When we were together, ex H was too busy to ever take time off to go away anywhere with myself and the kids.
Now we've split, he takes his GF(s) away every long weekend and then bigger trips almost every 2 months - OS junkets included. Money is no issue to him
My kids have noticed and ask why he couldn't ever do anything with them, but can go away so much now. They especially notice as their friends all disappear for holidays during the school breaks, yet they never go anywhere.
The thing is that with the kids and the bills, I'd be battling to afford to even go camping.
I don't trust the ex as he isn't a great father and I wouldn't trust him with them (he has never had them overnight is the 2.5 yrs we've been separated), so I wouldn't let them go anywhere with him.
Has anyone had this same issue? Do the kids resent you for it, now or when they're older? I feel bad not being able to give then any of these extra things in life
