I've been dating a guy for a little over a year now, and he has a 2-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. In the beginning of our relationship, I kept finding out on social media that he'd gone places with his ex and his ex's family. Months later, I saw that they all went to a festival together in a different state with some friends. (He told me and had proof that they didn't sleep in the same bedroom.)
When he came back, he told me he has been living with his ex for three years because of their child. Ever since he shared that, he communicates a lot more. He's afraid to tell his ex about us (she's stubborn), and afraid to move out because she's threatened she'll get full custody. He can't do anything because he doesn't have a job. He watches his daughter six days a week because his ex works night shifts. He can only go out one night a week. We can only see each other for a couple of hours every other day.
Him being in his situation has made it hard for us to take the next step in our relationship. Since he was lying in the beginning, it's still kind of hard to trust him to tell me what's happening between him and his ex. Is it worth waiting to see where this can go?
