I will encounter this problem in the future. I have 3 daugthers. Three of them still young around 3 years old and the younger one still 5 months. Anyway they will growing up and start to think something and make desicion. I just divorced with my husband. Is not impossible for my kids to ask me "Mom, who is my dad? Where is he now?" How am I going to answer that question? Because our culture, once you are divorce thats it, you wont meet that person again. Mostly, men that already divorced(in our culture), would not care the Ex-wife and the kids anymore. They are rather to have a new family. I always wish that even we already divorced, lets the father still have fun with the kids, Let the kids know, whose their father. But is not going to be like that. My husband left me due to there is another girl. So if you are in this stuation, what is your answer? Tell me.. share with me if you ever had this experience

At their age, you can't say to them that you just have your divorced...at the right time you can tell them what happen and how things are working out. But I don't think this is really hard if your ex husband will give time to visit your children then I am sure it's really good.
