Re: Did I make a mistake

confused dad - I'm going to be honest, you sound similar to my ex. Rather than communicating and working on our issues he began an emotional affair (whether if ever became physical I'm not sure, I know he was trying to meet up with her because I heard him on the phone) - he had the "young man's disease" was trying to "safe" her - she was a single mom with a child who had cancer. She eventually dumped my ex for a dr - and ex expected me to sympathize

my is that
-you get counseling for yourself (my ex still has the same issues he had 16+ yrs ago/when we were married-there are still times he expects me to "fix" things for him )
-you build relationships with both kids (the fact is what you do now will affect them for the rest of their lives ... children often blame themselves for their parents breaking up)
