If you SO had a small child when you got together and you were together for a long time then seperated would you still want to be a part of the child's life?

  • There have been step parents end up with custody of the child.I would want to being as my step childrens mother died in a car wreck when they were very small.I am all the mother they have ever had.It would be hard for me to give them up.I may even stay in the relationship not to loose them.I dont think in all cases you can get visiting rights.

  • My SD is still friends with her dad's ex girlfriend. They got close in the years they were together. If anything ever happened with us I know he'd stay involved with my kids. He is the only dad my two youngest have ever known.

  • I would end up with custody of my SS. I am the only regular parent he has, his dad works alot. SO not his fault but he would come with me like the rest of the kids and see his dad whenever possible.
