I've finally decided to publicize a small portion of my wife's egotistical, contemptuous writings to the readers of this site. The first is a handwritten letter. It dates back more than a few years, but my wife has not fundamentally changed, nor has she ever apologized or displayed the slightest semblance of remorse for a single word she had written.
My purpose is not to smear her name (which isn't even in the letter, nor will I release it without further good reason and the go-ahead from my lawyer), but to demonstrate what kind of person has been withholding my older daughter from me and ruthlessly using her as a pitiful weapon against me since October 2002. If by any chance my wife or her friends find this online, I urge them to ask my wife to get professional counseling - not just go once and call it a day, but to work through her problems, and to invite her (my) daughter to do the same with her father (myself).
Any kind of "healthy" relationship and any semblance of trust between myself and my wife is now long gone, but the kids still remain; and I refuse simply to wait around for the family court to make some royal pronouncement that is supposedly "for the welfare" of the kids, when in fact their real psychological and parental needs are hardly touched upon.
