OK...here is a little background. My boys are all honor roll students.My oldest son is a governors scholar and both he and my thirteen year old are in the gifted and talented program at school.My 8 year old is doing well in school with 6 a's and 1 b on his last report card. My boys go to bed at 9:00 on school nights even my 16 year old.My 2 younger kids play baseball and my oldest plays football.My kids are not nasty, not rebelling they were raised as witness children and the oldest 2 gave talks at the hall.
As far as my last marriage of ten years. I was married to a dub. He committed adultery 5 times in the 10 years we were married. He was publicly reproved and disfellowshipped twice. I put up with the crap for ten years.Then I left him and divorced, he is now married to his last girlfriend.He paid $50/week support and we struggled. I work full time and have a good job but boys can be expensive. But I did it, I was not on welfare. I took up his slack. I was on my own with my boys for 3 years. I got my self financially stable had a nice home , provided a nice life for my boys.
Now here we are in this marriage, you say I am worried about money. My children are my fianancial responsibility. My husbands childsupport is garnished from his paycheck so his child is taken care of whether he works one day or all week. Why is his support garnished? Because he did not pay, he shirked the responsibility of his childsupport, this all took place before I came into the picture. Since we have been together he has repaid $6,000.00 back.His house was in foreclosure when we married and they came to our house to repo the truck.He assured me he had just had some financial troubles and it would get better.Guess what we got a foreclosure letter in the mail day before yesterday. Seems the house payment he was making got used for other things. In the last year he has increased our monthly debt by $1000.00 on loans that do not have my name on them but have been cosigned by his father but guess what as his wife I am still responsible.He doesn't even bring home $1,000/month.
Some of my other posts had more history to my past and some posters here know more about my situation. There has been more than just words to my children from him. Do you have children? It seems easy for you to talk negatively about them...I am assuming you are speaking from experience?
