Of course the money is called child support and it is for the expenses for my children which I helped place on this planet. The children that I love and gladly support. Here comes the although followed by a question. Although the money is for every aspect of their life need it be such a one sided responcabilitly?
The child tax credits go to her, the medical is paid by me and she declares minimum wage as income because she does not want to work. The obvious answers are, you should have known that she was not interested in working before you married her or the money is not for her but for the children, she is raising your children and that is a job in itself. Maybe the latter is the most true and deserving of understanding, She is the mother and she is raising the children. I could raise them but the cost of fighting the finances of the free social system for low wage earners and her high income supportive sister cannot be overcome. Time will pass and budgets will be made.
The future can still be bright. The children will age as will I and hopefully they will see the effort I made to help raise them.
