My husband and I have been married 3-1/2 years and he is wonderful. The strong, silent type, he never complains that he has to raise and pay for children that aren't his. I am a stay-at-home mother, and I cannot give him enough to pay for all that he does for me. My abusive ex-husband rarely pays child support for very long, and gets mad that the girls call my husband "Daddy." He may not be their father, but he is their dad. He loves them, and now that we can't have any more children (both of us are infertile), it is so meaningful that he loves my children and expects nothing in return.
