I don't regret my baby's, but I regret who I had them with. I love my husband and he is a great Guy but his family is off the hook crazy. Dramatic druggies egotistic looneys. I met my husband when I was 15 and he was 17. (8 years together) but I didn't meet his family till 2 years ago after our kids were born cause we live out of state. If I would have known the blood line I was giving my kids I wouldn't have had them with him. Apparently my father in law and mother in law and both sides are completely bonkers. I love my boys with all my heart. I just hope since we arent near them they will turn out different. So what about you. Have you ever thought maybe you should have chose a little wiser?

My husband's family is a little on the crazy side, as is mine. We live our lives completely different than they do. 

Is your husband anything like his family? I'd personally be horribly insulted if my husband ever said he wished he'd chosen a little wiser, based off the impression of my mother. 

If he's a great husband and father, I don't see what the problem is. If you don't like his family, do what we do, and put plenty of distance between you.

No, we don't. We're happy together, regardless of how crazy our families are. It's him i married, not his mother or father. My guy is a wonderful father to little man and a loving, silly husband and to me, that's what matters most.

If anything had been different your kids would be completely different.. Don't let family change the way you feel about your kids. They aren't important, your little unit is.

Does your husband act like his family? I would be very upset if my husband said he wished he didn't have kids with me because of my family. :/

No. I do not have any children with my husband, we each had a child before we met, and we are also raising our niece and nephew, so four kids. I am currently pregnant with our first together. My son is the result of a rape. Clearly, his biological father is a monster. I was 12 and he was over 40 when he raped me and got me pregnant. I worried during the pregnancy that my son would be like him, that he'd carry those traits. My son is all me and my husband. The genes don't matter, what matters is how they are raised. My son emulates my husband, who is the only father he's ever had, and despite not sharing any blood, they are very close and ds is just like him. I have no idea what my blood line is, I'm adopted, and I have no way of ever finding my birth parents, even if I wanted to. I was dumped as an infant, so clearly, my birth parents aren't the nicest people either. It doesn't matter where you come from. What matters is what you do and how you raise your children. My niece and nephew, who are our children in every way that counts, were raised by two very awful people, who abused them. They are two of the most amazing teenagers I know, and are nothing like their biological parents. So to answer your question, no.

Nope I don't regret my husband, or his family, or our daughter. His family has been with me through my worst. They were there through out my pregnancy and dealing with my own birth mother. Yes I call her that because she doesn't deserved to be called mom.

We focus on OUR family, just us, and keep any family that is unsavory far away.

We have a great life.

The only thing I regret in life is getting a dog. My husband and baby are flippin' awesome.
