Of course u are doing the right thing!! haha =D After all, both of u have a part to play in bringing the kids to this world, and why is that u must be the only one to support the kids on your own?? What's more, it's his responsibility to provide for the family, and being a man, he ought to do so, without being asked for it.. And he has already gotten off the hook for 3 years, so i think it's time for him to make some contributions for your kids.. hehe

My goodness carrine, of course you are doing the right thing. Both parents need to contribute to the care and well being of the children. Even if you are separated or divorced, financial responsiblities do not end until they are full grown adults. Do you mean in the past three years, he has not contributed to the expenses and needs of his own children? How difficult that must have been for you to do it all on your own. Do not feel bad for even one more minute about asking him for financial support. You are doing the right thing, for you and for the children.

You are definitely doing the right thing. It takes two people to make a child and it takes more than just those two people to raise a child. Your children's father should be just as financially involved in their lives as you are and to ask for support is the right thing to do. By having the financial support of their father your children are going to be able to have a better life than they would have otherwise. If ever you decide to question yourself, look back at today and realize the difference that today is making for your children in the long run.

You are absolutely on the right track and it's matter of fact, you don't have to ask for this at all, the father would be responsible for his kids' lives and voluntarily provide financial supports without being asked for. You did the right thing so no worries. Good luck!
