And You Thought Your Dating Life/Past Was Strange?

This sounds like something out of Jerry Springer:

I'm a 21-year-old student who's been dating a 45-year-old man for three and a half years. He's been technically married throughout our relationship (two years ago, I discovered he lied about being divorced). I've given him an ultimatum: He has to be divorced by July, when I graduate. He agrees, but supports his 26-year-old daughter and unmarried 46-year-old sister (even paying to remodel her bathroom), and pays his wife's mortgage and bills. He manages to take me to dinner and helps with my rent, but he's pulled in so many directions. I'm told I'm very mature for my age, but I don't know how to handle this. I do love him very much, and we plan to get married and have children. Please don't focus on the age difference. A 27-year-old could have the same issues with a guy.

Really? Forget the age difference, look at everything else you just wrote and try to identify how this man will make a good father and spouse? He's already cheated on one woman, he's got a useless sister he takes care of, he has a daughter older than you. He lied to you once already. He's not getting any younger. Can't you realize your worth and find a better match. If you dont feel your worth it, think about the baby, it deserves a dad who will be around for its lifetime, not just until it's a young adult.
