Hello everyone!

Because debate topics appeal to articulate people with strong opinions, discussions on debate boards are sometimes heated. Please take a moment to review our iVillage Rules of Play.

If you are looking for a supportive forum to discuss bio mom or stepmom ideas and issues, please visit our support boards. Please do not bring specific issues from these support boards to this debate board.

Tell him that as long as he is the father he is reponsible for providing for his children just like you are. Yes a SP provides for skids but it is not there responsibilitly. If he prefers not to be a parent and hold no financial responsibilities for them maybe he shouldn't be a parent and go to court. I have a real big problem with people who have children and then expect other people to raise there children whether it be a BM or BF. I am a SM and I provide financially for my SD, but I do it because I want to not because I have to! It's pretty funny how as step parents were suppossed to provide financially for a child that is not ours but we recieve absolutely no rights!!!
