BD owes 15k in child support arrears. No one cares. No one does anything. He's been living in sober living for 6 months now and doesn't work. He has a masters degree. I just want my associates so I can give LO a better life.



I'm going to be in school 25 hours a week and working 40 hours a week. And still barely able to pay bills. I saved for 3 months just to buy hair dye for myself. I get upset I can't afford small things for myself because he doesn't help me at all. Every penny goes to mine and LO's needs. His parents paid for him to go Palm Springs for a week. I would give anything to take LO somewhere local for a weekend and relax.



What makes me even more sad is he doesn't care for LO. Doesn't make contact doesn't ask about him. Sends a text one or two times a month asking how he is and that's only because his parents get on him about it. He's 28 years old... When will he grow up?



This is just a pointless vent... :( will delete soon anyways. Please don't quote.

Unfortunately some never do.. like my brother:( It's so sad and i just can not for the life of me understand it. Wishing you the best of luck on everything you are doing!! Things will get better!! Stay in school and do what you need to do and ignore anything that he's doing, it will only piss you off more.

I'm sorry mama! It's not fair at all...I would think they would jail him for owing that much!?

Well look at it this way. when YOUR child gets older they will know and understand the value of a dollar. You sound very bitter because his parents have money and do everything for him. You're making it. Barely but you're still making it. That should be an accomplishment. You're doing more as a single parent then most can say. You should be proud for what you're doing.

He won't




My ex is 33 with 5 kids and hasn't paid me a cent for our two and he makes good money.




Some men will always remain boys.

Of course I'm bitter, not just for that reason I have several reasons. Proud of myself too. I can be both.

Never once did I say she didn't have a right to be bitter!
