The woman I've now met (let's call her Beth) has small children and a minimally-involved father who lives in the same city.
The "father thing" plays out on a couple of levels.
For me, even if the father is less than fully engaged in his children's lives, as a divorced father, it seems to me that interfering with a child's relationship with his father is a dangerous game -- dangerous because all children need as much of their fathers as they can get.
Since her ex is unable to make child support payments as it is, getting consent on lifting the domicile restriction could be done by reducing the support payments.
The other way out would be for Beth to demonstrate in court that the father is unfit to have any custody.
You two were a couple, and to see your spouse with someone else will trigger feelings in you that may be surprising and unpleasant.
It does not mean you are still in love but rather you are witnessing the evidence that your spouse now has someone else in the place you used to fill.We both have children, but mine are mostly adolescent or grown and have adjusted to the divorce very nicely.I believe they'd be thrilled to have me find a wife, and get a real place to live in.If you are feeling jealous, the last thing you want is for your ex to know.Instead of focusing on what he/she is doing, focus on living the best life you can and before you know it, you won’t be concerned with whether or not your ex is dating.5. The relationship that you had with your ex will never be reproduced with anyone else.Now, here I am looking at a marriage that can only succeed by putting physical distance between a set of children and their father. As often as not, the father ducks out on his one night a week and leaves the kids with her.
