My job is ending marriges, but I would prefer to save marriages. I am not a marriage counselor, and yet I will offer my advice because I see so much that ends marriages. I will post these "insights" frequently.
Whether you are the father to an infant or a teenager, you might be thinking that your child is better off with the mother calling the shots and you taking a backseat in parenthood. If you are no longer with the mother, you may think that you have no other choice but to back off and let her raise the child.
