  • It could do some damage to your relationship. You are so use to being with him all the time now,right? It might make you resentful or jealous. It is nice that he wants that and yes he needs a good relationship with her but for you 2 to be hapy and healthy he needs a relationship with you also. Thats just my opinon.

  • You can't really know untill that baby is born, having kids change everything, and besides somethimes people say one thing and when they are actually in that situation things change, and they don't do the things they say they would

  • It sounds like he is 100% devoted to being a good father to your baby and that is an awesome thing, there are lots of men out there give less than 10% in the "daddy job" Is this someone that you plan on spending the rest of your life with? Because if so you are going to need someone who is devoted to you as well, in my opinion part of what makes a good father is a man who can extend his love to his baby's mother as well, and that goes for fathers that are with and separated from the mother.

  • i'm not sure what ur saying, but i've heard that putting mommy and daddy first is the best example for your kids. sometimes my SO acts like i'm shit and our son is gold. i tell him that just bcuz he's always loving to our son,but hateful to me does not mean he's doing our baby a favor. i'm not at all jealous of our son- he gets lots of love and attention from both of us- but i think our relationship is alot of times bad for him...
