Relationships: The Ex Life
Submitted by DylsMommyJ
Oh, if I would have only known this would be so hard ... I just found out my ex-husband and his girlfriend of six months are having a baby and I must say I'm a little steamed about it!
I cannot help but think about the effects this will have on my son. As if having a new sibling (after 5 ½ years of being the ONLY CHILD) isn't going to be a big enough change, "Dad" and "Girlfriend" have apparently decided to get married.
So it seems history does repeat itself!? Just six short years ago (almost to the day!) the ex-husband and I found out I was pregnant and decided on a shotgun wedding. ...
The moron is already telling me he shouldn't even be paying me child support because my SO makes "good money." Apparently his child's well-being should be another man's responsibility??? Is the "new" family really his only concern? Doesn't his firstborn matter anymore?
I despise the example my ex is setting for my son! And even more the fact that this is something I cannot control! All I can do is hope that my current significant other and I can be the example for my son, take a deep breath, and offer nothing but excitement and understanding when my son brings the issue up.
