Nasty, gabby6? I definitely presented an alternate reaction than some of the other posters, but I don’t feel that I was improper or disrespectful towards the OP.

 

We only know what she’s described here. I admit that the story presented to us rubs me wrong (jmho) since she basically said that she was unwilling to stay married because 1) she didn’t want to live in his home country as he did (and remember, he’d already lived 7yrs in her homeland), 2) she didn’t want to wait out his job hunting process, 3) she didn’t want to wait out her own job hunting process, and 4) she didn’t want to live with his parents (although I would definitely only want to live with inlaws temporarily, myself!) The OP asked us what kind of parent would walk away from their kid, and I also wonder what kind of wife would walk away from their marriage because of the reasons she cited? She wasn’t willing to relocate (even for a time) to the homeland of her husband? (Especially when there’s a child involved, grandparents, extended family, heritage and culture, etc.) Again, these are just my first impressions and reactions.

Anyway, she now wants to strip his parental rights due to his being a distant parent. I mentioned that the process might be difficult, and that if he does change his mind and relinquish rights then it would make things move more smoothly. I do wish her well. But I still think it wise for her to be prepared to take a step back for a moment, look at the situation with a different eye, and consider how it can look to the eyes of a family court.

Parental rights being severed can be a nasty business, so, if I’ve described things too bluntly, then, my apologies.

malouloune:  

Your giving further details such as these certainly does paint a different picture. Thanks. Again, I wish you well. Hopefully your court proceedings go well as you move forward.
