    I went to the kiddos kindergarten graduation last night the X was there with his girlfriend and mother. Guess who wrote the full check for next years tuition for next years private school? I give you a clue...it was not the X.

    Lazer beams were coming out of my eyes. Oh yeah his child support payments that he use to try pay in quarters covers about 2 weeks of the food bill.

    1. Why does someone with a man's name and a male avatar speak as though they're a woman?
    2. If the child support isn't enough, take him back to court.

    This life experience sums up why, even though my boyfriend is seriously, the greatest guy on earth, after only 1.5 years of dating him, it will be a good long while before I'd even be willing to contemplate the M word.

    I never wanted to get divorced, but on the other hand, I'm not sure it was a positive for my kids to watch their dad constantly disrespect and cheat on their mom. That would tend to give kids a warped view of marriage, i think.

    It should have been a dead tip-off to me that my ex was living with his mother (at age 34) when we met.

    But, having said that, I don't rely on him to take care of my kids. I don't expect him to do so, and thus, I am rarely disappointed. I just plan at all times to take care of them, financially and otherwise.

    Um, wow? Are you speaking to a personal experience here? Because, in my experience, marriages fail just as often from the male side as the female side.

    1. Because you have preconceived notions of stereotypes.

There is a plan

    Would it be fair to say that women typically get married to young or before they have the chance to grow up a little, and thus make big decisions before they've developed proper judgment to know what they want out of life, out of a man?

    I use women here because again, women initiate the vast majority of divorces. I'm not trying to be misogynistic, I'm trying to address the typical example per-se.

    This is the most asinine thing in the world some gay and lesbian marriages are okay. Some are not. That is simply bull****. I hope that the state of CA has to spend 100 billion dollars in court defending this bigotry. I hope they go so in debt that they have to fold up shop. The mob has spoken so we have a piece of **** legislation that stands as law. Who ever said that the public should vote on laws anyway?

    There's a little icon you can use to clear that up.

    I know how that is, just be sure you don't spend more on the lawyer than you'll get out of the child support increase

    If the guy would pitch in I would not be bitching. If he would not steal packages off our front door I would not be bitching.
