I am in Edmonton, AB, Canada.
Yeah I thought so. I don't plan on him doing anything until we are married if we do.
Just some thought in the air. Also, I don't want child support from him, as it would be
Drug money under the table, I have allowed him to take her over night once
When she was 3 months, she came back, not fed all bottles, looking high, and
Not properly buckled...other times he has seen her in my supervision, he has done illegal
Acts that I don't approve of, and left, and just ignored him since, he would harass me all the time, I told him "take me to court" and said "no" so he really does not care.
