Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" YEah, I'm typing slow today,.... I did read it after I posted my last post. Well, OP has to decide ... [snip!] ... a relationship with his kid, though, he needs to pay CS and have freedom to take pictures. If not, don't let the kid go..... "
Quoting BoogerBear's Momma:" Again, that isnt any of your business how their relationship is. "
Quoting BoogerBear's Momma:" I said future step children...even if they didnt get married. You don't have to be married to be a family. ... [snip!] ... to be married to be a family. If I were to date anyone, they better be treating my child like their own. Married or not. "
Quoting Jas ♥:" She got sole custody for a reason and he has no visitation. Court order or not, he cannot be walking ... [snip!] ... to prove it to OP and her son. OP is the mother here and whether you or anyone else agree, she rightfully has the upper hand."
Quoting Jas ♥:" You think someone who cheats on their girlfriend constantly is an actual serious relationship, one that she should be considered family? You are a nut."
Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" She shouldn't let the kid even go to visit him since he obviously doesn't want to be a dad except for ... [snip!] ... she should give him some freedoms (I'm not saying take the kid to China on vacation or anything).... it's just an opinion. "
Quoting BoogerBear's Momma:" It doesnt matter if he cheats. If they want to be together, it is none of the mother of child's business ... [snip!] ... their family. Also, I don't know why you have to constantly throw in a name, but it makes you look severely juvenile. "
Quoting BoogerBear's Momma:" So you wouldnt consider your future step child family? "
Quoting Jas ♥:" It seems like she's trying to give her douchebag BD a chance. If she didn't let him see him, you all ... [snip!] ... proven that he's a smurf father so nope. If he wants to do something that involves their son, he needs to run it by her first."
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" They wouldnt be step children unles she married the guy for one. And for too, yes you can be a family ... [snip!] ... you can be a family w/o being married, but cheating on your GF and having been together only a year does not a family make. "
Quoting BoogerBear's Momma:" Family by definition is a fundamental social group in society typically consisting of one or two parents ... [snip!] ... Your idea of a family differs with how someone else sees it. It is not up to the ex to say whether their family is legit. "
Quoting Jas ♥:" You're one to talk. Really. and your brain must be mooshier than usual today because I don't see how ... [snip!] ... how anyone could think that a dysfunctional 1 year relationship could make someone family and a MOTHER FIGURE to someone's son."
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" Two parents and their CHILDREN. They have NO children together, and from the sounds of it, she has no kids, so she isnt a parent. SO in your view, they arent a family either."
