And Baby Makes Two (November 2008)

Dear Michelle,

Bill and I dated for almost three years, before we got married. We had discussed everything from children to religion. We were brought up with different religions, but both of us were non-practicing. We had decided that if we had children, they would be exposed to different religions and when they got older they could make their own decisions regarding religion.

But, after I got pregnant (on our honeymoon) everything changed. Bill started to go to a new church. He started praying all the time and carrying the bible. Bill asked me to come to church with him. I told him that he was free to practice any religion or faith that he wanted to but that I was free to follow my own beliefs. He gave me an ultimatum. He said that if I didn't embrace his faith, I would end up in Hell along with our baby.

I felt so much stress that I went back to my parent's home when I was six months pregnant. Bill never came to the hospital when the baby was born. Last week, he sent me a card telling me he loves me but, that he wants a divorce because he wants to get married again. The whole situation has caused me a lot of pain. Please, look at his handwriting. Any insight into him, would greatly appreciated.

Soon to be an ex in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Dear Soon to be an ex,

An ex-spouse is like an inflamed appendix...they cause a lot of pain and suffering, but after it's removed you find you didn't need it anyway!

The letters "o" and "a" are the communication letters. The clearer those letters, the clearer the writer communicates. Look the "o's" in Bill handwriting Do you see all the gobbilty-gook inside of the "o's" in the words, "love" and "you"? Those excessive loops and lines in Bill's "o's" show that he doesn't even know what he is saying to himself.

Also, do you see that Bill has written over and over again the "y" in the word "you"? Bill's repetitive overwriting indicates that he is excessively compulsive in behavior.

Bill's lack of open communication skills and compulsive behavior show that he's unable to understand his actions or be flexible. It makes you wonder how someone so inflexible can twist everyone around him into knots.
