I would post this on blended families which I believe is under the Bump.  You do realize, though, that it is normal for there to be an adjustment period, right?  The Brady Bunch was not real.  It sounds like your husband has a lot of baggage.  What is the deal with his other two kids?  If you repost try to use paragraphs and use and instead of n etcetera.


I am not sure why you would be with someoe who whines about child support.  Why did you not deal with these issues before you got married?  Why are you willing to give up on marriage so fast?

nevermind! Wrong forum.

Re: Caught something someone dropped!

  • Yeah, I could barely read that. 

    Doesn't sound like their marriage is going well, though.  

    Hope is not a strategy.
  • Sounds like she married a guy with 5 kids and a criminal record. 
  • Why would a woman with three kids support ever marry a man with five kids that can't get a permanent job BC of his background?

    They seem like the ghetto version of the Brady Bunch. What shenanigans will they get into this week?

  • My heart breaks for those poor kids. They sure as hell didn't ask to be born into such a pathetic mess.

  • I can't believe that she now has eight innocent kids trapped in this mess. Wow.

    Did she ever re-post it somewhere like the Blended Families?

  • Who knows what's on his record.

    It could have been something that happened years ago and when they ran a background check on the guy when he applied for a job, there it was.

    If that person's still lurking, try your local food pantry if you're having trouble feeding your kids on a fixed income.

    Sitting the kids down and reading them the riot act and setting rules for them to treat each other civilly will help, too.

  • This woman clearly stated that she has one child, so I'm not sure where you are getting that she has three.
  • N E 1 who got tho that is a mch btr person thn me.
