Basically, we want the kids 50/50 but she refuses as then she wouldn't be 'able to get as much money from us'- her words.
As stated, I am happy to pay for their upbringing. My bio father paid nothing towards mine, and I refuse to let me stepkids go without. But 50/50 is fair. Especially as their mother earns more than their father.
She just refuses to buy stuff for them- we actually had to buy new winter clothes for her house for them as she refused.

I inherited a small amount when my mother passed away, and bought a house for $84 less $7K first homeowners. It's postage stamp sized on a massive block so a great investment, I paid it off while single and it has paid me a small income ever since. So yes - in the lucky camp, however I'd trade it for my mum back.

I bought my first house using the first home owners grant, plus I got a loan for 103% of the value of my house. I didn't save up anything, plus I didn't even have a permanent job! I was only temporary at my job lol. That was well before the GFC, obviously
We renovated and sold that, then rented and bought a block of land to build on. Then we sold that and rented until we found our house out in the country. Every time we've sold, we've increased our money.
