Me and my ex have known each other for 20 years. There was a group of us, including my husband now. We all started out as friends in high school and me and the ex started dating, then broke up. These two particular men, my ex and current hubby, remained in constant contact throughout the years. When me and the ex decided to give it another go ahead, my current hubby stood by and watched the whole 5 year hell on earth relationship go from bad to worse. When my ex started cheating, I was told by my current hubby. When my ex tried to kick me in my stomach 4 months preganant with twins, my current hubby steped up for me, causing their relationship to end. Since then, me and the currwnt hubby became closer. He watched me go through the spiraling havoc my ex created. After the ex was forced to move from our home after I found a knife under his side of bed, resyraining order and courts forced him to leave. I was terrified after I came home and my ex cleared house of everything! Furniture, food, my clothes, jewelry, bank account, and left a note saying he would come back and set house on fire with me and kids inside. My current hubby stayed with me and kids. Was terrified! A year later, we started dating. We were married a year after our one year anniversary. When my ex found out, he went crazy, trying to get kids from me, taking me to court, and when I put in a move out of state, he threatened to kill me in court. My lawyer made it happen that week. Here we are 4 years later, and I am so happy in my marriage. He is my best friend, knows me very well, and I hear often how unhappy that my ex is miserable living with his mom, and how he wished our relationship had been different. Karma is something.
