Gayest thread in a while.
Glad things are getting better Nick, I hope you and the Ex can work it out to some level of cooperation for the sake of the kids. It’s damn tough when there are kids involved. Best of luck with everything and you definitely deserve a break after dealing with all that.
Thanks, man. I don’t think it’ll get any better anytime soon as she’s still hurling insults at me, even when I just want to talk about the kids. My goal is to be the best father I can be, even if they’re 300 miles away. As long as I put them first, teach them well, and provide a home where they can feel peace, everything else will fall into place.
How does "being the best father you can, 300 miles away" work, practically speaking?
Having grown up in a house with parents that couldn't stand each other, and going through a divorce myself- IMHO you and your kids are better off. You have escaped a toxic marriage and when you do find happiness with someone else, your kids will have a chance, at least while they visit you, of seeing what a normal, healthy relationship looks like. Hang in there man...
