Before I get started I want to put this out there: my partner and I are in a same-sex relationship. I am NOT looking for discrimination or bible quotes or anything of that sort.
So me and my partner dated for almost two years back in high school and things were pretty serious. But then things went downhill and we broke up. After we broke up I basically tried to force myself to be straight and ended up getting knocked up. Anyways I had my daughter and my partner and I recently got back together. I warned my partner right from the beginning the day my daughter, Kayla, calls her "mom" is the day that the relationship is more serious then popping a ring on her finger. And she is an amazing mom, buys Kayla lots of clothes and toys. But the problem now is that I'm going back to college so that I can get a great paying job to support my family, but my partner doesn't think that she should have to pay for childcare. Am I out of line and expecting too much of her?
