Broke up with me after a breakdown?
My ex partner and i were together for 2 years. It was a rocky relationship as we were both recently separated, however, we fell in love and were absolutely soul mates with our vision being together for the rest of our lives.
unfortunately my ex wife (who never wanted him), didn't want anyone else to have him so threatened to take the children back to their country of origin if he didn't spent all of his spare time with them. She isn't back with him, and he cannot stand her, but he literally overnight cut the relationship off with me.
I was totally devastated, and every day he text me, we even saw each other a few times and I know he is still in love with me. He said he wants to be with me but cant.
I totally understand that he cannot be with me and that his children will come first, but i've now cut all contact with him as its just too painful. The trouble I have is that the grief of losing him is still as raw today as it was 3 months ago. I have kids and focus on them, I have friends and a lovely job and throw myself into other activities, but the truth of it is, I've lost my soul mate.
Im absolutely devastated. Unfortunately whilst he is a father and a very good one he doesn't have a leg to stand on as they were not married.
Should I remain in contact or cut him off. My ideal would be for him to come back to me, but my grief is affecting my children and I've managed to cut him off. I miss him terribly. I don't play games, and I think he has had a breakdown.
