Dear Julie:
Is it okay to move on from my baby’s dad? I don’t feel happy with him at all. He lost my trust, from talking to other women and doing his own thing. He always wants to do everything by himself and I feel like my daughter and I aren’t his priority.
I don’t want to be with someone I can’t trust and who disrespects me. He can’t even provide a home for us because he’s too worried about his truck. That’s all he cares about. I been with him when he had nothing. I supported and encouraged him to get a job and also got him a cell phone to contact him when he goes places. But now that he has a job, truck, and everything he wanted, he looks down on me and says I’m useless and not a good mom just because I stay home and take care of our daughter.
But I met this guy and he makes me feel amazing, he says that me and my daughter can move in with him, but I’m scared to move on. I’m scared to be in another relationship I just don’t know what to do, but all I can do is pray to God for his timing and what’s best for my daughter and I.
–Moving On

Dear Moving On:
Are you married to this man? If so, then you need to stay and do what you can to make it work. Get Christian marriage counseling as a start.
If you are not married to this man, move on if you want. But don’t move in with another man unless he loves you enough to marry you and provide a stable home for you and your daughter. You don’t want to subject your baby to a series of men who don’t love you enough to commit to a lifetime with you. Better to wait until the right man comes along. It’s no crime to make a mistake, but it’s wrong to make the same mistake twice.
God bless you.
