My BFF has decided to leave her husband of 5 years. They have 2 children together. BFF is an LPN, her husband is a limo driver. Initially Ex was upset that she was leaving him and said he would provide no support for children. Now ex has said he wants to go 50/50 with BFF for kids expenses, food, child care, tuition and miscellaneous. BFF doesn't want to do 50/50, her kids expenses are about $1400-$1600 a month. She wants Ex to pay $1000 a month because of her "rent"
She accused me of siding with Ex, when I stated 50/50 was a good compromise, whereas if he were to put himself on child support, she'd only get $100 a week for both kids.
FYI: BFF has history of living beyond her financial means, goes clubbing every weekend and is always planning weekend getaways.
My question is she being selfish or is Ex really supposed to pay more???
