On one hand, if I hadn't gone to the courthouse, I wouldn't know any of this.
And if it was the woman who was getting support, no one would question it.
But on the other, maybe I'm old fashioned and I don't want to waste my time with a many who isn't a traditional earner. I like Mike It sounds like neither of you has been completely honest with the other - you have both misrepresented yourselves, so I can't see this relationship going anywhere good from here.
I have a feeling that Mike may want to get married and that is exciting.From what Mike has told me, his ex just up and left him and he has to care for the kids.As any woman would be, I am curious about the ex and I want to know more about what happened in the marriage but I don't want to put Mike on the spot.Oct 2014 I have been dating ''Mike'' for a few months.I'm a single parent and I live in an apartment and run a business owned by my ex.
Mike thinks that I own the business and although I don't know how much money Mike has, he owns a glamorous home and he tells me that he is an entepenuer and he lives off his investments, so I don't want him to think I want to be with him for his lifestyle and fortune.
I haven't been with anyone serious in a while, and being with Mike is exciting.
After I talked with some friends, I went to the courthouse and reviewed Mike's public divorce file.
I just want to know if his ex will be knocking on the door for support and money and taking away from the life Mike and I will have. While I won't go into details, what I read in the file was not the Mike I know and, his wife gave him the house, the country club membership and she pays him child support. She has a successful business, is well educated and she's younger than me.
I'm also not comfortable thinking about a future with Mike.
We have a great time together, but knowing that he has the kind of life he has thanks to his ex, it seems like a bleak future for me as the child support will eventually go away. Should I end it with Mike because he is not who he really claims he is?
