What if you fall in love with a person and both of you are willing to get married but he has a condition that he will not accept your child from previous husband?? will you marry him or leave your lover?? Kids life is more important to you or your life & love?

Never! If a man would not accept my daughter then he is not the one for me. I don't respect a man like that and I would never be with a man like that in the first place.

I don't think it is possible to leave my own child. At the moment I don't think it is possible for me to ever leave my love, and we will have our own children toghether... If such a situation comes to pass, the one I would live with must accept my children as hers.

If she doesn't we don't realy have what to talk about in the first place... we can be friends, but no more. When someone wants to be a partner with somebody else, he has to accept all the things the partner brings with him. I might be writing in mail form, but it goes for both sexes...

I don't have a child, but if I did, I would put my child before a romance with a new partner, or if my relationship with the child's father put the child in danger (abuse for example) I'd end the relationship. One person can not completely love another person unless they are willing to accept that person's family as a part of their lives. When my mother married my step-dad one of the conditions was that my sister and I came first and that if he didn't like us, he was not the right man for my mother. Now we all love eachother!!!

What do you mean? I believe if you have a child, you have a responsibility to that child, and if you leave that child because your mate does not like him (I'm being general here, you refers to EVERYONE!) you are being selfish for not considering that child and your partner is being selfish for not considering the child.

Obviously he doesn't really love you if he can't love something that is a part of you thaqt you grew in your body. He sounds like a selfish pig and doesn't deserve a good loving person in his life.

I have brought my four children up by my self for eleven years, and I love them to bits, my fifteen year old son said to me the other day. "Lots of my friends at school have had several stepfathers and their lives are so miserable I'm so glad you have never done that mum." It surprised me, but I am glad that I have stayed away from men, one day there may be a time when it is right for me to be with another man but I know it isn't yet, my kids come first. I hope that what ever you decide is right, and that you must remember your kids are for life and these days men just don't seem to be, they seem to be too selfish.

No contest. Love me love my kids. Your children are you. If a man loves you then they must take the whole package. Any person who would choose a lover over their kids would definitely regret it later.

Look at it this way, if he loves you he would accept you for you and everything that comes along with you. Which includes your children. A person that makes you choose between themselves and another person/people are very selfish. Kid life is deffinately more important!

I would leave him at once, if this was a condition. I feel like me and the kids are non-separable, and the one that loves me has to love my kids also. Fortunately I found my husband because my kids father passed away and he loves them as his own. The problem, in the beginning was to make my children accept him. With their father's lost they were so angry about it that they (the boy much more) were always provoking my husband and telling him that he was not their father. It took some time for them to accept him, but it worth it and now they all get very well along.

ohhh that's tough LOL... anyway, i will sacrifice my love for my kids... if the man truly loves me he will accept my kid and my past :) my kid is more important to me than the guy whom im gonna marry.. im sure that guy doesnt like kids and i love kids so im sure our married life will not be successful :) the man that im gonna love should love me for my past, present and future and accept me as me :)

This would have been a question I would have asked before dating any man. If I date a guy he has to accept that my children are a part of myself. So in order for us to have a relationship he would have to want my child/ren. Men come and go but your child should always come first in your life. I wouldn't have to think twice before I kicked that man to the curb.

The moment my child was born, or even before that, the moment I discovered he would be born, he become very important to me. I can't imagine giving him up, for any reason. Why would I want to be with someone who wouldn't accept my son? What kind of relationship is that anyway? Surely if I were going to be in a relationship with someone, I would choose someone who really wanted me for who I am, and my child is part of who I am. If I were already in love with this jerk, then it would be hard to give him up, but I would definitely do it.

Hi there, With me, it would have not gotten that far, at the very mention of not accepting my children, I would of ditched him before that question even came up... Actually I wouldnt date a man with those conditions anyway. That kind of relationship will never work without the children getting affected and hurt...

I would have to leave my lover if I ever got into this situation. If you have children then you become rather attached to them and it would be hard to do anything that would hurt them. My child is more important to me than my own love or just about anything else.
