Honestly..this is all I'm trying to say. I'm not sticking up for the guy personally, or his actions (which are juvenile at best)...just the reason why he's doing this. I'm floored that it has gone this far....and the wife is allowing it!! The whole thing is ridiculous!!
Mavournin....I absolutely agree with you (and I know you didn't suggest divorce) I come from a broken home, not a civil divorce situation. I have known very few intact famillies in my life. I know of one person (my husband) who didn't have to endure a bad family split. His parents were civil and remained close friends for the sake of their son. I'm a firm believer in fighting for a marriage, especially when there are children involved...but alas, not everybody can work things out, and divorce is the best option in those cases.
Also, I agree with you about there being other issues in this marriage....it isn't just about the co-sleeping. There is obvious termoil between the two of them, and this display of poor behavior falls on both of the parents IMO. I think both of them deserve a brow beating and a lesson in civility. They obviously have no ability to communicate properly. I feel sorry for the kids....the husband and wife deserve eachother as far as I'm concerned.
What woman has children with a REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER??? and then expects him to be a compassionate father??? Seriously...I can't be the only momma who has a problem with this! This woman needs to wake up and smell the da*n coffee!!!!
