Like I said, this man and I reconnected in May 2005 when I invited him and his kids to my college graduation.
I asked why and he said because they don’t want someone with kids.
I have a really hard time with this, too, simply because he shouldn’t have taken them with him in the first place.
I’m wondering if they are still not ready for him to move on yet, even though he says he is. We are still together, but the relationship is tenuous at best.
Most children don’t see themselves ever wishing their parent to remarry so unless he’s prepared to remain single for the remainder of his life, he may not want to leave those decisions to them.
Understanding, patience, sensitivity and even pacing things are sometimes necessary to help children come along.
