When I left my XDP (whom was not DS bio dad but he had never met his bio dad and although he knew XDP wasn't his real dad- he used to call him Dad), I explained that XDP and I thought we'd be much better friends if we lived in seperate houses. We could still see XDP but it might not be as often because taking care of a house can be a lot of work and now we were both taking care of a house each. I didn't really mention DS or say it was anyone's fault. I felt it was irrelevent to the situation.

Ok I need more advice, I found out dp lied to me about something pretty bad and basically tried to put a wedge between my sister and I (which he says he didn't try to do but when he tells me if I go visit them he will leave me I think differently) and now, even though he says he isn't, he's making me feel guilty for us being in a bad situation again! I don't know how to tell him in leaving even though he basically would hVe a feeling I'm leaving. Does anyone have any tips on what I can say to him? It's all about trust and he lied to me an continued that lie for nearly a year so that trust has gone! Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

I didn't tell my ex I was leaving.. we just packed up and left while he was at work. Moved straight into a new rental. We'd been living such separate lives for such a long time. Hadn't slept in the same bed since I fell pregnant- DS was 8 months old when I left. He had already moved on so I didn't really feel I had to tell him I was going. The fact that he owned the house all on his own before we got together made it a little easier to go.

DV is always a consideration and telling him you're leaving is more than likely going to cause a confrontation. Just something to prepare for.
