My husband and I have been separated for 3yr. I made one requset of him, that is do not introduce uor children to (thes three month girlfriends) My children are young and Ii don't want them getting attacted to these peple to have them leave there live shortly after. I he agreed at the time but no longe respects that wish --- He's in his mid 30" and his interest seem to be in young 20 somethings that have much more maturing to do, and children are not one of their proirities. Any suggestions of working around this matter in a peaceful manner ?

Hi Danielle
Tell him that you are thinking of the kids and are worried that they will get attached to these (LADIES?) and then they wil be the ones to get hurt. Alos tell him that the kids think they are being introduce to the furture Step mother.Ask him if he could at least wait 6 months before he introduces them to the kids Or the very least when he becomes more seriuos with them.
That is the nice way... I would call a lawyer and see if anything could be done legally . If it is possable I would say look I do not want to take you to court over this but I will if I have to..
If you can not do anything leagalu talk to the kid about the dating and remind them that the father maynot be seriuos about the ladies..the also depends on the age of the childern
Maybe you both could talk to them together???
