Here it is understood that parents alternate weeks; if the parties don't agree, then they make other arrangements. I have lots of divorced friends who do it that way and the fathers are very happy because they can be very involved in their kids lives every other week because they have them for one whole week, and the kids like it too, if you think about it, Cub, the kids are less moved around that way than the other way.
And in your case, Mel, here, if it's clear that the father is the better parent, the kids go to the father, end of story.
I can't believe it's still like that in the States
Mel, I don't understand how come you see her only every second week-end and one night a week... this is absolutely awful!! THey still allow that in the U.S.???? I'm sorry but that country sure is backwards sometimes!!!!
Here, in Canada, the parents alternate weeks!!! The father has his kids one week, the mother has them the other week. And so both have EQUAL time with their kids!!!
I get soooo UPSET when I hear stories like yours... ONLY IN THE STATES!!!!!!!!
You were in the Emerald City and didn't bother to look me up? How about a raincheck?
In answer to your Q, Seattle has been blessed with the most beautiful weather the past two months... we usually have a lot of rain this time of year, but today was 75 degrees and beautiful, again. Spring has Sprung!
That said, t is fair to say Spring Fever has claimed its latest victim.. Me! I am ready to plan another trip and am looking for a travel partner...
Happy Friday~ I am brand new here, and intend to bring some positive energy and enthusiasm with me. I look forward to forming connections and leaving a good impression. Have a wonderful weekend mm's!
