My boyfriend of 4 years and father of my four month old daughter and I are fighting. To make a long story short, he loves his daughter very much but has yet to really step up to the plate and help. I have moved back in with my father because no matter how hard he tries, he just can't really get it together. He has a job in his family's restaurant but gets paid close to nothing. I can't depend on my father, I'm a grown woman!
Anyways, I have been nagging for the last 2 months or so because I feel like I have to do everything (even his things!). I try not to, but I'm so frustrated with his lack of responsibility! I guess I pushed him too far on the phone tonight because he said he did not want to be with me anymore and that he no longer loves me. We live in a SMALL town in Nicaragua and it is inevitable I will see him. Plus, I have to go with him tomorrow to the capital city to get some paper work done (about a 2 hour drive each way).
I don't want to say anything to anyone I know because I hate the break up, make up game. I promised myself as a little kid that I would never put my child through the pain of a divorce (as I was shoved in the middle of my parents'). I know Mia will be too small to remember, but I want her to grow up with a real family and some structure. Plus I love him. What should I do? I am in serious need of some real advice. I know ultimately, that only I can make the correct decision, but do you all have any input? What would you do?
