Navigating a Lack of Regret in the Divorce Experience

[ad_1] For many, leaving your marriage is the light at the end of the long tunnel. It has been so long since you last felt the freedom of not having to deal with the toxicity of an unhappy and dysfunctional relationship. You feel like you can finally breathe again.

They view child support as “extortion” instead of taking care of their responsibilities to their children. Some men hate paying child support!
