love Bombing” was “spot-on.”

In late January, I started a separation process from my wife of 7 years where I’ve moved the majority of my personal possessions and my home office (for a part time business I run from our apartment) into the guest room of the house of my best friend of 6 years. I’ll call him “Tom” and his wife I’ll call “Mary.” If it wasn’t for this awkward position I’m in regarding my part-time living arrangement, this whole affair most likely may never have occurred.

My psychopathic husband – the more I learned, the worse his behavior got

Spath TalesMarried in 1999, 2 children, I filed for a divorce January 2015, trial begins soon.

He was arrest for a DWI and Felony Aggravated Assault while drinking the first few years of our marriage, which got reduced.

I believed all his strange stories for years until 2009 when I caught him cheating and a lot of money went missing from our company. This is when I began suspecting everything he said because many times things didn’t add up.

The more I learned the worse his behavior got, and now it wasn’t just emotional abuse it became psychical and sexual.

I began really researching. Initially I would just google questions about his behavior and by 2011 I knew he was a Psychopath.

He was lying up to the last minute of our relationship

Spath TalesEditor’s note: Lovefraud received the following story from a reader whom we’ll call Lana-Marie.

We met online. He was a perfect gentleman on our dates. We had several dates until he started talking about mind, body and spirit. (which meant sex to him) and I mentioned I do not have sex just to be having sex. That night he says let’s be boyfriend and girlfriend.

So we did become BF and GF. I assumed (stupid, but trusting, me) that he would take his dating profile down since now in a committed relationship. I took mine down and never looked again, until one day my GF called me and told me that she was just matched (online dating site) with him. AND that he was currently online searching.

Of, course I called him and he told me some bull story. He says he will take it down and not go on it again.

In A Relationship With A Sociopath, We Come To Accept the Unacceptable

Husband Liar Sociopath

Every week, a chapter of my book, “Husband, Liar, Sociopath: How He Lied, Why I Fell For It & The Painful Lessons Learned” (available via Amazon.com, just click on the title or book cover) will be published here on Lovefraud. To read prior chapters, please see the links at the bottom of the post.

Chapter 40A:

Whether I was alone or on the phone with a friend or my mother, tears flowed daily. I felt worthless, entombed in quiet despair. Hardly anyone would argue that, with Daniel twelve and Jessica going on fifteen, parenting would be a breeze. Yet, my parenting unraveled far more than can be attributed to dealing with two young teenagers or preteens. I grew increasingly short-tempered with Daniel and Jessica and nagged them constantly.
