  • IF he lives the good life and you struggle, maybe he should be helping out more finacially t the care of his son. However, as far as him understanding what it is like to struggle and sacrafice he probably won't until he himself has to deal with that situation.

  • I suppose it could work, if both parties were willing to walk a mile in the others shoe!

  • Why sacrafice if you don't have to? If he can and wants to spoil your child and you, let him.

  • I think it can work. Before marriage I had had everything given to me. My DH had to work for everything he got (even school clothes!) Now we've had our financial up and downs and I've learned! lol
