My boyfriend and I have dated for three years and I gave him a key to my apartment. Now that he can come in, eat, sleep and go as he pleases, things have changed. He doesn’t come over as often and when he does, it’s late at night. I’ve asked him for a key to his place but he said no without an explanation. I told him I wanted my key back and he said if I take it from him or change the locks, the relationship is over. Was it a mistake to give him a key in the first place?
If his name isn’t on the lease then he shouldn’t have a key. You made yourself vulnerable because he knows you won’t entertain anyone else since he can show up at any time. He’s not going to give you a key because he’s not as committed as you are. You should take your key and if that’s the only thing that can end the relationship, then you don’t need him. If he refuses, then change your locks, make him knock on the door for a visit and keep it moving.
When my husband and I were together he took excellent care of our kids. Now that we’re divorced he has amnesia and forgot he has obligations of child support and health care. Don’t get me wrong, I still care for him but now I have to go through so much stress to get him to help me. I have legal documents outlining his responsibilities. How long do I wait before taking him through the court system?
Daycare bills, tight clothes and hungry stomachs don’t have time to wait for daddy to grow up. At this rate, your kids will be senior citizens collecting a pension before your ex-husband steps up to the plate. The court order that he violated gives you front row seating with a judge. If he has no sympathy or concern for his children’s welfare, then you need to handle your business and take him to court at lightning speed.
