Hi there mommies,
I'm sure I'm not the only one but my life has become pretty complicated lately...
I got married when I was 19 and had a daughter in 2005 with my husband. In 2008 we separated and split custody of our daughter. When she started school we decided it was best for her to live with him full time. She's 8 now but I only get to see her a couple of weeks in the summer and on holidays when I can.
In 2012 I moved to California from TX (where my family still lives) and after the longest time of being single I ever experienced, I met a great guy and we have been making each other happy for 8 months now.
Still not divorced, I never wanted to get married again or have another kid. But the universe surprised me and I'm 3 months pregnant now! We have talked about it and even with a baby together neither of us want to get married (even if we could) but we decided to keep the baby and be together as a family. As much as we love each other, I'm afraid that getting married will just make us feel more trapped and eventually make us resent each other.
So... still married to my daughter's dad, having a baby with another man, wanting to get divorced but not wanting to get married again... it's complicated. Haha.
I'm curious if there are any other moms out there that are with their kid's dad but not married? How does it work for you?
