I have been married and divorced twice and am currently engaged to be married to the most perfect man I have ever met. I have two children who are 9 and almost 6 from my first marriage and a 2 1/2 yr old from my second marriage. My soon to be husband has a daughter who is 15 and had a vasectomy 4 years ago. I can honestly tell you that it is hard sending my kids off to different dads on the weekends - especially if one dad isn't as attentive as the other. But as far as regrets - the only thing I REALLY regret is that I don't have the ability to have a child with my soon to be husband. It seems as though I spent all of my 20's trying to figure out life and marriage and having children with men who just didn't really want to have a family - and now that I have found Mr.Right I am done having kids. I love all of my kids and wouldn't change one of them but I do wish I had paid more attention to making sure I only had children with a man who I was certain wanted to be a father and raise a family. There is nothing wrong with having children that have different fathers - just don't put yourself in the wrong situations and then bring children into those relationships as well. I don't think you are selfish at all - you just wish things could have happened differently....we all have things in our lives that are complicated....the only thing we can do is strive to be better in the future and inspire our sons and daughters to not make the same mistakes!

NO WAY!!! parentage is who makes them-them! think about it, if you didnt have the parents that you have, you wouldnt be you!! im greatful to have all three of my kids - the 2 older ones with my exhusband and the baby with my current boyfriend. i guess it all depends on how you look at it.
