Without writing a BOOK and life story, so responses showed a lot of misunderstanding.

1. I was never married. My ex and I are cool. We were 24 when we had our child, but she decided she still wanted to fool around (with my neighbor no less) so that relationship ended. My kid is 12.

2. She had her first when she was 15, got married at 16, and then divorced 10-11yrs later. Her kids are pretty much grown. I showed up while the divorce was going on. Tried to explain alimony and child support. Advice not taken.

3. She is not supporting everyone all on her own. Her mother works, and for almost 2yrs, she lived between my house and her fathers (where the kids were, my house is too small to put all of us in)

---geez I guess I could go on, but it would take forever. Also seems like round two responses were the negative blast, instead of trying to be helpful/rational.

4. Most importantly, this is a matter of the heart, but unfortunately the way our society and world is set up, everything is mingled in with money.

Ill let you guys know how the "talk" goes next week!
