I'd marry my daughter's father/Ex-husband again, just so I could divorce him again. lol! that's how much I dislike him, & that was 32 yrs ago. I left him when our daughter was 18 mo's old, & was awarded full custody. Her dad paid support faithfully (remember, this was before it was taken out of paychecks by court order) & had regular visitation. when she became more aware of what was going on, I always made the idea of seeing her dad seem like a special day she had to look forward to. I'd ask her what she wanted to do with Dad, & she'd have me make a list of things her & her dad could do together; you get the picture. I made her feel like it was a fun adventure, & for her it was. One thing I never did was bad-mouth her dad to her, nor argue with him in front of her. On holidays like xmas or her b-day, I would get excited & happy for her getting to have 2 b-day parties, 2 xmas trees, 2 visits from Santa etc.
