These women give other new partners a bad name.
While I can totally understand that it is perceived as the new women, but at the same time, when are the men being forced to take responsibility?

I had this exact discussion with my fiance... he was trying to stick up for his Dad saying it wasn't his Dad's doing, which I get, its his Dad, but when did these men start allowing their new partners to treat this children like second class citizens? I am sorry, but his father is a grown man and has been for sometime and he lets this happen? This is just as much Dad's fault as it is the new women.

If I every treated my step children like his step mom treated him, I wouldn't expect him to stick around long.

Berner is right, it's a very all-too-common aspect of divorce.
I was recently told of a person who has moved in with a someone that doesn't work, has two kids of their and collects spousal support. Apparently, this person abandoned their own kids, and has embraced the kids of this someone
