The Aftermath of Divorce

The days following Zach’s departure were the hardest in Anna’s life. ButterFly cried for her dad to the point that she got sick. He neither called, texted or emailed his wife or daughter. Yet, everything began unraveling. All Zach’s plans were in the open.

Zach had been planning to leave his wife a couple of months’ earlier. His parents had convinced him that his wife and child were nothing but expenses and were weights on his shoulder. He wasn’t progressing in life because of them. Zach had also began an affair a while back with an anonymous girl.

The affair was the least of Anna’s worries. What killed her was that she had made vows of eternity with this man, had been through moments of extreme happiness as well as moments of heart wrenching sadness. Anna was broken. In more ways than one. This man was the father of her babies. She loved him deeply. They had shared so much. How could all of this be true? And it was.

And the humiliation did not stop there. Zach had been recording conversations and arguments between Anna and himself over the past couple of months. Anna had no knowledge about this. She came to know of this when she threatened Zach to go to court for sole custody and child support. How much further could he break her spirit? Were discussions between husband and wife just that – between husband and wife? And it did not end there. Zach had played those recordings to his friends and family to try and discredit Anna, as well as remove ButterFly from her care permanently. Who was Anna really married to?

Things got uglier and uglier. Zach’s parents demanded wedding gifts to Anna back – claiming that it was family tradition to only LOAN the daughter in law heirlooms like jewellery. At divorce, these gifts were to be returned as the belonged to the husband and not to her. Anna point blank refused and an argument ensued between hers and Zach’s parents, that got really ugly.

Anna constantly tried to make things work with Zach, by begging him. She loved him a lot. She would have done anything to not let her family break. If anything, Anna wanted for her baby more than Anna herself had. Anna had her parents together and that’s what she wanted ButterFly to have. This wasn’t to be though. Zach’s arrogance was above it all. And he wanted Anna to bow down to his parents and seek their forgiveness.

Anna was willing to do it all just for her baby. Even though her parents were against it all. They knew what their daughter was up against. This man had left their daughter destitute and sky high bills, plus a mouth to feed. Zach point blank refused to shoulder any of the expenses unless Anna and ButterFly were living in his home. He constantly threated Anna with taking her to court and fighting for their baby – even though he had no leg to stand on.

The fights did not stop. However, Anna reached the breaking point one afternoon after Zach and his parents pulled a major stunt…
