It's fine if the dad's a great dad who wants his kids... but a different story when he doesn't.
I'm not judging the OP at all in this... he didn't want kids, and he made that clear... kids happened anyway... S*&t happens, right? But for his ex-wife to lose all that precious time with the kids she loves and wanted to me is the tragedy here.
I could be wrong but it seemed to me that she is a doctor who works long hours on a fortnightly roster, so couldn't have the kids more often. In his words, "She, being a family-kind-of-woman, loves to have the kids and craves more time with them, but being a medical doctor doesn't allow her to take more than the 7 days she already got." I guess either her career is important to her as well, or she needs to work to support herself and the children.
