Moms who send thier kids to Dads house EVERY WEEKEND

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
When do you spend time with your kids? Do you work on weekends? Do you think it's fair that you get every weekend off while dad never gets a free weekend? Are you in a new relationship and want to spend all weekend laying around with your bf or party? I have 3 kids and my ex and I do EOW visitation so we alternate weekends with the kids. I work all week so if I sent then away every weekend I'd barely see them and wouldn't be able to do fun things with them. I'm curious to know the logic behind every weekend visitation?

I'm not a stepmom. No way would I marry a man who had his kids every weekend. I understand why stepmoms feel that way.

You sound like one of "those" step-mothers.

That's so sad that you would stay in an unhappy marriage just to "protect" your child.

I used to think like that, and was miserable for years before finally realizing that it wasn't worth it. My kids are 4 and 9 and are very happy. They have no issues spending some time with mom and other times with dad because their father and I have chosen to remain friends and be mature about the situation.

Just food for thought...

So happy in still married and don't have to worry about this. If I didn't have a kid I would be divorced but I do not want to spend even 1 day with out my kid so I will stay

He gets them every other weekend. If he were more civil and told less lies to our children about me, I'd let him have them more often because I work Sundays. For now, he only gets them when the decree says so.

When my son's dad was in the picture, he had him every other weekend and a few days during the week while he was off and I had work/school. It was something we worked out to where I was working when he had him and he was working when I had him. All parties were satisfied.

Court orders perhaps? Who fucking cares what other peoples visitation schedules are, christ.

 maybe their dad can only see them on the weekends and therefore wants them every weekends. maybe the mom works on the weekends and thats cheaper than paying a babysitter. or maybe..and this is going out on a limb..thats no one's business but the parents who do that.
