My Mother

My parents got divorced when I was in third grade. Not long after, my mother started dating. She dated this guy, Marty, who I didn't like. He wasn't nice and I got a bad vibe from him. One day, I was at my mom's house and I told her that I couldn't breathe, so he took his hand, put it over my face, and pushed back my head. It hurt and my mom didn't do anything about it. I was talking to my dad today and he told me that while my mom was dating Marty, his wife would call my dad to tell him how abusive Marty was. Once my mom found out, she broke up with him. I'm angry that she would put me and my sister into that kind of situation.

After she broke up with Marty, she found another guy named Jim. He was nice at first, but that all changed. One night, we went to Dave & Buster's to play games and eat dinner. Little did I know, he drove drunk that night. My dad confronted my mom about it and she said he was only "having fun". While my mom and him were dating, she took me to a party that he had at his house. I knew no one there. My mom got really drunk and ended up throwing up in the bathroom. I fell asleep on the couch and woke up in his bed with my mom.

Is there any way you & your sister could go live with your dad? Your moms choices seem to be not so good right now. I think you should talk about it with your dad. I care.

Your mother have bad choices in men. im also concerned about how she drinks and i hope she doesnt do it very often.<br />
have you considered going away for college (living on campus). have you thought about living with your dad when you get of age, or living with another relative when you turn 18 years old.
