  •  My wife was a single mom with 2 kids (2+ / 0-)

    Angie in WA State, blueoregon

    until we married about 5 yrs ago.

    For 12 years, she raised two kids with an antagonistic ex-spouse who refused to pay child support.  Meanwhile, he's building his business, buying bigger houses, benefiting from the housing bubble...

    Now she's 44 years old and she hasn't saved for retirement - or the kids' college.  She didn't do anything wrong.  She got left by a philandering spouse who profited from abandoning his wife and children.

    We live in a society that financially rewards greed, and punishes responsible parents like my wife.

    This must change.

    Stop clapping. Stop screaming. Open your mind. Listen.
