Borderline Personality Disorder
I know that this is from a gossip site, but it’s worth noting that Angelina Jolie has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.

I can definitely see some similarities to my situation, where BM tries to invalidate DH as a parent. She doesn’t try to totally destroy his relationship with SSs because she doesn’t want them at her house all the time, but DH has definitely been cut out of all parenting decisions and roles by her.
Also, DH was entitled to alimony during the divorce and also entitled to a claim on BM’s business, since he took on more child rearing, so she could work more. During that whole process, BM angrily threatened him and he didn’t ask for any of it (he also didn’t have a lawyer and his family refused to help). I told him that if he had asked for alimony or a cut of BM’s business he would have ended up on Dateline as one of those husbands who go missing in the middle of a nasty divorce because the soon to be ex wife had them killed.
