so my fiance and i just broke up..... he out of the blue dumped me 7 months before the wedding....I had most things planned and now i dont know what to do with myself... i moved to a diff town to be with him and now we have a year old son. I want him to be around his dad all the time but at the same time i want to be back with my family.

  • I think it might be a good thing to be with your family during this rough time. Maybe later yall can hook up for the baby to get to spend time with his daddy, but right now, you need to get back on your feet so you can be the best mama you can.

  • I think at a time like this it is important to have your support system, so I would go to where that is.

  • BTW, I'm sorry this is happening to you :(

  • I'm very sorry. I don't have much advice, but you have to do what's best for you. If staying there works then do it. But if you need the support from your friends and family in your hometown then go back. You will have to set up a schedule with your ex fiance which can be very difficult. But things will be ok. You have your baby! Good Luck.

  • I'm so sorry you are going through that. If I were in your shoes I'd move back to wear your family is. Maybe you can move in with your parents for a short period of time so you can get things settled. Get child support settled, find an apartment, job etc.
    If you need someone to talk I'm here and willing to listen. Just pm me.

  • My adviced would be to do whats best for you and your child right now, and if that means moving back with your family so you can get back on your feet so you can be the best mom you can for your child then do that. If your childs father wants to be in your childs life, he will have to make the effort to be there.

  • I would go home to your family. You need support and help right now. You can work out visitation no matter where you are. I'm sorry you're hurting so much.
