A while back I posted a thread about my daughter and I and concerns I had when it came to us sharing a bath together, most people posted highly intelligent replies, some not so much, but still I appreciated the response. Now I am posting a thread and the situation is again based around my daughter. I love my little girl very much, her mother and I seperated because of her severe emotional issues, at the time it seemed like the right thing to do. No matter what I did for the woman I was always bitched at or fought with over the slightest detail. Her spending habits drove my credit rating and my finances into the ground, basically I was being abused. I know that it seems to be overly sensitive but I left because I couldn't stand the constant emotional abuse, for a man to make such a decision might seem weak but it was coming very close to the point where drastic measures might have been taken. 10 months have passed since my daughter was born and she amazes me every day, I never thought I could have as much love for someone as I do for her. Her mother and I have now attempted to persue a fresh start on our relationship not only for our daughter but because it feels like maybe we jumped the gun. She is a great mother and generally a caring spouse, however I worry. Since we split before I had quite a few random sexual partners, all safe and all quite enjoyable, My gf I believe had at least one partner but it seems to have been more of a one night stand. this does not worry me nor am I intimidated at all. In fact the first time we had sex she made it quite clear that she "missed the big stick". My problem is that she is extremily jealous of the partners I had not only in the last 10 months but in the last 13 years of my life, even partners I have become friends with seem to cause her to be jealous and bitchy. The problem is that this really hurts our relationship, and makes me have doubts, I dont think I should stay with her just for my daughter but at times her jealousy gets too out of hand, I was a whore before, but not now, I never cheated on her or any of my ex's but she seems to think I might. So what do you all think should I just give up and do my best to have a proper relationship with my daughter without being with her mother, or am I being too quick at cutting the relationship short.
