    Wow that article was a little extreme. I do agree it’s a bad idea to raise children in that household, but for someone to say you have to see someone every day to be married and then refer to his wife in quotations, well, that’s kinda poopy. It’s not as though the author divulged lots of details to give us background

    Glad you have some time to think about it slicey =]

    It’s definitrly nice to know that if you are going to do it, there IS an end to it, not just an open-ended question sort of thing

    @ejs4y8: Yeah, that article is a bit extreme, but then again, it’s talking about an extreme situation (choosing to have a child while in a long distance relationship). A long distance marriage isn’t so strange – but long distance parenthood? I guess it offers an extreme view of what *can* happen in relationships that end up being long distance for the long term, which is why my mind thought back to that article when I read about OP’s situation. Obviously the situations are quite different, but in any case, that article offers one advice columnist’s perspective about a vaguely similar situation.

    Yeah no joke! That poor kid would be shuttled around so much! I can’t even fathom doing that to a child…
