Re: Give me insight please: Former spouses and parenting

Imagine for a moment if your DH walked out on you and your kids that you had together, and married someone else, had kids with them, and then that new wife was upset because she felt he was paying too much child support, doing too much driving, etc. Would you feel sympathetic or would you stick it to him a little?

I think most people will have sympathy for YOU but not for your DH who made the choice to leave his family, have another family, move far enough away from family #1 that driving there is an issue (gas, car maintenance, time, etc) and now you, the new wife, gets to stay at home supported by him while she has to work to support herself and the kids.

BTW, I am a SAHM too, so I don't have a problem at all with SAHM's! I don't want you to get the wrong impression. But from her viewpoint, I can understand.
