How do you know when it's time to end a relationship?

I’ve only been with my partner for four months; I met him while I was pregnant. He was amazingly supportive and was there for the labor (real dad not in picture) anyway, fast forward a bit baby is seven weeks now, partner is an alcoholic (didn’t know this when I met him) has been diagnosed with an ulcer and internal bleeding but still drinking every day, he is lazy sleeps a lot doesn’t do stuff around the house, doesn’t wake for feeds, my feelings have changed for him I just don’t feel the same anymore, he is very childish and constantly digging at me which makes me feel rubbish and upset, my question is should I feel guilty for wanting to end things with him I just feel I have another child to look after not a supportive partner thanks all.

Sounds like you know <3 HUGS

No, don’t feel guilty. End it now before you waste any more time. This will do nothing but take away from your precious baby. You are right that you have another kid to take care of. The picking at you is just the beginning. Get out NOW.

Reread this message. I think you’ve answered your own question. This guy sounds like a ticking time bomb…leave.

Leave. Don’t feel guilty either because your main focus needs to be on your 7 week defenseless innocent baby.

Don’t feel guilty for thinking of you and your child’s well being!!

He’s not the father, and that’s WAY too early of a relationship to know how he is or expect him to step up.
You’re already feeling so bad, best bet is to walk. You have no reasons to stay.

No need to feel guilty. You have a seven week old that needs you, you don’t have the time for a man child

My therapist said when your holding on to one good day to survive the many bad days that it is a sign to move on

Normally I don’t jump on the “get out” train but I would in this case. Its still early into the relationship and lots of red flags going up already. Ive been with my alcoholic spouse for 7 years now and I can honestly say it is NOT the life you want or you want your kid raised around.

If you’re asking or have doubts… you know in your heart girl. Get out before you get in too deep.
