I have a friend, let’s call her Marie, who is a mother of two (ages 2 and 2 months). The father of her kids, we’ll call him Curtis, is a kid himself (early 20’s) and just not up to the challenge of manhood and fatherhood. She’s in her early twenties also, but was basically the more responsible of the two. They had been married just over two years when he decided he couldn’t handle it and so he left for another woman, whom he’s not happy with either. Go figure.
For her part, Marie did verbally emasculate Curtis at times, because she didn’t agree with his leadership style. A lot of times she would end up having to do the things she asked him to do like cut the grass or fix something herself. He also made bad decisions when it came to money, because he wanted that “balla” lifestyle without putting in the work. Needless to say, they are going through a divorce.
Marie is very attractive and has a great head on her shoulders, but she wants to be married again. I’ve encouraged her that she won’t be on the market long, but of course there are no guarantees. So here’s the question I have. Hopefully I can get some of the guys to come out of the woodworks and respond to this or some sisters who have experienced something similar. The question is what are the chances of a sister finding another mate who has two young children? Does having the kids throw her out of contention even if she has everything else on the ball?
What are your thoughts, what are your experiences?
