I am a betrayed husband, my wife remains so self centered and ambivalent that we are now moving to separation and divorce. We were enrolled in EMSO but she quit at week 10, right before relapse prevention and started a new affair. I know she is toxic and I have to get away from her, but my kids, they are 2 and 7, girl and boy. I’ve read that my daughter is going to have significant issues because of this and my son will end up hating me because I’m the one who left. What do I do? I can’t stay in the same state so I can take my kids and my wife won’t let me take them even though she said she knew it would be best for them. I just don’t want them to suffer because she was incapable of recovery.
