GMD: Mother's Day Gift for Ex
YI! Today’s Great Mate Debate is from Todd and Anne:
Todd and Anne have been married 3 years. Todd has 2 children (ages 8 and 5) with his ex-wife. Todd mentioned that he plans on taking the kids out this weekend to buy their mom a Mother’s Day gift. Anne is not okay with the idea of Todd buying a gift for his ex…Mother’s Day or not!
Slacker buys his wife’s Mothers day present, just because his kids are too little. They don’t think it’s a bad thing at all, they just don’t understand why he’s doing it since he isn’t the primary care giver. Slacker and Steve don’t think Todd needs to get Mother’s day gifts. Todd’s not with her, so why should he be the one buying the presents?
Whose side are you on?
I think that Anne needs to understand that Todd will always be the children’s father and his ex-wife will always be their mother. Getting her a present for Mother’s day it like a, hey thanks for raising these kids with me, I appreciate it. It’s not necessarily a gift, but a thank you and since the kids are so young, can’t drive/don’t have income he is the one who needs to buy it.
