This is the original thread.

Ex-Wife sends death threats to husband when husband reveals to their kids (aged 15 and 16) that they divorced because of her infidelity.

What happens? + 268 points

I want to point out that what you did is classic parental alienation.I don't care if she banged every pizza boy for 10 zip codes. You need to separate her actions against you, with her rights and duties as a parent to her children. Using your issues with her (however valid) to drive a wedge between her and her kids is not only wrong, but she could absolutely take you to court over it and possibly win. You have violated her parental rights. You need to make some amends.

Great fucking legal advice! Just what this guy came here for. To hear some armchair neckbeards talk about how his wife is the victim and this idiot goes so far as to saying that he needs to make AMENDS with a potentially hostile woman.

And then there's the classic projection from White Knights, Incels, and SJWs.

Honestly, the more I read this guy's posts the more I realize why the wife decided that infidelity and leaving him was the way to go. I'm not saying she had that the right way round, but I don't blame her for wanting out of the marriage.

Isn't it amazing how much push back this simple concept is getting here? A lot of people who don't understand how to handle adult problems like mature adults.

I know right? That woman shouldn’t be threatening the father of her children! Oh, wait, you think the woman threatening to kill someone is the victim...because the actual victim dared tell his kids the hard truth when they asked?

Legal advice is a shithole.

And now here's the original BOLA thread. Another thread filled with classic assumptions. LAOP talks reasonable and is coherent in his tone, he MUST be a narcissistic abuser and manipulating asshole and the wife is a victim! Everyone even going against this is down-voted.

Then OP posts an update. He confronts his ex wife in a reasonable manner and offers her a way to repair her relationship with his kids. He even tells them about how he was not the "best lover" and that she should be forgiven and that he "forgives" her.

bestoflegaladvice continues to maintain that OP is a psychopath and a manipulative jerk who has "hurt" his kids.

LAOP is still insufferable. Those poor kids :(

Clearly. The father responds in the thread, presenting himself in an eloquent and organized manner. He even attempts to repair the relationship between his ex and his kids.

Apparently the kids are "unlucky" to have such a caring and kind father. He should have lied to them forever. Lying fixes everything right?

"I believe I handled this perfectly." isn't very humble.

Sure, that was cocky. Better call him a sociopath, then!!! Better say that he thinks he's a God!

Like those statement aren't extreme and overly confident in one's abilities to judge character.

Of course he isn't an angel. What a stupid concept. And he's admitted as much. So why are you castigating him so hard for not being fucking angelic? You've been frothing at the mouth over this guy's story, calling him a monster. Where's your halo?

Downvoted. Why? Because apparently OP is supposed to be this infallible angel and the poor womyn is being oppressed by such a kind father who, supposedly, forgave her cheating and even tried to help her repair her relationship with the kids.

You can even go to church everyday before breakfast, but what you told here is just awful. You think you are a type of God who can manipulate the emotions of your kids. You are even a worse parent than one that cheats. Thats why you got so many downvotes. You arent seeing reality. Again, this is what you considered to share. Im scared about what other terrible things you do to those poor kids. Instead of helping them. Terrible.

+41 upvotes. OP is getting savaged.

Oh, and how could one forget! The infantilization of two teenagers. Apparently they should be kept in the dark about why their world was shaken to the core. Apparently, they are too young and stupid to understand that their mother was a whore and that their world was shattered because of it. And supposedly, they aren't able to think for themselves and are clearly being manipulated by, as armchair psychologist eloquently puts, a sociopath.

And people wonder why men face difficulty in family courts.

edit: thanks for gold!

This twoness is inbuilt in their minds and essential to them.

Neah, the guy plays the victim just as much and worse still -- in front of his children.
It's ok to tell children the truth IF/WHEN they can understand it and IF AND WHEN they ASK for it.
But for fuck's sake, don't be a wimpy bitch and involve your children in your bitter vendetta against your whore wife.
Just because she cheated on his beta ass doesn't mean she doesn't love her children or that she's a bad mother.

4 upvotesPuncledorf2 years ago

He made that last part clear I thought, and that they asked for it. Could he have handled it a hell of a lot better? Yeah. Definitely. However, the kids asked for it, they were 16 that's old enough to have an understanding and start making independent decisions, and even if he was being vindictive about it that doesn't give her the right to threaten death and having internet armchair psychologists berate him and not at all acknowledge that a crime has been committed in threatening to kill him and that there's a creation of an abusive relationship there, well, shitheads. Also don't go "beta ass" bullshit, fuck off with that shit.

1 upvotestrpraducu2 years ago

Yes, I was talking about him threatening her that he'll tell his children about her threats, I'm sure the kids didn't ask him about that.
He has every right to tell the kids the truth if they demand it.

Well that's a response to having your life threatened, but the threat should be to go to the police not the kids, it's an understandable response to having your life threatened though and just try to get her to stop.

This in the comments is what just rustles the jimmies.

You should also understand that you are being emotionally destructive to your kids.

Oh, like fucking around on the pair bond and literally destroying the family unity? She gets a pass on that, but informing the kids of WHY they have no family isn't ok? Fucking cunt (the person that posted that comment). You know what is emotionally destructive to kids? When the world you tell them about and the world they see is different. They aren't stupid. They know someone or both of them fucked up. They should understand causes and effects instead of fearing all they are told is a lie.

Of course, she shouldn't be cut off from her kids. She sure as hell ohs them an apology and atonement though.

And yes, this would be the same if the man did it.

Don't be daft.

You don't need a control when there have been hundreds of previous controls. We don't need a fucking control to know that if I leave an expensive bike in a populated metropolitan area unchained for 24 hours, it's as good as gone.

We already know this game. We know the outcome, we know the sexes are treated differently. This is literally ALL this subreddit talks about... with example upon example, upon example given.

So I'll repeat what my friend has said, yet again.

You don't need to do experiments when you already know the results.

And I'll go a step further: If you need to actually see the control play out given overwhelming evidence, you're an idiot.

Nothing and no one is above scientific method

5 upvotesthrowaway-aa22 years ago

Another no thought length of a tweet response.

  1. "The scientific method" approach to problems forms understandings that are held and executed on after the fact. What does that mean. If we find out Vitamin C has a positive effect on 10,000 out of 10,000 people in a study, you would then come to the conclusion that Vitamin C is good for everyone. You wouldn't have every subsequent individual run their own glorified science experiment, this isn't the way the world works. When the RDA makes minimum guidelines, they're basically saying "based on our research and general knowledge, we assume as truth that you need these things in your body". They don't need to physically come to you and conduct an experiment on you. You use the "scientific method" to establish a truth, and then you abide by the truth until that same method evolves or disproves that truth.

  2. TheRedPill largely is a movement that is AHEAD of science. A lot of studies and science are confirming what RP, and the originators of RP, have known and taught for a long time.

  3. People place WAY too much value on science. It's one form of feedback and knowledge. Guess what? When people were practicing meditation back in the prehistoric ages, did they have or need science to confirm is efficacy? Science confirmed LATER that meditation had provable benefits. Is there any chance that someone with your mindset would have came up with meditation, something that science emphatically embraces now? No, because you depend on science for your truth, ignoring that a great deal of science is spurred on by someone who knew the truth (or had a hunch about it) prior to it being scientifically proven (hypothesis) Let's go further: Does the natural place any value on science? No, else he wouldn't be the natural.

  4. There's a TON of bullshit science. We know from experience that the scientific world is subject to the same corruption and misinformation as any other body of authority is.

So essentially you've lost this on multiple fronts. Scientific method proves truths and then the truths are used until changed or disproven. When I say you don't need a control for this specific situation, it's because hundreds if not thousands of similar controls exist on this subreddit, and you'd know that had you been here for a while. Science is but one form of feedback, and science is largely pushed forward by hypothesis, which is someone having a hunch about something before it's medically or scientifically proven... in fact, if people didn't have this inclination, science would be almost useless. And lastly, some of the best teachings in the WORLD at their inception had absolutely no correlation with science.

Don't be one of these people who think science is the end all be all, else you wouldn't fucking be here, you'd be nose deep in some scientific tome. You want science, go to the science subreddit and fuck off with that fanaticism, it has no place here.

1 upvotesthrowaway-aa22 years ago


1 upvotesthrowaway-aa22 years ago

I don't understand. Fence sitters already can search through hundreds if not thousands of examples on this site. I think an important part of the teachings is to trust in their consistency. You shouldn't have to find out your girlfriend, or another girl, isn't a unicorn the hard way. I think collectively all of the"controls" go a great deal towards grounding this idea of AWALT, but I don't think the right mindset is wanting to see an example play out in every single situation. Essentially what I'm saying, is if someone wants to chime in with their example....cool! If a beginner needs an example because they're like "but but but we're treated equally" then they just need to lurk here longer. And I think you and I know how this plays out if the sexes are swapped since we've seen this "experiment" play out tons of times on this sub: "oh identical post, changes genders, completely different responses, call out that 2 identical posts got different responses, deletion of thread".... Right? I've seen this specific type of post so many times it's boring at this point.

Tl:dr; controls help from a broad perspective, but is by no means required as was implied. We want to instill the teachings so that new people KNOW how a situation will play out without having to see the example every time. That's also an important part of the RP maturation process. They should not need a control for every specific situation (their own girlfriend, etc)

Try it out if you want, next time you find a sexist bullshit post, take it, switch the nouns and post it... I never put much energy into it. It doesn't always "take" but every now and again you get some mind boggling replies, it's great when people can have honest conversations about the hypocrisy of it all (it has happened where people were able to admit unfair double standards).

I generally always do these things with throw away accounts, I found it didn't work so well when you have history people could look into.

I've seen other people do this tho and post screen caps, but I'm really unsure where I've stumbled upon these caps... and am too lazy to look up... if anyone has ideas, they should step in a link them. I only ever tried it because it was suggested by others...

Make sure we comment things like this

When I was 12, I sneaked out with my at-the-time girlfriend. He made no effort to search for me but when I came back home, he was waiting for me. He didn't get angry or yell at me. He just told me to sit on this chair (we called it the Punishment Chair) and he made a few quick, deep cuts with a dirty knife.

And then have someone post something like /u/Siren_Of_Madness

But it isn't an excuse or a reason for you to continue the family tradition of abuse. Just because you don't stab your kids with a dirty knife doesn't mean you're a great parent.You should take a long, hard look at the similarities between you and your dad. Your kids deserve to be treated with respect and compassion - you have demonstrated NONE of that in your actions. And it isn't just "the way you write" or a consequence of growing up in a military househole - it's the choices you make and the words you use. This is the path you've chosen. Is it really the path you want to continue down?

I wonder how Reddit will react. Hey Madness, you should be fucking ashamed for saying that. You're the type of person that deserves to be in an actual abusive relationship.

Infidelity definitely hurt our kids. In fact, the reason I found out was because it did.

I was on a business trip for a weekend and my wife was in charge of the household for those two days. My kids had this event at their school (I think it was a game or a competition) around 8 PM or so. Anyways, their mother said she would pick them up. The event ended around 10 PM. She arrived past midnight.

Fortunately, there were custodians in the building but my kids waited in a nearly abandoned building for two hours in the dead of night. They told me immediately once I came back. My wife told me she had some "work" to attend to. Bullshit.

With a little bit of digging, I found her Tinder profile. She was having sex with a random guy instead of picking up her own kids.

Even if you don´t agree with it the legal advice was on point. Its not a matter if its fair or not, but the truth is that his ex wife can take him to town he if she so desired to and the court system would support her 100%.

The other thing is, why would the guy tell his kids about their mother´s cheating? She might be awalt and all that crap but she´s still their mother.

I don´t see who benefits from crying to the kids that you spouse cheated on you.

He should hedge his bets and make ammends before the crazy bitch tries to get back at him.

He should be more careful what he talks to his children about, they are not his buddies they are his kids.

Most people will side with abusers in any setting (while telling themselves they are supporting "what's"/"who's" right, needless to say!)

They will "condemn violence" and "be against violence", but what violence? The out-moded one society no longer approves of (while it supports and approves new, more feminine types of violence); and the violent (usually direct and visible and loud) reaction of the trampled-on and abused against the abusers (who, being Those with the Power, enjoy to do their violence in a disguised indirect way).

That's what you can expect from the others.

The thing about abusive people is that often times hey are extremely charismatic, powerful, and manipulative. I hated my father but he was one of the most revered men living in my city. Every time he spoke he had this calm sense of solemn authority that everyone obeyed. It's no surprise he was able to mask his psychotic tendencies so well. He was wealthy, respected, authoritative, and powerful.

I feel for you man. Your situation rips my heart out. I just wanted to say that given the circumstance you held pretty strong in your legal advice thread. Personally, I am a fan of the no prisoners approach here. You might consider that your kids will feel better in the long run if they are able to make a full clean break from their mother. And on the other side, I'd say that how you react will teach them how to react. Were I in your shoes, I'd probably do what you're already doing, just let your ex damn herself. Tell the kids that she is broken and needs to be loved, but also show them what a monster she is by straight up showing them what she's doing/saying. Maybe situations like yours can help this subreddit build a "what to do in a divorce" compendium. I already know of one such post in the sidebar, but when you feel there is closure you might consider making a post in TRP on what steps you took.

I had actually went through the opposite of this myself when I was 13 or 14, where my mother broke up with my dad cause he cheated on her, though it was in Russia and they'd actually found a compromise after the initial fallout, the news didn't really fly far and no one cared.

It actually did in fact fuck me up for quite a while, especially since this occured after my mother forced me to visit dad's working place {where he also lived for time being} and we found him in bed with a girl. Then she spent what seemed like an infinity yelling at him until I could not take it anymore and just went home trying to understand what just happened.

Anyway, what I'd got out of this is whoever flips out in front of their kids over this is definitely in the wrong. So don't let anyone tell you that your ex-wife threatening to kill you is your fault. And isn't it funny how women not being treated equally compared to men is a huge issue, yet when it comes to death threats the argument is "95 percent of familly annihilators are male"?

If I reverse the story, she is still a bitch for telling the kids her dad is a cheater. Of course he is the bigger asshole for threatening to kill her and that would be treated far more seriously. The two situations are treated differently of course, but if you step back either way both people in this situation are not 100% victims.

It is both parental alienation and death threats. Maybe some would like to live in a world where men can rightfully alienate cheating mothers.

I was a Hillary supporter (and still consider myself left leaning in terms of how I view politics), but after witnessing so much women's rights BS I've seen and the different kind of movements emerging and even denouncing something I once ardently believed in (feminism), I believe we are starting to reach critical mass for this shit. After my "redpill awakening" almost three years ago and realizing just how good women had it in today's society while still complaining and bitching about wanting more, I realized just how solipsistic and hypergamous women were and just how cringey their orbiters and white knights were. I thought Hillary was a shoe-in, Trump proved otherwise, and here I am today thinking this is exactly what we need.

To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Though this mostly applies to chemistry and physics, I also believe that society has a similar push and pull dynamic as well. There is a reason why this sub is growing in number and slowly becoming more mainstream.

I read the quote on this sub that directly relates to Newton's Third Law that I mentioned above: "Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. Weak men create hard times."

Everything reaches equilibrium one way or another, so just ride out the "crazy leftist cry parade." They'll get theirs eventually. This opposite reaction just takes longer than a science experiment.

Yeah, while I know it’s hard, but if an older (independent) child finds out that mom’s whoring was the cause of the divorce, I view it as their moral duty to make her life miserable over that fact. The punishment has to come from somewhere, and society as a whole gives these women a free pass with dad being the whipping boy. Redpilled sons of such women need to take this at heart, even though familial bonds can create a type of Stockholm syndrome mentality amongst kids for their moms.

I was hard on my mom for my parents divorce but I was also hard on my dad, they both failed at the relationship, he shouldn't have fucked around as much as he did and been more mindful to everyone's needs, she left him for the first guy who promised to essentially take better care of her (her boss at the time) with no regards to anything else.

I honestly checked out of both relationships and became largely independent (even left home at 17, while I was still in highschool) and while I wound up improving my relationship later in life with both my parents, the amount of shit testing and deniability I saw from both parents was astounding and I was estranged from both during times and it's only when they stopped the shit testing and denying their faults when I finally took our relationships more serious. (Having supportive parents is better than not having supportive parents, so I'm glad I stuck up for myself and demanded a better deal than they were both willing to give).

If I was the kids in the above scenario, I'd let moms know I'm not very happy with her behavior and that she'd need to earn my respect again if she wants it. I'd tell her to ease up on pops and to not fault him for what she did. As for pops, I'd tell him to get over it, even at 15/16, I'm grown enough to make my own decisions and fight my own battles, I don't need my parents feuding and rather he butt the fuck out of mine and my mothers relationship (however fickle it would be). I'd tell him "if mom has any issues with what's happening, tell her to talk to me, not you."

This is essentially what i did with my parents in a round about way... similar but different situation (I think it's comparable).

Best thing to do is to ensure you don't have negative influences around you, so if any women, or even friends, coworkers, family, if any of them are causing drama or bad influence, ditch them (and tell them why), they aren't worth it if they don't give a fuck about how they are negatively affecting you.

And how did he repay my father? By consciously undermining his relationship.

Then, my Mom invented a story about how my dad cheated, spent 15 years with one, then another neglectful, abusive guy.

She finally married a good man. Gave her the world. Let my deadbeat, do nothing sister (not his kid) live with them despite her being 22 and NEVER holding a job. Let my Mom's deadbeat mother live out her final year there...despite having walked out on my mother and leaving her to foster homes...

And my Mom cheats on him, with her sister's boyfriend, for MONTHS (she admitted it) before leaving him.

But I am the bad guy for not wanting a person like my mother in my life.

It's incredible how obvious this should be to rationale breathing humans. You REALIZE you're going to have a working relationship with your kids as they become adults. You realize that kids find out about most of their parents bullshit. And guess what? They're not going to just let it slide that you lied to them. They're going to put distance (whether that be actual distance, or emotional space) between you. It's not worth it.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

That's something I never articulated, but have always felt was true. Do not lie to your children. (For the wannabe autists out there: Telling them Santa Claus is real is not a lie, and if you don't understand what I mean, it's one of those "If you have to ask..." situations.) There might be things, personal things I'll choose not to share with my son, but I'll simply tell him that some topics that are too personal will not receive an answer (just like the standard response to "Does this make me look fat?" -> "I don't answer questions like that").

I just can't imagine lying to him. He needs to understand the way the world really is if he is to become the fully realised person that it is my duty - and my joy - to help him become. Even if it happens to be a harsh lesson. If I omit those, his view of the world will be built on a fragile foundation.

At one point, you got to thrust them into the adult world. I think around 15 or 16 is a good time

15 upvotesthrowaway-aa22 years ago

What? No no no let's correct some things really quickly.

  • First off. 15 years is a long fucking time. In that amount of space someone can become incredibly intelligent. And I already know your rebuttal to this (oh but they were a baby most of that time), so let's immediately go to the next point:
  • Not ALL teens are dipshits and lack understanding. Maybe YOU were at 15, maybe your own children, or others that you know, but you absolutely cannot speak for everyone. I can provide concrete examples of people at that age who had excellent parents (which is a rarity) This gets us into the next point:
  • Somewhere along the way, parents lost their way. The ONLY baseline goal you have as a parent, is to provide shelter, food, and prepare them for adulthood. If your child is 15 and you feel the need to save them from "adult shit" you have utterly and thoroughly missed the point of parenting. Just for reference, 18 years old is when you're a legal adult. No one would argue that you can't share something with an 18 year old. If you really think that 3 years should make a difference, all you're admitting is that teenagers in this day and age grow up due to the external circumstance of more responsibility given their age (given the need to work, go to college, pay bills, etc), and weren't instilled these things by their parents (again a failure of the actual role). And you'll still find even in this type of situation, a lot of kids rise above this (I'm a model example).
  • At the end of the day, it's the same shit you see on Dog Whisperer. A bad dog is a sign of a bad owner. Calling a teen a "dipshit" is missing the point ENTIRELY. He is a "dipshit" and "not ready to understand adult shit" because of your (and others) EXACT mentality of wanting to shield them from the world, 3 short fucking years before they are legally deigned an adult. I don't understand how people don't get such a simple concept. People don't magically become adults, and young adults don't become great adults until they are expose to hardship and responsibility. Want to make someone grow up really quickly? Put a baby in their lap and see how they change in the span of a year. The process is NEVER to baby someone. That's not how ANYONE grows as an individual. You want someone to be great? Expose them to hardship and suffering. A parent gets to do that in a safe and controlled environment. But most parents don't take full advantage of this, which is completely and utterly asinine.
  • Let me ask you a further question. If you want to raise a son into the world, is the type of son where you can't tell him the bare truth at 15 years old a model RP son? When do you plan to teach him how to be a man? When he turns 16? 17? Some people hit the ground running at 18 years old. Do you really believe these same people were all dipshits at 15 years old? CMON man.

Crazy. The only reason this guy was able to do the smart thing despite the heaps and heaps of people telling him to feel ashamed is that he seems vaguely aspie himself from his comments.

On some level to deal properly with a sociopathic system (lawyers, family court, visitation agreements, no fault divorce, alimony, child support, women, etc) you have to be able to think sociopathically yourself. Scorched earth - burn it to the ground and rebuild.

Because if you don't play to win versus someone who is playing to win, you lose. What this guy did is smartly break his ex down mentally by forcing her to face consequences for her actions, and then hold out long enough until her will to screw him over broke down into general despondence and hopelessness.

Alienate, isolate, keep them hopeless, and then you come through and present them a way out. Like they are in the bottom of a well and you have the only rope and light.

This is how you have to deal with women who try to screw you over using weaponized sociopathic systems at their disposal. Often to do this you have to be somewhat aspie yourself, because you have to fully believe that you're important enough, that you are so in the right that it's OK to do whatever it takes. This is how women play the game - she was happy to kill him after she was cheating on him.

That jolted him into a stunted survival mode where he was willing to fight with fire. If she never did that, and instead had paid for great legal counsel on his dime, she'd likely have her payday, her kids, and would be banging her new dude in military husband's house.

The rest of the world is happy enough to have you be an indentured servant, just working away and sending money (through the court of course) to your wife and kids who enjoy their wife without you.

If you aren't willing to fight for your life and home one day and potentially lose despite doing everything right... don't fucking marry.

Nowadays simps raise their kids to be pussies and the typical "kid" would side with his mother regardless of their crimes. It's refreshing to see those smart kids have some values and cut her off.

Yeah that's the point.

It's not before going through some severe trial and tribulation that one can learn what a female is in actuality. So, at least the first mind-disintegration and mind-shattering hurt from their psychological/social dishonesty can't usually be avoided. It's to be lived through, and to learn from. (Don't think anyone can become red-pilled without personally going through the socio-feminine decepto-grinder, in other words).

This reminds me of that story in the 48 laws of power.

Hopefully someone knows which law im talking about.

Anyways in the story, all the jungle animals gather around to make amends because the water hole runs dry or some shit like that, so they assume the gods are mad at them.

The lion says hes sorry for tricking the small animals and eating them, and all the animals emphatically see from his POV and forgive him. This goes on and on with each animal asking for forgiveness and they all agree they all only did what was right to survive.

Then comes along the donkey. The donkey in the story admits to also slipping up, maybe eating more leaves than he should have, that one time. All the animals gather round and decide the donkey is at fault for his heinous crime, and sacrafice him.

The moral of the story for me is if people see you as a donkey you better never admit to any wrong doing.

Because the more and more i notice how true this story is.

From that scientist who wore that shirt of the scantly clad women, who asked forgiveness and was further chastised, to simpish begful men who are depised by fat walrus women.

Society hates betas and they will rip you apart for it if you ask for forgiveness. Most of you fake alphas do it here too. Like the good little sheep you were programmed to be.

But anyways my point is... maintaining frame is essential in life and a large part is not walking around asking for forgiveness, and the more you do that the more youll see how often theyll try and shame you and how little it will affect you.

Don't use the "denigration by proxy of collective being strangers" approach. TRP is nothing but strangers talking to strangers. Based on your comment, no one should ask for guidance or questions here, let alone place any value in the authority of some of the knowledge here. Asking advice on the internet is perfectly fine. You can always choose what you do with the advice. Let's put this another way: The OP of that post made a comment in this exact post. Maybe his advice will lead him to be patient and read some of the teachings of this sub?

2 upvotestallwheel2 years ago

You're missing the point. I am not talking about advice on the Internet in general.

I'm talking about this guy asking for advice about this particular matter. The fact that he asked in the first place is because he was unsure about whether he had done the right thing. In this case I think he should have been confident in his own decision. It's kind of like all those stupid "should I break up with my GF" questions on askTRP. No one knows better than you whether you should or not.

When he got the advice from strangers, it was just a bunch of manginas telling him he was a bad man. And then he actually listened to their advice somewhat and apologized to his ex wife.

Nah, he definitely shouldn't have made the thread.

2 upvotesthrowaway-aa22 years ago

Not missing your point. I think the "stranger angle" has never made sense. If you're questioning his asking of his specific question... Sure, but he's not RP so he doesn't know better. That's a completely different thing you're conflating.

He did what he did FIRST, then went seeking guidance. Had he not asked the question, he would have still been in the wrong.

She could write "I'm gonna kill you you son of a bitch" all day and my classic go to response would be "I'm sorry you feel that way." I know that's not the same context he apologized to her for but at the end of the day I'm just saying, I wouldn't feed into her bullshit. I'd give her the same fucking 2 word answer to everything she;d have to says to me. "I'm sorry" Drop the kids off and pick them up on time when I'm supposed to. There's really no need for him to be putting any energy into her. She's probably feeding off the drama.

That's horseshit.

I'm a product of divorce, my dad did stupidly lose half his assets (twice) and sure, for a while he lost his children, but so too did my mother, because I did not agree with the behavior I was seeing from her. In the end, I repaired both relationships because they met me on my terms and I would turn to my Dad more than I would my mom (My relationship with my mother is more superficial where I found it was easier to turn to my dad for advice).

At the end of the day if you lose your children, it's because you did not make a large enough impression on them. My sister went through divorce and is in the exact opposite situation you'd imagine (the father tried to manipulate the kids into not liking their mother even tho he was the one who was cheating and abusive to her). The kids saw through the bullshit, they still see him and enjoy spending time with him, but he's realized he's not going to be able to turn their kids on her....

At the end of the day, protect your assets, make sure your kids grow up able to think for themselves, far too many of us wind up raising sheep. that's the problem.

How can you possibly say this when we know that women are given default custody, that women have no consequences of parental alienation and that they engage in this behavior regularly? How can you make this broad statement when women move around, change addresses, and move far, far away?

If mom move 500 miles away is it still Dad's fault? Is it still Dad's fault when the mom has the children almost all the time and spends her advantage to poison their minds so much of the time?

Don't take my comment out of context. It wasn't meant to paint the entire canvass with the same brush stroke. I get there's a lot of variables, I felt that goes without saying, I'm just trying to say in a somewhat fair fight where you're not dealing with a sociopath, maybe instead you're dealing with simple bitterness (as an example, how my mom reacted to my parents divorce) than if you raise an independent child, it's likely that child will see through the bullshit.

You're right in that my suggestion would notwork on this x-wife had their kids been sheep, but the fact that this x-wife is beyond batshit fucking crazy and that their kids are siding heavily with their father is proof that there is merit into what I'm trying to stress.

And it's not like it's skewed by gender, he's raising a teen girl and a teen boy... and they both side with pops and aren't please with moms behavior.

He's also not doing anything to alienate them from her. Telling the truth about their mother isn't alienating those kids. Parents need to be held accountable and these kids deserve to see the bullshit this mother is causing.

So yeah, in short, you can't apply my statement to every single divorce case out there, which should just highlight the fact that you really need to do your best to not raise fucking sheep if you ever decide to raise kids. teach them how the real world works and learn them to navigate through shit piles.

There you are, fellows. Learn, don't whine.

  • Strength and doing the right thing gathers no sympathy. Exposing pain and weakness, on the other hand, does. A life is worth its capacity of EXPRESSING pain. When you need people's sympathy, EXPRESS pain;
  • Men aren't victims, and if they are they need to be hurt and with deep flesh wounds. "About a year ago my wife and I got divorced because of her infidelity. The divorce was just awful." doesn't come from a hurt man, so he won't ever be seen as a victim. If he's not a victim, no one will see things from his side. His pain is deserved;
  • Women are presumed victims, everyone looks at things by the victim's side. Their violence is justified because they "felt" threatened.

Think of a narrative like this:

About one year ago something happened to me, which led to my ex wife making death threats to me.
For the last months that we spent together, I knew that our marriage was on rocky grounds. My wife was constantly upset, we were fighting constantly, she was really frustrated. Every time we talked about it we agreed on finding a way out, for our family, and our children. In my mind, she was upset because our "children" were actually a 15yo girl and a 16yo boy, cutting their cords, full of their own ideas and desires and going away from their mother's wings.
I thought I understood her ailment, so I sucked it up and compromised. A lot of times. Many times she said things that brought me down to my knees, a lot of times I thought of her as an abuser that was undermining my self esteem. A lot of times I thought that things would be easier if I put some work on detaching and stop loving her. But I was doing all that to preserve our family, and a family in which a father doesn't love the mother isn't a family at all. So, I endured.
This all came to a bitter end for me when I found out about her infidelity about one year ago. At first I tried to lie to myself, but then every time she said something to put me down I'd go down sobbing. I trusted her to give me support if I ever became that vulnerable. Funny thing is, my impulse was talking to my wife about what was happening! But it wouldn't work.
On the days following me finding out I couldn't work. I tried, but I wouldn't focus. HR warned me about my loss of productivity, so I told them what was happening. It was only then that someone warned me I was in a dysfunctional relationship, which aided me in making a decision. I asked for some time off, and would file for a divorce, so I could recover and focus on my children.
The process was a horror show. The legal system has no empathy for cheated on people. Every time I commented on how my now ex wife acted towards me, someone would say "even if that is true, proving it is too hard, so we can't use it in court". In the end, thank god, when it came to our sons, it was all sorted out. They would still have two parents after all, none would be alienated by the law, which was the best I could expect from it all. When it came to her and myself, things were different. I was trying really hard to forgive and not to resent her, I had been going to therapy to try to sort myself out, I managed to convince her to get into couple's counseling to help us finding how to best handle things with our sons, despite her persistent protests of "we're divorced, why would we do couple's anything? Would you please let me live my life now?"
But as I said, our "children" weren't children, they're teenagers, intelligent, observant, and they couldn't help but notice whenever I sobbed, that I gained a lot of weight and was binge eating sometimes, so at some point the my asked me what happened. I thought of lying to her, but she's older and wiser than she had to be to be fooled with some excuse and lie I'd fail to sustain. And I told her, that her mother and I had divorced due to her infidelity.
Now, they're teenagers, with their own opinions, and own attitudes, and they're having a hard time forgiving her. It WILL end. But now she somehow turned this all on me and is threatening to kill me. I fear that she has the intent and the resources to do it, but I'm afraid to go to the police and be laugh at, because I'm a man,and they never spared any comment, "you're just feeling emasculated because she cheated, grow some balls".
How can I proceed?

I had something similar happen to me. "Mom" of our then 2 yr old boy took off and then came back into our lives when he was 4 by way of notification of an expedited hearing the following week.

The day of the hearing, i was pretty confident because she left for her own stupiid, selfish reasons. I was never abusive, i provided for her, and paid for things i should not have, and fucked her silly nearly every day. I also tolerated her nonsensical BS view of life all the while "leading by example" and tactfully conveying to her more or less "no" and "why" when she wanted me to participate with or support her through one of her many foolish notions which were 9 times out of 10 was engineered by her to get out of doing her part (aside from sex) around the house.

While i had plenty of evidence to support her abandoning and otherwise, poor parenting what little she WAS around, she had lie after lie to tell the judge. The thought of any judge siding with her was not only laughable, but ridiculous. To the point now...the results of the expedited hearing:

She was not even so much as required to have "supervised" visitation. She was granted immediate summer visitation the following day with our son, out of state, and he did not even know who she was. I was called a "child abuser" by the judge for telling our son "i dont know where your mommy is but i know she loves you"

She was even given all holidays for 2 yrs to "make up for lost time" since i, apparently, "kept her away." I only retained "temporary custody" because of "court tradition" which is "temporary custody to the parent who the child has been living with."

Theres plenty i'm leaving out which supports my side of things but you get it. Man, just typing all this pisses me off more. The system is not just "broken" it can be sick and twisted beyond belief.

4 upvotesEntropy-72 years ago

I can't link to the archive posts (Great Firewall of China) so a lot of context is missing.

In general, you aren't supposed to try to alienate the children and the other parent and if it it is proved that you did there could be a change of custody (if you have it) or a reduction of visitation (if you are the non-custodial parent). However, it is really hard to prove.

The other point taken is that your relationship with your (ex)spouse is considered completely separate from the respective relationships with the children. This principle in practice tends to work in favour of the mother who is an X, Y and Z (and twice on Sundays) but the mantra still remains "she is a good mother!" Unfortunately, guys never seem to get the benefit of the doubt in these situations.

It gets me that the "children" are close to being young adults, and this is where the context comes in. If they come to the father with an honest but adult question about why the divorce (that he filed for?) then he can refuse to answer - and maybe risk alienating the kids himself - or lie (always the policy of choice if it benefits the woman I suppose) or tell them in the truth in an even handed way.

There is one thing that nobody has focused on so far. The kids need to have appropriate protections in place when dealing with either parent if that parent is being abusive and manipulative. I spent the last 24 years showing my kids how to protect themselves from their mother's needy "take care of me" attitude. Couch this in terms of a divorce where my 9 year old daughter was manipulated into taking care of her siblings and her mother after her mother and I divorced. The ex rode the carousel high wide and with abandon for a year then settled down with hubby #2 followed a few years later with #3 and now with #4. The kids are adults now and have a better idea how to fend off the manipulation.

I know a woman who raised her children admirably well by herself after her husband cheated on her. She also told her children soon what really happened.

Whoever is trying to protect 15 year olds from the cold reality of the world is a retard and should be forbidden to have children. Lucky for those kids they got an honest and direct dad. If they were raised by the people of those subreddits they probably couldn't even wipe their own butt at 18.

You're right, OP in that thread is just getting savaged, with his actual reasonable questions and comments. And crazily downvoted. It's not some giant long story either, basically a short paragraph that he wrote.

Putting aside the commenters who are trolls, russians and neckbeards, you are left with women comments. And from a red pill perspective, this is a beta male standing up and fighting, and betas don't do that. She probably had a good reason to cheat, we just don't know it yet, but it most likely revolves around him not being man enough. Now this beta has ruined the family because he made the mother look bad, how dare him!

Stop and listen to the women around you when they think you aren't paying attention (which sadly is far easier than it should be). You will hear the same things being said right out in real life, just slightly toned down. There is great influence out there to be the good beta draft horse, the question is what kind of man do you want to be? And it can be done without even raising your voice or making threats.

If you've ever been divorced with children involved, there is most likely a part of your divorce or separation agreement that deals with talking shit about each other. Mine goes like this:

All parties are restrained against the use of profanity or making any  derogatory comments about or toward the other party or allowing anyone  else to do so in front of the child in any manner whereby the child might  learn of the same. 

So yeah, the situation is fucked up, but your lawyer would probably advise you to not tell your kids that your ex was a whore. And of course the whore should be prosecuted for the death threats.

There's nothing stopping the dad from letting the kids read the public records from the divorce. They're old enough to go get copies themselves, even.

You need to separate her actions against you, with her rights and duties as a parent to her children.

-8 upvotesmerchcon2 years ago

good cunts without kids downvoting me. Maybe I should lift more?

Controversial advice (on this sub anyway) - you shouldn't be shit talking about the other parent to the kids.

Even when you are together, you should still see your relationship to your partner as a little separate to the relationship with your kids (this is actually great advice as it means the kids understand mummy and daddys relationship is important and you can focus on each others needs as well as your kids needs).

No matter what one person does, the other person is still the kids parent. This isn't about being pussy whipped or letting women walk all over you, it's about what's best for the kids and what's best for the kids is usually a strong parenting unit even if that unit is separated.

The guy is probably some bitch with a lot of bitterness that he doesn't know how to handle so he thought he'd use the kids as a weapon to get some revenge. My partners ex does this a lot, uses the daughter as a weapon, he's such a pussy of a man he just can't deal with the fact she left him.

Don't support this dick head - his ex wife might be a piece of shit but she still has duties as a mother and he's making that harder for her which ultimately fucks the kids.

-7 upvotesMetalstepTNG2 years ago

Don't worry you're not the only one. I'm pro Red Pill all the way but what the father did was unnecessary.

Fact of the matter is that his wife cheated on him, he can't deal with it, and despite getting a divorce he still feels vulnerable and is using the kids as a means to get revenge at his wife when he could have just taken the high road and cut the bitch out of his life without any more drama. This man is a text book beta.

I understand a lot of guys have disdain for this woman because she shouldn't be upset at her husband when she f*cked him over like that too, it's irrational and unstable, I get that. But both of these people are wrong at the end of the day and are just hurting their kids.

Infidelity definitely hurt our kids. In fact, the reason I found out was because it did.

I was on a business trip for a weekend and my wife was in charge of the household for those two days. My kids had this event at their school (I think it was a game or a competition) around 8 PM or so. Anyways, their mother said she would pick them up. The event ended around 10 PM. She arrived past midnight.

Fortunately, there were custodians in the building but my kids waited in a nearly abandoned building for two hours in the dead of night. They told me immediately once I came back. My wife told me she had some "work" to attend to. Bullshit.

With a little bit of digging, I found her Tinder profile. She was having sex with a random guy instead of picking up her own kids.

She neglected her kids - that's wrong. In no way does that relate to the bigger picture that we've been discussing here - Your mind is so closed off there's no point in even talking to you.

If current parenting situation is working, why do anything that could change that? What if your kids are so disgusted by your revelation that they leave their mums house and want to come to you but you can't handle them 100%? What if you can't drive them 40 mins to school each morning and evening? Do you not see how life could quickly get worse once you break a parenting situation that's working? IF the parenting arrangements aren't working well then that's another story but the logistics of shared (separated) parenting can be a nightmare under the best of circumstances. I'm watching my step daughter deal with her dad who randomly started to bad mouth her mother (my partner); it affects the girl massively, everything was going ok before he started to get shitty due to the child support amount dropping (she pays him child support) and now he's running his mouth off and the girl doesn't wanna go there so much, I'm now stuck with a pretty large school run which I can't change until next year and the daughter is losing the positive influence that was her dad just because he's a little bitch over the wife leaving him. Maybe he shouldn't have been a cunt then she would have never left?

The joint parenting has worked well for a couple of years but recently he became single again and the shit talk has started, how does the daughter knowing the "truth" make her life better. Maybe when she's not dependent on her parents, then she can know whatever she wants?

You didn't come here to listen to peoples real experiences in these exact situations, you came here to have your feelings validated.

Women that cheat are monsters, I don't doubt it, sometimes those monsters are very good for the kids though and when you're doing 50/50 parenting arrangements, your sudden need to tell the truth can fuck lives up very quickly.

Why would that happen? The Dads marriage is not the kids business and they should have been taught that from an early age.

-3 upvotesmerchcon2 years ago
I disagree 

Go do some research on successful parenting then actually gain some experience being a parent - until you've done those two things, I'm not sure that your opinion matters. (Please don't take that as offensively as that sounds.)

I've seen this situation play out many times and every time someone "is just telling the truth", the kids end up suffering one way or another but when everyone is focussed on their own lives and being a good parent, the kids tend to do really well.

if it was a man beating his wife. Would you support his wife telling her kids? 

I don't know because I've never been in that situation so I can only guess. I would say maybe. If the father is violent then he should have no contact with the kids anyway and at that point, it wouldn't really matter if they know and maybe I would let them know UNLESS he was taking an active parenting role and telling the kids would harm that.

The focus is on the outcome for the kids and nothing more. The fact you asked the question about the wife being beaten suggests that you're still looking at this from a "winning" or ego perspective. If the 'crime' is bad enough, there will be no joint parenting to worry about, if joint parenting is working well, then there's no need to mess that up for the kids.

Simply "telling the truth" is usually a cute way of saying "I want to hurt the other person".

5 upvotesreckful9942 years ago

No. Quite frankly I would disregard merchcon's way of framing the issue as it is incorrect.

Maturity and wisdom are the byproduct of life experience plus self reflection and analysis of your surroundings. When one has seen the same behaviors and cycles over and over again, it enables one who makes an effort to see patterns and draw conclusions about life. When one experiences intense suffering as a result of a life decision or choice, for some it leads to learning. It should be noted not all people mature with age.

At 17, a large part of your information comes from second hand knowledge (i.e. your parents and school) as opposed to personal knowledge (rooted in experience). Your values and your identity are shaped by this second hand knowledge. For many, this is why their views change in early adulthood (21-27) - a greater part of your knowledge is rooted in personal experience as opposed to second hand knowledge.

However, I certainly wouldn't agree with the statement "you've seen nothing and done nothing". Even though a lot of what you know is second hand knowledge, you certainly have enough experience with interpersonal relationships to understand marital infidelity. Hell you've probably seen cheating in your own high school.

Teenagers are infantilized far too much these days.

18 upvotesreckful9942 years ago

17 is old enough to process a parent's infidelity being the source of a divorce.

The divorce is inevitably the cause of great pain and suffering- by 17, they deserve to know "why" the cause of such suffering if there is a clear cut reason like infidelity.

Infidelity is not ambiguous nor is it nuanced. It does not require "wisdom" to deal with.

Calm down Mr. Internet tough guy- this isn't about "me" or "you".

Should separate parents complain about how housework was allocated or their boring sex life to their kids? Definitely not. But marital infidelity is not nearly so nuanced and is an issue that I do not see as having "two sides". I don't buy the argument that one spouse "made" another cheat through some action or lack thereof.

Why does a 17 year old deserve to know about it? Because it's not simply a betrayal of the spouse that was cheated on, but of the family itself.
