Do any of you that are calling him an irresponsible parent actually have kids? Just wondering. My ex has a son with another woman. She moved to another state and he cannot afford to go see him. Does that make him a shitty parent because he can barely keep the room over his own head? It sounds like he is trying his best giving his circumstances.
So I’m sure a lot of LGBT bee’s can relate to this problem. Currently FI and I live in a non-equality state. We’ve been talking about our options and we are in a standstill as to what our next option is. We are debating on if we should move to another state or if we should just head to an attorney and trying to legally protect our relationship.
The pro’s to moving is obviously it’s a marriage equality state and we can stop fighting the fight for equality in our relationship. We want out of our state because it’s hot and miserable.
The con’s being she is still in college and will probably be for the next 4 or so years so for the first year we would have to pay out of state tuition. She would have to find a new job (she’s currently a waitress). Not the end of the world on either option, but would be mildly annoying until we were settled.
I guess I’m just super scared to make a decision. Part of me wants to just stay and wait it out, but the other part wants full equality. Anyone else have these same struggles?
