I excluded the women who were not married and had a baby out of wedlock because there was a meaningful relationship at one point so feelings were involved.
Do the *baby mamas* have a right to SAH and expect the father to support the child and them?
I ask this because my husband's 7 year old daughter's mother feels that she needs more child support than she is given ($400 month) because she is only working part-time. She feels that since he is married now, that MY income should be included in his income and therefore she should be entitled to more.
I'm sorry but if I'm the *wife* and *I* work full time, then she should be too. If her part-time job is not enough then she needs a FULL-TIME job. No way will I pay for a child that's not mine. If the child was living with us then that's another story but she isn't. I have our 8 month old to support and there's no way in hell I will also help to support HER child that SHE ended up having knowing she was a booty call once in a while and thought it was her fiance's baby until after the child was born and it was found out that it wasn't, therefore defaulted to my husband. (He wasn't my husband at the time).
My husband is just as livid as I am about this, but we challenged her to go to court and see if she could get more. We also told her that she better have a damn good lawyer because we sure as hell will.
Am I wrong for feeling this way?
