Don’t Let a Spouse Control You

When you get married, the last thing that you can expect from your partner is that they will one day disappear with most of your money, your kids and even your dog. Divorce is certainly on the mind of some, it’s too common for it to not to be, but to have your spouse actually kidnap the children is something else entirely. It happened to me, though. We had moved to Singapore recently to give our children a non-American upbringing just so they would be able to see a larger world. Soon, I hired a private detective in singapore because of some suspicions I had from my wife. She had been going out with a business partner often, something that she had never really done back home, and her behavior had changed entirely. It turned out that she was seeing someone else on the side. I was heart broken. When I confronted her about it, she flew into a rage accusing me of stalking her – which, in a way, I had done.

It didn’t matter. She was the one in the wrong and hadn’t the courage to tell me that she was unhappy. Instead, she disappeared the next day after pulling out as much money from the bank that she could. When the kids were dropped off from school, she took them. She didn’t come back home. I had to have the private detective continue following her, to track her down, hunt her, do whatever it would take to find my kids again. Weeks passed before he finally found a lead on her – she had made it as difficult as possible by using nothing but cash. We were able to pass the details on to the cops who took matters into their own hands, returning my children and ensuring she would never do anything like that again.
