Q&A: Spouse Debates Court As He Fights To See His Daughter After Girlfriend Moves Into Hotel With New Boyfriend

"My ex-girlfriend moved out of our apartment into a hotel room after she received her money from taxes. She said that she wasn't happy and felt we needed to separate. Against my objections, she packed her and our daughter's clothes and left. Since her departure, there has been constant bickering over when I can spend quality time with my child. I have kept my composure and tried my best to keep tensions calm, however, a mutual friend of ours recently told me that she has a new boyfriend that she has been spending quality time with. I brought the topic up to her, and she started calling me jealous and so on. My only point is that she has a man in a hotel room staying with my child. I feel as a father, I have a right to question these actions. I responded by assuring her that I was not concerned with whom she wished to be with, but I would like to care for my child when he is around until I knew him better and so forth. I also brought up the fact that for her to be so comfortable with the new fellow, she must have known him for a longer period of time than said. Which in my mind would explain her recent departure. She became extremely upset and began whopping and hollering about me wasting her life and wanting to control her. Since the incident, I have only spoken to my daughter over the phone and have yet to see her. I don't want to cause problems for our family. What can I do without involving the courts?" -Xavier.

Sibling Relationship Ruined After Brother Throws Miscarriage in Sister's Face Behind New Girlfriend

"My brother's new girlfriend is highly unaccepted by my family for multiple reasons. One is that he ruined his childhood friendship and highly respectable relationship to be with this person. The female has a five-year-old daughter and is very financially unstable. I watch as my brother who is not the child's father wakes up to get the baby dressed, fully bathed, and fed while her mother sleeps past noon. On multiple occasions, the child is absent from school and my brother will miss work to stay home and accompany the two of them. What baffled me is not only does he lay out the child's clothes but her mother's as well. Along with her toothbrush and etcetera. For the entirety of their relationship, they have been living pillar to post, and my brother has even started lying and hustling money from family members who are growing tired. His girlfriend constantly spends money she receives on marijuana, which she freely uses in front of the child before anything else. I expressed how this was not his job and that he was bringing himself down for a woman trying to take care of them while she had no initiative to care for herself or her child. In response, my brother reiterated the fact that I could not have kids and went so far as to call me jealous and say that it was the reason I miscarried. I am extremely hurt however my family is saying I should just calm down. Am I wrong for saying that my hands are washed with him? " -Candace.
