    Link the original thread? Please?

    I only have one child but will have different fathers if ever I have another. I think life would be easier to have numerous kids to only one man (providing that one man wasnt a jerk). I don't feel like I'm lesser for the fact my children will have different fathers... But I think I might if I had 4 kids to 4 different fathers though just because it would be pretty clear that I perhaps sucked at choosing men to have kids with...

    Not if it's like two different fathers, but when you start seeing 3,4, 5 different fathers, I begine to wonder what is going on with the woman involved and the men involved etc. I don't think I am better than them, but I do think there may be some issues there.

    No why would I feel better? I feel glad in that I'm still with my DH and don't have ex issues, but I certainly don't think I'm better. People break up for a multitude of reasons. Better to separate, repartner and finish your family than stay completely miserable for the rest of your life. There are no awards for being a martyr...

    I know I would.
    I hate that my kids have different dads.
    I feel much better when people don't know that DH isn't DS1's biological dad.

    I'm happy my kids both share the same Father but I don't think I'm better or even stick my noise up to those who don't.

    I actually think its great, it means people aren't staying in unhealthy relationships just for the kids like what used to happen.

    I am another who has never really thought about it. it doesn't make any difference to me on me how many different fathers siblings may have, so I have no right or need to judge.

    ^^ I feel somewhat similar to this. Not "better", more just concerned about what issues are behind such a pattern.

    As a side note; DD once asked me "How come you and daddy live in the same house? My friends daddies dont live with them!" Lol

    Oh how times have changed! Split families seem to be the norm!
