Thankfully he's not as bad as that. Goodness, how sad I am for you I also hate when people don't take responsibility. We all make bad choices and everyone does it for a reason in a sense, but there always comes a time when you have to reflect and just say you're sorry and own up to the fact that your reason really wasn't good enough.
Rich insinuated he's drinking more because the kids are fighting a lot lately. He didn't come right out and say that, but when I said I wasn't going to live with someone that drank every day his first response was, "I'm not going to live with kids that fight every day"
Last week Jessica made a bad decision, one that she had discussed with him prior and when he let her go I happened to come across her and intercept. Later, when I found out that he had known her plans I asked why he didn't stop her. He tried blaming her! I was like, who's the adult? She's 16!! It's stuff like that.
