Speaking from personal experience, if the parents are not getting along, it's better for the child that they go their seperate ways. Being raised by two parents who are unhappy with each other does not a happy child make.

I have to agree with Chris on that.

But guess what Louanne called last night and wants to come back..lol I told her yeah but we aint sleeping in the same room any more.Well unless the need arise's..lol if you know what i mean.But anyway she went to her grandmother's and her grandmother lives like one of those old pack rats .The place hasnt been cleaned in years mounds of papers all over.The hot water isnt working and there is a 5 inch layer of dust on everything.And her TV is all distorted and yellow.It needs a new tube (well a new tv really) but her grandmother says its fine and she wont let louanne hook up her TV in to the cable with a splitter because she thinks the cable company will find out.So i told her to just come back and we will work on some things and if it dont work out she can go again but atleast she can get her self prepaired for it this time she left with hardly any money so she couldnt even go to a motel for a few days.

That's awesome...Now all you gotta do is find a home for the kitties or leave some flaming poop on the doorstep of the people who turned you in for your cats.

Well Ian, recincilliation is unfortunately not possible. FOr a number of reasons. Mainly being the fact that she's seeing someone else already, and the fact that I really would not want to be in a relationship with a person like her egain.

I've been trying to get along for my little girls sake, but her mam seems to want to make thing unnecessarily difficult.

Ah well s**t happens I guess.

I'll have a new vid card to cheer myself up, and I just got a nice raise in work too. So alls not that bad!

Yeah congrats on her moving back.

I'd take a cat off you but I can't for the same reason I don't get things cheap from Newegg, but the shipping would kill me lol ;).

If you can't find a home you could always lie and pretend you have 2 cats - I mean if you gave one to someone near you for when AC come round. I can't think they would take the trouble to do a thorough search.

Dublin,

I'm sorry for your situation. I wouldn't be cheered by a video card if I were you. I'll trade all of mine anyday if I were in your shoes, but I guess you couldn't even do that.

Incidently, I vehemently disagree with Chris. I hate to be smug, but I believe I am the parent here, and for quite a while I might add.. The rest, if you guys want to be offended, then I'm sorry. Oh well.

C'mon Ian-we all know you love to be smug ;)

Personally, I was speaking from the child's point of view, rather than the parent's-having been a child with parents who were unhappy with each other for the first 17 (ish) years of my life, I can tell you that the periods during which my mother moved out to live with her various boyfriends were much happier times for me than the years when I was forced to live though all the arguments and bad atmosphere. I've seen both sides of the coin, and you can trust me when I tell you that a child who has two parents who live apart and get along with each other will be happier than one who lives through daily conflict.

Regards,

Chris McNally

Hey,
well , i havnt posted on here for a while. Sorry to hear about all of your guys problems. Im only 16 and I have only one bad - and strange experiance. In 1997 , my grandad who i was always really close to died when we were on holiday. We had just arrived and we got the news. On the way to our hotel , we stopped at a bar with some other English people, we started talking and then he news reporter announced that princess diana had died. On the way back , we heard that mother teresa had also died. Then to end it all, we heard that a family friend had mysteriously passed away. this was a bad time but nothing compared to you guys problems. ( sorry bout that , a bit random but i got nuthn to do at the moment )

thanks,

Dan

( p.s. on the parent thingy , I think that having two conflicting parents which are split can really affect a child, and is best avoided. I see some of my friends stressed and generally unhappy after dealing with their family problems )

... when it rain's it poors. i had a few bad days too. i am glad you girl is back but never underestimate a woman's scorn. i hope your mom is doing better too.
to the the situation with the kids - stickin around with an unwanted significant other for the childs sack doesn't work out but that doesn't mean "out sight, out of mind". i seperated from my son's mother and after 6 month of fighting in courts and $4500.- dollars poorer, i got joint custody. not the ideal situation but he is my son just as much as it is her's. that was a couple of years ago. she now realizes that and things go much better. she really tried to give me a hard time in the beginning but she really is hurting herself.
so much for me.

i really hope things work out for you and for everybody else who shared their story. good to know that it's not all hollywood.

p.s.
btw congrats on the new gpu, specs?

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
