Eric you rock!!!
That was great advise that you gave the cheating husband (to see the post CLICK HERE
). 1st and foremost he needs to take responsibility for HIS
actions....we all do.
I will just share a short story about taking
responsibility for own choices. My DH has fought his ex
wife for the past 5 years on every single issue. She
argues anything and everything he says. Finally I had had
it and asked her point blank what the deal was, why did
she continue to fight and lose. Her response....I want my
kids raised in a traditional home (whatever the hell that
is). I told her that she gave up that right when she
divorced and her kids were from a divorced family partly
based ON HER OWN CHOICES. She really did not have a
response but after that DH would always advise her that
even though this may not be what she wanted it is what was
going to happen.
Thank God she finally gave up the fight and we now have
50/50 and very little crap from her anymore. Probably
helps that I now work for a family attorney and our legal
costs are 0 (which we advised her of in mediation the last
go around) Hee hee
Anyway keep up the good work.....
Thanks! Very few people ever thank me for what I write... maybe they don't like what I say, or they just don't think about it. But it's nice to read positive feedback!
Glad to hear your situation worked out. I'm posting it, to help others see that if one doesn't give up, even after 5 years of fighting, things can settle down dramatically and work out for the best.
If this dad had given up, it's likely that the mother would have largely pushed him out of the picture.
Again, thanks for the nice words, and take care.
