  • a b s l u t e l y for what i've been through and done for him. I raised our children he chose to not be involved because of his work. many other fathers in similar situations over time were clearly involved in day to day family life. I wasn't paid. I don't have a retirement account. He knows if he leaves he'll be supporting two households with mine in definite comfort.

  • No I'm a big girl and can take care of myself. We have even had this discussion before.

  • Absolutely not, I don't need a man to pay my way. I would be ashamed to take the money. Yes, he'd need to help support our children, but me? Please.

  • Yes because in this economy I would need help til I found a job.

    I like what happened with my mom...she got it for a year. That gave her time to get a job and start supporting us on her own,etc.

  • I would want nothing form my husband except being apart of my kids lives. I grew up without a father so I refuse to let my kids not have one.
