The father of my children doesn't want to marry me because of the other children he has

I need your advice here! I have 2 young children with this man and we are not married. He also has 2 other children with 2 other women from previous relationships. Those 2 women are both single. He said he wants to be with me forever but he will not marry me unless the mothers of his other 2 children get married. The reason he stated is that he doesn't want to abandon his other 2 children. He believes by marrying me he will have to spend less time with his other children and it's unfair to them. He said his goal is to raise all his children well. My question is: should I leave him and find my happiness elsewhere? I do want marriage but at the same time I also want to raise my children well.

Yes, move on from him. If he wanted to get married, he would. Him being married has nothing to do with his other kids and he is using that as an excuse to stay single. You deserve better.

Don't worry. Focus on your kids. Stay true to your beliefs and what you know you and your kids deserve, and the right one will come along. Keep your head up.

Thanks, Lakota! That's what I think too. I won't say I'm not worried about the prospect of finding someone new...someone who will treat both me and my 2 kids well.
