Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX hoping to speak privately.
I am engaged and he is cheating.
I have lived with him for 8 years and am not expected to move out of course.
I found out he was cheating and he swore it was "nothing" and over. He later asked me to marry him and to trust the love that he had for me. That he would spend everyday trying to make it up to me.
It was really hard for me, although I did.. I finally said yes. I said multi times that I did not want to put that ring on my finger to only have it taken off in fear that he would cheat again. He swore to me that he would never do that and that the ring was mine no matter what. I had actually designed the ring many years ago.
Now as we were just planning our honeymoon a couple days ago.. I awoke to an email today that stated we were over. He told me not to contact him and said he will contact me after I have time to agree with him...
I am overwhelmed with pain right now and it hurts to think that the ring I designed will be on this other woman's hand. It was a promise made to me and he lied to me, again...
I am wondering if I have any rights. We have lived together for years and he pays for everything.
We live in the state of Florida although he also has a place in NC that is part-time for him. (That of course is where she lives) They were actually living together... He was living with two women at one time.....
Anyway, anything you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Re: Ring. Yes I have had it on for some time now.
Re: Living Conditions: Yes, overtime I have to handle something with the house, contractors, bills, etc... I am referenced as Mrs. Our development has us registered as Mr. & Mrs. because he made it that way.
He has told clients, contractors, neighbors, etc that we are married.
Also says it in a way that allows one to think so. "My better half" etc..
I would say that everyone was shocked when we announced our engagement, just about everyone we intact with thought we were already married.
Thank you again for your time.
I wanted to mention that our relationship was called off by him, because I will not get plastic surgery to enhance my already 38C natural firm breast.
As well as will not change my religion. He has know of my beliefs from day one. He is Jewish.
I was married before to a Jewish man and raised my son in the Jewish beliefs. Our three combined children (1, mine & 2, His) are adults now and have all three have been raised under the Jewish faith. So there is no issue when it comes to the children.
He just all of a sudden has decided, after years of having it, that a Christmas tree is no longer allowed in our home.
* Last year he bought me a 20' artificial Christmas tree. I waited 3 years for this tree and he finally bought it for me, now this year it is no longer allowed.
So these reasons are part of the main issues he has with me and because of I wont change my body, he says he is forced to cheat.
1.Not to thrilled about having to change my body for him
2. Not willing to change my religion after dating him for almost 8 years...
I am sorry for my delay, I am wondering, are you 100% sure that the ring is mine?
The reason I am asking is I spoke to a friends attorney here in Florida and she seems to think, it is not mine and now I am 100% confused.
Thank you so much, thus far you have been very helpful, I just need to be 100% sure of this situation.
I see, thank you so very much for explaining it further.
I appreciate your time so very much!
