You marrying him just 17 months ago, isn't a magic bullet that will make him a good father to your children. I presume that the first 7 years of your relationship, he had the same attitude toward your children? So, he's been in their lives for over 8 years, and has essentially had the same attitude?
To your children, he IS their father, but for some reason, chooses to dial out. It would be helpful to know how old your children are- maybe he's making excuses because what you are asking him to do, or help with, he doesn't know how to help, or is unsure of what he's doing?
He must know that he is responsible for them, as do you. Why do you think he's dialing out?
