So sick of the crap.
I thought I finally had an out. It seemed so perfect that I jumped on it in half a second.
My wife and I were arguing (again, nothing new). This time though, she got wild, and began swinging at me while I had my daughter in my arms. She connected my my body and my face while I was shielding the baby.
I left immediately. I wasn't going to hit back. I took the child. I called the police to report. The police went, and...... filed a report, I guess?
No handcuffs, no jailtime for assault. No CPS to take her kid away. I couldn't even have them remove her from my home because "she has a kid to take care of too, and she's on the mortgage", according to one of the officers.
When her ex did the same thing to her, she called the cops and they threw him in a cage for a whole year.
I thought this was the end of steplife for me, but as it turns out where I live, the standards are different from women to men.
This actually happened, yesterday. I can't believe it myself.
