So you guys think it is right that Ourbradybunches husband is going through this? I know you will think he is a good father since he followed her around dragging new family with but do you think the BM is right in what she is doing even stating for him to give up. I mean come on you cant think she is doing whats best for the child.
I don't agree that all/most/alot of men only want more custody to reduce CS. Obviously there's plenty of pricks out there who do this BUT there's definetly some good ones😆
I think CS should be set at an amount like FTB part a, it seems wrong that mum a with a 2 yr old gets $10 a week yet mum b with a 2 yr old gets $200, how the hell is that fair???
Why is child a worth more than child b???
How could 50/50 care in our situation not be in the child's best interests.
Better job/housing/education opportunities etc etc.
Plus as my own bio kids receive a private education we would be covering ALL costs for DH kids to have the same private education😭
You do not know all women. Just because you haven't seen it happen, doesn't mean it doesn't. This is exactly what we did, as our child's best interests were most important. Of course, even as adults, the reality of what is the child's best interests can be difficult for everyone to cope with.I have never heard a woman say " well ex and I are yet to discuss custody of the kids & who they will live with as of course I want things to be fair & in the best interests of the kids "
Sorry, but in what situation of a separated couple is the man financially responsible for the woman studying? My ex is not financially responsible for me while I study.I would include studying/work but I have to be honest if mum & dad split & mum studies but does NOT work it's not dads responsibility to financially support mum until she finishes studying. A dads responsibility is to financially contribute to his child.
Again, only if 50/50 is actually practical. It quite often isn't if the two parents are not living close to each other.However I think if you have 50/50 care of your child you can bust your a$$ in your week without kids to work & study surely?????
If not I think that's showing my point of women doing what's easiest. I know from experience that working & studying is NOT easy but sometimes as a mother & a woman who wants what's best for your child you have to just suck it up & do what needs to be done.
Forgive me if i am reading this wrong but it appears as if you are saying that if a mother doesn't work as well as study she is taking the 'easy' way. I can assure you this is not the case. Again, I study FULL TIME. And have primary care of my child. There are not enough hours in the day to add work to the mix as well due to my study load and the needs of my child.
