My wife has falsely accused me and a family member of molesting our children. The allegations have continued on an on-again, off-again basis for at least five years. Earlier this year I was investigated and the case was dismissed by our local child services agency. My wife has never “allowed” me to bathe my children, change their clothes or diapers, tuck them in, etc. and I have never spent more than three hours alone with both or either of them. She maintains that if I take my children anywhere without her “permission,” she will call the police.
Recently, the allegations came to a head and I decided that I have had enough of the restrictions with my own children, and I have left my home. My wife refuses to allow me to spend time with my children, and has threatened to pursue her allegations in court.
We have very little money and a legal fight will cause us to lose our home and bankrupt me. My wife refuses counseling.
I believe my wife to be mentally ill and I have “held on” the best I could the last few years, but I have just had enough of it and now am not sure what to do.
