He Tried?

Today, I told my soon-to-be-ex that he never does anything for the kids, and hasn't contributed a dime. He showed up with a half a gallon of milk and a box of cereal. Not what I meant. FML

Well, I'm not sure this is any consolation, but he finally put forth dimes (child support and maybe alimony) once the divorce goes through. if he's that much of a loser as you imply I'd take the milk and cereal effort pre-divorcr as a sort of something. Not a marriage saving something alas... but something?

aww. he's trying... however clumsily. The actions of a man who wants to please you but isn't gifted in working out how. much like many people slightly on the spectrum... perhaps you could tell him what you need.mpre directly? 1 request at a time? good luck OP.

So he tried! It's clear that he took what you said and tried to work on the problem. YDI if you're going to bitch about your soon to be ex on FML because he interpreted what you said differently than want you meant. Next be specific and learn to see when someone's making a clear effort.
