After me and my ex-wife separated, I didn’t want her to be taken advantage of, so when she called me in 2014 asking if there was anything I could do to help, she said she couldn’t pay for rent and food and that no one wanted or could help her, I gave her the money only if she promised to graduate, not to come back to me (even though that was what I wanted) but to make sure that she was independent and had a way to provide for herself and our son without anyone’s help. If she wanted to come back, I would hope it was because she loved me not because she needed me or couldn’t afford to be by herself. I didn’t want her to be dependent on anyone, not me, not anyone for her survival. So in 2014, after not receiving a full retirement paycheck for almost a year, I gave her money and would later become homeless. I lived on the streets of San Diego, moving from Florida to NJ and then San Diego, for a year.
She did an amazing job. She graduated and now supports everyone in her household and her mother in Colombia
