comment My wife wants a 4th baby, but I don't
OP says they have talked about it for days. There is a fundamental disagreement and no one should be coerced or argued into having a child they don't want, especially when they already have 3.

comment How to explain your absence to 4 year old
@GeoffHutchison does the pain of not seeing them and not having them a part of your daily life ever go away. Do you think the time you were seperated had a big negative effect on your relationship with you children ?

comment Working mother but unemployed father
@MJ6 even if the assumption that the father earns no money is accurate you would be upsetting a lot of mothers if you claim the stay at home parent makes no financial contribution. theguardian.com/money/2007/mar/08/g2

comment Are my parents to break my relationship apart?
If you live with your parents they are entitled to set any house rules they want. But I would suggest to you that they are motivated by love and not spite. Ask them directly if they have a problem with the relationship and if they do then ask for specific things that they object to. It could be that your judgement is being clouded by your feelings and your parents might be doing what is best for you.

comment Helping a child cope with a parent's relationships
You seem very intent on forcing a very traditional gender role onto your son. People should focus on what makes them happy in relationships, for some people that isn't marriage or long term relationships. For example his father's mistake was actually getting married in the first place when that life clearly wasn't for him. The high turnover of women in his life might be by design and not because those relationships failed. It is no coincidence that you want your son to choose to behave in a way that would mirror your ideal partner but that might not be what makes him happy.

comment Visiting a third world country before meeting a newborn
Just faced the same issue with my father, he just came back from west Africa and wanted to visit, our children are 4 years and 6 months. We told him to wait 6 weeks. He wasn't happy but ultimately you have to do what you think is best, your children need to come before other people's bruised egos or hurt feelings

comment How do I handle when my step kids parent buys them everything they want?
I don't have much sympathy to be honest, if you think you have it hard imagine how the father feels.

comment How should infant refer to Father (biological) and Father (step)?
It is terrible to hear this and stories like these break my heart. He should ONLY be calling you daddy.

comment Handling strong need to protect family
i agree, if you want the capacity to defend yourself and your family then you need a gun, anything else will just be security theatre.

comment How do I help our 3/yo go through stress
@sbi the statistics are clear when it comes to children with divorced parents. Divorce is inherently selfish, you may be sick of your marriage but your children are not, It is all they have ever known.

comment Son 22 asks me how to deal with a friend with benefits, so that she does not get hurt
-1 from me. Answer seeks to treat an adult woman as if she is a child that needs to be protected from the consequences of her own decisions.

comment Son 22 asks me how to deal with a friend with benefits, so that she does not get hurt
I agree with @fkraiem as long as he is honest from the start and doesn't lead her on then as an adult she is responsible for her own choices. If she is hurt it is not your sons fault or responsibility.
