OP and I agree, hence the decision I made. That said, there are challenges to this path too. Solo parenting for years, without another adult in your corner can be tough sometimes. Event things that have nothing to do with parenting - making career choices, handling care for aging relatives - are things you do without a partner, while being 100% present for your DCs and not offloading the stress on to them.

This is certainly a personal decision. You can do a background check for sex abuser status, criminal history, etc. I have seen women marry men who are fabulous fathers to their step children and I've seen the opposite. Normally it's the live in boyfriend (the one who doesn't marry you) who brings the most trouble. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, very much a personal decision. I cannot imagine asking a boyfriend/partner to do a background check but that is just me. I think the age of DCs at divorce matters a lot too.

[ - ] Brooklyn private K theory. It’s already ridiculously random how you judge a 4 year old for K admissions. Even though the former ERBs were not ideal, at least there was some kind of overall reference point. Now, the best reference point is probably the parents’s success or educational background and an indicator of a 4 year olds potential success. With the rise in cost for housing in Bklyn in the past 10 years, the types of families coming in are wealthy and come from top schools themselves. So if one kid’s parents went to Top schools and the other kids parents went to community college, wouldn’t the admissions team use that info to help them decide who to admit? Not fair but at least it’s something. Maybe the schools would be better off just doing a lottery. That seems more fair at this point. 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
