    Default **SPIN OFF** If you DONT have different fathers for your children...

    ...do you feel at all 'better' than those who do have different fathers for their kids? Even a little? Occasionally? Not in the slightest?

    Just out of sheer curiosity, nothing else. Poll coming.

    If I feel better than someone who has children to different fathers, it is for reasons other than the paternity of their children.

    I'm happy that my babies have the same daddy, because the logistics of coparenting with someone you don't love seems like it would be a bloody nightmare, and I'm glad that hubby is a great father that they can have access to whenever they want

    But as for feeling like I am somehow better? Err, no.

    I don't really get the stigma, even if a woman had 6 kids to different fathers, the only thing you could logically and accurately guess from that situation is that she has had sex six times in her life, hardly a ***** maketh! Anything else one assumes is just stupid and judgmental because you just don't know.

    Not in the slightest . In fact I admire them because it usually means they have been a single parent at some point and while I havnt been a single parent , 3 of my closest friends have and it's damn hard. Good on them for getting a second shot at love !

    No, I don't really care who fathers anyone else's children. 2 of my siblings married women that have kids from previous marriages plus their own children, and all I think is good on my brothers for taking on someone else's children, it must be tough.

    I am very happy that my kids share the same daddy because I'm with DP for life but If I my kids were from different dads it wouldn't matter

    Better hell no.
    I am no better than anyone else. I don't believe anyone is better than anyone else anyhow. We all have different challenges we need to work through.
    I am blessed that Dh and I have a great marriage and both are willing to work on it.

    No I dont feel better - I feel grateful to not have had to go through what many others have, and grateful that I have my husband but definitely dont think I am better than anyone because of it.

    Yeah I do when they scenario is 'hi , how are you let's date, let's have a baby within a year, let's break up and see other people, let's hate each other and fight over patenting, hi new partner let's date, let's have a baby within a year , let's break up, let's hate each other and fight of parenting, hi newest partner let's date, let's have a baby within a year'

    I do believe having a child isn't just about the fact you can have a child.
    I believe a child benefits from a stable home and stable parents not necessarily within the same home though. But this type of behaviour I don't find stable.

    I do know of a few people in the scenario described above and I do feel 'better' then them. I admit it
