Rob- have you had a conversation with your ex and asked her to explain her reasons as to why she feels she is justified in not providing food for her children? If I were you I’d be curious as to why she thinks this is ok! As someone else has said though, its not right she’s doing this, but you as the caring responsible parent will have to provide the money for their food one way or the other. Its not right and its not fair, but the bottom line is you want your kids to be fed. And just remember, your kids are well aware of the situation, and they will know that their dad did the right thing by them. It sounds like your ex is going to sabotage any kind of good relationship with her kids. My kids are still fairly young, and their dad isn’t great, financially or otherwise! But I cling on to the thought that one day they will be adults and they will see that I was the one who was there and tried my damn best for them. And that’s when their dad will reap the benefits of his actions.
