After all, she left him again, they divorced 3 yrs. before he met me. I had never met that ex. but he take all bitter on me. Worst yet, he is listen to his sister who try to break my marriage. His older sister take advantage on him in so many ways, now she want to come between us because my husband never had a child. she expect if any thing happen to him, she night get it. she has child, and grand child. PLEASE ask God to open my husband’s eyes. and see through his greedy sister. He paid off her house, but still not enough yet. she drag him to shopping and made my husband paid . More than $200. and he did. His sister use him, but he does not care, he crazy for her and I am NO BODY to him. it is too obvious not to see that her and the rest of family is his priority. My husband told me that he hates me, and threaten to divorce me all the time. His sister should be out of the picture. I never understand, why he loves her too much?
