I read not long ago that the reason second marriages fail is two-fold - kids and money.

Startingover:

You said you lived together for a year, but it wasnt until combined checking accounts that fights began----------does DH not see that also?

Seems like a no-brainer then.....

Anyhow:
RE: dad "was there " for child when you werent----yeah, I get that with my kids also----my exH was NOT paying attention to details of kids lives---always left that to me. So, now were divorced, kids are young adults---he's the same, not paying attention to details........so, young son is taking on huge amounts of debt unwisely, mom (me) discusses this with him----the down side to all of this ----and he tells me I'm not "supportive" of him like dad is---dad DOESNT pay attention to these details of what son's actually doing, and just nods and says, "that's nice, son"------------

RE: in 2-3 years this will be over----

from my experience, some parents who are in habit of giving kids money for (EVERYTHING) will continue to do so......

Actually, I guess that's not entirely true...dh and I have been fighting about kids for most of our relationship...his boys with drugs and my daughters with disrespect to me (dh can't stand that).
