"WHAT ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN? Who is meeting THEIR needs?"
Yeah, I feel pretty bad for the kids (and admittedly should have said so sooner). W is acting really selfishly in general, from what I can tell.
And I agree with SNeacail, it wouldn't be a bad idea to at least have a consultation with an attorney, and find out what's at stake here. #=!!, I think I'd also consider talking to W's boyfriend and at least letting him know how bad things have gotten. See what he says ...
