Tonight when my husband got home from work he informed me he wants a divorce and will be leaving until it's done. This is not a huge surprise honestly, ever since our daughter was born we've just not been getting along. What is a surprise is it's suddenness.

I've been a stay at home mom since our daughter was born two years ago, it just didn't make sense to work and spend 90% of what I made on day-care.

So in talking to him before he was finished packing he told me "Good luck with the mortgage and bills, I've taken MY money out of our bank account and turned off your card on MY credit". I would say I was shocked, but I really am not. He's very mean when he's angry and never has seemed to connect with his daughter, he wanted a boy and from the day we got the word we were having a daughter he's been distant.

I obviously need an attorney, I logged into our bank account sure enough it's at $5. What resources can I begin looking into to get an attorney for free to help at least make him pay the bills and food until I can find childcare and a job? Is there anything I can do myself with the courts that is semi quick to at least have him pay for the necessities since he cleaned out our joint account or at least money for an attorney? I understand it's all "his" money but we are married with a child. I don't see how he can just leave us with nothing all of the sudden.

I'm in Wisconsin, I've tried to Google up the best could since the little one went to sleep but I can't find what I'm looking for or even really know what I'm looking for. Thanks for anyone who helps

My boyfriend has always been a ’weeb.’ He was intensely into anime for a long time and to this day obsesses over Japanese history.

About two months into our relationship he told me Asian girls were, ” more attractive than other races” and ”liked the way they looked.” I brushed it off at the time, but the more I thought about it, the more confused and worried I would get.

I brought this up to him a couple weeks later and he got upset and claimed he didn't say that about asain girls.

After this incident, I started noticing how much he brings up the fact that I’m asain.

He would call me ’cherry blossoms’ and send me text of the white flower emoji (💮) and say it reminds him of me. Sometimes even sending me pictures Shibas and saying it resembles me.

Whenever he first came into my house and saw that my family puts their shoes at the door, he wouldn't let it go for days, saying how cute it was.

This doesn't begin to scratch the surface of what he says about Japanese girls and culture. Anytime I bring it up to him, he doesn't see how it's a problem. He’ll usually shift the blame on me or say having a preference isn't bad.

It's come to a point where I start feeling disgusted with him anytime he brings up anything Japanese.

I understand people have their preferences, but it feels like the main thing he finds appealing about me is my race, and it disgusts me.

Am I overreacting or looking into this too much? Is it okay for my boyfriend to have a fetish for my ethnicity?

I sat in the wrong spot on the couch. Was just wondering if anyone else started their day off on the wrong foot!
