My ex dh likes to complain to his family that I'm keeping his near 6 year old son from him. He lives in Melbourne I live in SA, he chose to move back to Melbourne, in 4 years he hasn't come over to SA once in that time, yet he expects me to fly to Melbourne with ds to see him. It would cost me $500 on airfares for. Both me and my son, around $600 in accommodation for a week plus extra for food activities etc for me and ds to do when he's no seeing his dad. For some reason my ex can't come to SA for a week to see ds as he apparently can't afford it yet he can go over to Vietnam with his new wife and 2 kids to see her family.
He thinks that as I'm on centrelink I can afford to spend a months income on going to Melbourne to see him yet he works and can't afford it.
The funny thing is my ex mil comes over every year for a week to spend time with it and she really enjoys her week with us. She just spent the first week of the school holidays with us and she enjoyed sharing ds bedroom and spending time with ds.
Ex misses out on all this but that's his choice as he chose to move back interstate and not visit ds. I would take ds to Melbourne to visit him interstate if my ex paid half the cost of a visit but he won't.
Oh! Well I never! Was there ever
