Maybe "literally never bought anything for them" includes food, shelter, clothing and so forth. You know, literally never bought anything for them. The words the OP used? Sound familiar? Not supporting the children / family at all is a far more valid reason for divorce than just never buying them presents.

What a terrible wife :( So much for a love bond and more for materialism. I doubt she brought it to his attention, if she did then that sucks that he's so stingy. ____________________________________ www.myspace.com/rapid99

i believe OP was referring to the fact that the father has never covered any of the expenses of raising the children. hence "he has literally never bought anything for them." OP - so let your kids live with their dad. not only will he be forced to start paying for them, they'll find out he's not as great as they think he is and come running back to you.

this just seems weird....he has to pay for something right? The house, the car, something, or else where does his money go? drugs and hookers? (if so I would add that to the FML). More info would have been nice, because if he wastes his money and you carry the house, the gifts, everything, that is one thing; but if he pays for the house, etc but never any gifts, then that is a stupid reason to get divorced.

#91, the guy could easily be one of those guys who sits on his butt all day at home while the woman works, and since the kids see him more and all, they favor him without realizing the mom is the one working etc. to support them.

Why do people assume that she meant "never bought anything" as in the materialistic or excessive things? Yes, that would be a crappy reason to want a divorce. However, a little reading comprehension should tell you that if the husband has literally never bought his children anything, he probably doesn't contribute much of anything to the cost of living and the cost of raising the children, which would be a pretty valid reason to divorce if he's not doing anything else like being the pr

Today, my wife told my kids that we're getting a divorce. Fortunately, they were on my side. But the reason we're divorcing??? I can't get a job (recession) and buy things for my kids. FML

All these comments are good. It really can go either way...the guy could be a deadbeat asshole with a nice wife who covered for him for too long, or the woman could be a materialistic bitch who doesnt realize that the husband can't get a job or his money goes to other things.

@#97 "#91, the guy could easily be one of those guys who sits on his butt all day at home while the woman works, and since the kids see him more and all, they favor him without realizing the mom is the one working etc. to support them." I like how when a woman is a stay at home mom, she's seen as someone who works very hard to take care of her kids, though she doesn't have a job. Which is true. But when a man is a stay at home dad he's seen as a "guy who sits on his butt all

Ah you beat me down to it, Pauly. It kind of annoys me that most people commenting here keep pointing out the mother as the one at fault. Ah well. Really, who cares about all the BS the rest of the people here are saying? I hope the children go with the mother.. The children won't have it easy if they go with their father apparently.

#3 is absolutely right, based on OP's comments. Someway, somehow, the kids have a different perception of their father... certainly better than the perception of the mother.

Wow, you really know how to read don't you? Maybe what she means is that the father never does anything for the children. Maybe he doesn't care about them, or take care of them like a father should. Parents should always share the finiacial part of raising kids. So next time think before you respond. Who knows maybe your right and she's talking about extra things that aren't needed. Either way you shouldn't make assumptions.
