I’m so sorry OP. This seems like a very good time to consult an attorney to see if the agreement can be modified. Even if it doesn’t work out, your kids need you more than ever to have as a stable and grounded influence. I hope it works out for you. I know several men who have primary or sole custody so it absolutely can be done, depending upon the state.

Yes, thankfully the courts are now acting in the interest of the child(ren) and it’s not as unheard of as it was a generation ago. My buddy from high school has primary on his 3 in NC, I know a friend of an old BF who has sole on his son in MN (mom’s drug usage was a factor) and I know of another guy in IL who essentially paid off his wife an extra 5 years of alimony to get primary of his kids with limited visitation for the mom. In all three cases the kids were much better off with their dads. When it started to affect one son’s behavior in school in the case of my buddy in NC, he knew he had to act to get the previous 50/50 arrangement modified - the mom was prioritizing her skeezy new BF over her kids. Court found in his favor easily. Everybody’s so much better now and he’s remarried to a great gal who didn’t have kids but loves his 3 sons like her own.

I’m more concerned how you decided to marry someone like this

She wasn’t like this when we got married. It’s one of numerous reasons for the “ex” in front of “wife” Having said that, I have two beautiful children so I’m less concerned about my poor choice in the woman I used to be married to, than I am about that woman distorting my Children’s minds..s

When I asked her if she was serious (3x) she just got mad and told me to do some actual research and look it up

I have a step sister in law who removed her children from school to teach them herself because she believes schools breed sheep. She’s QANON. She thinks Joe Biden is actually a robot wearing his skin. She is racist and homophobic. She posts all this stuff publicly on IG. Her first baby daddy can’t get full custody. So while i hope this works for you, but I’ve lost faith in the system protecting children.

Is this normal? I thought ex spouses only communicated when they wanted more money, or something related to the kids.

I went through something similar and I acted on it. I have full custody of my daughter and she’s with me every day. Little communication with my ex. Once this began our lives (mine and my daughter) are now always continuously peaceful.

Wait Eisenhower did what?!?

It’s part of this AHS season.

Umm, yeah I'd think so... Though my question is how did YOU end up married to such a nutjob in the first place?

Maybe you should text her saying you were interested in what she said and ask her to send you a link to an explainer or something, so you’d have some evidence for the judge?

Are you certain she’s not on drugs? Like prescribed or otherwise? I would try to increase your time to the max possible; as there’s no time to delay. considering a woman just lost custody for refusing to vaccinate in Chicago I would consider going for custody. She’s not well.
