I suffer from limphadema depression anxiety bowl toxicity arthritis so I don't leave the house much (my husband left me with my youngest sons girlfriend who also have a child together) The day I received the check was the day he told me about the affair. He tried to make the bank split the check in half into each of our accounts. They wouldn't so he got mad then he told me about the affair and I told him to leave. I changed the locks. Then he started herasing me and threatening me and my children saying he's intitaled to half. I gave him fifteen thousand just to stop him upsetting everyone.
