  • It would be wrong for me, under almost any circumstance. I can't judge someone else's situation with so little info, though. It would also depend greatly on how long it's for.

  • You realize your kids think you're dumping them off to be with a man instead of them. Have you thought about how that makes them feel even if it's not the actual truth? Truth or no truth that's what they believe. Either way, work or man, I think it would be a very selfish thing to do and very damaging to your relationship with your children. Period.

  • No I wouldnt. This stems from my own childhood and adulthood of feeling "put out" for my dads girlfriends.

  • I don't think its wrong, everyone has a different situation and if that's what you have to do so u can work then its what u have to do , you can't worry about what people think even your kids sometimes as long as you know why you've made that decision that's all that matters

  • Yes I think it's wrong. Why couldn't you take your kids? Have you thought about how it makes them feel that their own mother would leave them for a man? How would you feel if when you were in high school your mother told you, I'm leaving don't know when I'll be back? I don't know the whole situation, but based on what you said it's not something I would do.
