Ask for the alimony and child support and whatever you can get. It's not a matter of you being able to raise the children by yourself. It's the fact that the children are also his responsibilities too. Why should he go scot free? There's no such things as a free lunch. I've got my stand very clear. If you cheat, you pay for it. I will not exact revenge but rather I'll do exactly what the law expects you to do. You're still young. And dont't like anyone else influence you on not getting alimony and child support. Plus, the women's charter has recently changed its laws. Men can be sent to jail if they default payment.
