Hello, my name is Marcus Christian. I’m a 32 y/o single father I’ve got 1 biological son who is 3 turning 4 on Sunday he is pretty stoked!! As well as my wife (getting an unwanted/unexplained divorce) soon to be ex-wife had a daughter from a previous relationship. I’ve been there and taken care of her since she was 2.5 y/o now 9 turning 10 3/12/22 and still continue to be there! I’m going to start at the beginning and try to keep it short but it’s baffling. I grew up in Oklahoma started going down the wrong path that I knew had 2 endings I was guaranteed to meet at least one. So, I up and moved to Colorado with a friend who moved there 4 years prior. Late in 2014 I meet and start dating my ex soon I move in with her. My money became her money at that point. The reason is because growing up in the state of Oklahoma with 2 grandparents with fast declining health and no real means of supporting you, you learn to deal with the struggle. So my credit was okay and getting better. On 8/19/17 we got married (the best day of my life) and on 8/27/17 (the worst day of both our lives) I had a motorcycle accident that honestly (based on history and limits) I shouldn’t even be alive!!! By a miracle and 7 full blood transfusion’s later I survived with severe brain bleeding, 3 facial fractures, broken left clavicle, 8 broken left ribs, a collapsed left lung, liver kidney & spleen all bleeding internally, a shattered left pelvis, and and fractured left femur as well as left nerve damage (that was the most excruciating pain out of all of that). And the comeback wasn’t going to be easy.. I was told minimum of 6 months to heal enough to go back to work but with bills piling up and insurance money running out quickly (10k to 12k) so on 11/1/17 I went back to work because I knew my family wasn’t going to make it. 2/20/18 we welcomed our beautiful baby boy into the world (my new best day ever) I did absolutely everything I could do to help I would wake up I would change him you name it I did it. Somewhere between then and September 2018 she kicked me out of the bed and bedroom down to the unfinished basement where I would reside until 10/18/20 when she decided she wanted me out of the house all together but to still work on us.?.?. Confused I did as wished, I moved in with some friends in an unfinished basement paying $873 a month just for rent/basics and internet. I thought we were doing good and working on our marriage but on 7/13/21 after I return from taking our kids on vacation to see the only family I have left (she doesn’t care to see really) she tells me she wants a divorce. I was confused heart broken sad I became depressed I quite taking car of myself which caused me to get Covid I was sick for 3 to 4 weeks before I was finally symptom free, I lost my job due, and without a job you get behind on bills turning my credit the wrong direction and then finally all the way bad enough I can’t even get approved for a sheet of 1 ply toilet paper lol. I did all of this and continue to do so having my kids 50/50 and I’m not bashing her but really 60/50 she works nights (hard to work nights) she gets off goes to bed As the kids are with me. I wake them up and get them ready for school as well as take them to school, most days I pick up our son because she doesn’t usually wake up until 1-2 getting him at 2-3 and then our daughter from school. All at the same time I shovel her driveway (not for her) of snow because I don’t want my kids to slip and fall on it, and she tells me I’m a poor excuse of a man. Im just asking for a hand up not a hand out!!
