Ok, this breaks my heart everytime i think about it. I'm now car less because the man i thought was right for me decided that hanging with his friends and going to the bar was more important, On his way home from the bar, my boyfriend and his friend playing on the road with another car full with there friends as well. My boyfriend decides to drive on the same side of the road, to race his friend, a cop comes he tries to avoid hitting the officer by jerking the wheel and crashes into a poll instead. His friend that was in the car with him was badly hurt and my boyfriend almost died. His friend is suing me( not my boyfriend) IS this fare? My boyfriend feels he's done nothing wrong,and isn't trying to do anything to replace what he has taken from me, I don't have enough strength to leave, please give me some advice about how to handle this? He went to court i wanted to press charges since he doesn't show any remorse, but the case got thrown out.

This is a sad story, and there's no way that you should be brought into this. Obviously I think it's time that you leave your boyfriend.

That is sad, and I'm sorry to hear that. First and foremost, your man is not right at all for acting as if what he's done is ok (however, I do believe that sometimes a man may not actually show remorse, but they will do things to make the situation better). Your bf is not doing anything in his power to make any of this right for you (which a REAL man would do - I know that my bf would NOT have me carless over some dumb $hit that he had done. He would do everything in his power to make sure that me and the baby had everything that we wanted and needed), so truth be told, you don't need him. You can do bad all by yourself. As far as the passenger suing you, no that is not fair, and my suggestion to you would be to get a lawyer. Why was the case thrown out?

Thank you, the case was thrown out because they kept post poning the case, when the finally did decide they just said something about a discovery and it was over, They told him he had 1 year not to get into anymore situations like this or the case could be re opened. He hasn't even tried working towards getting me a new car. Everytime i try to bring it up he starts yelling and screaming. He apologized but thats not good enough for me.

This is horrible. The fact that your boyfriend thinks that he has done nothing wrong shows that he is either not thinking correctly or he just doesn't care. Sometimes we don't think that we have to strength to do somethings...but sometimes we have to. Your boyfriend has proven that he doesn't think about your feelings or wellbeing by taking your car, totaling it and then not paying you back in anyway...how on earth did this case get thrown out?

I have no idea how this case got thrown out. It was decided that it was a discovery. I'm not to sure what that means. BUt he walked away with any punishment.
