The BM divorced DH 7 years ago, remarried right away...got divorced 2 years after that. Met her current husband 3 months before marrying him. She very sloppy, lazy and is setting a bad examble for the skids. My DH and I work very hard for what we have and try to install GOOD morals and values in our children, but with having to pay almost $400 more a month is c/s it's going to be tough for us to maintain the lifestyle in which we are accustomed. Any advise?Answer Question

Accept it! C/S is not for the BM it's for the kids. It's so that they can have food, lights, clothing, shelter, heat etc. I understand how it's tuff. The BM job status has no baring on what your husband financial responsibly is towards his kids. I may not have first hand experiences in this matter, but I know what it's like. Since I've grown up and moved out my Mom has remarried and her husband has to pay monthly child support (a huge amount) AND 2/3 of the college tuition for his oldest.
As a result they don't have any money and have had to give up a lot of things, just to pay the bills. Does my Mom get flustered over it? Yes she does, Does he sure he does, but at the same time he knows that it's for his girls and because of it they have a place to live and food to eat.
