I understand a man has to help support his kids but when the wife asks or demand her check why does it feel like it is not going on the kids...even though some of it is.
But what I don't get is she'll call and ask for the check and tells him why bc she had to do extra expendatures for the kids, but yet we always hear from the kids that they are always throwing parties (celebrating birthdays or whatever).
How is this suppose to make us feel :( when you yourself is struggling to make ends meet. Sometimes I just tell my self how much we have left on paying her counting down the years, that is all we can do. I wish her well anyway.

After a very long time and counting. 9 mos..woot! I do understand your concern. But, you simply can not look at the support that way....you can't worry/stress/wonder how it's being spent. It will literally drive you nuts. I'm a crazy example. lol Believe me...the bitterness from knowing that our hard earned $ is going anywhere but the children has got me over the years. Don't let it get to you.
I agree with the posters who said you MUST go thru CSE! It is true...anything you give to her/him after CSE is and will be considered a gift. You must do those "extra" things from the heart....even if you do not think or see it going where the X said they needed it. I know we gave for the kids...we can not help where it goes after it has left our hands or checks.

Next question overall
Do you know somebody who's died of 'smokers' lung cancer?
