Reactions of women compared to men.
My story is pretty bad but so are many fathers. One thing I learnt years ago is that there is always another father with an even worse experience than yours. Mine is a bad one all the same.
When I tell people about my story with my ex, the family court and so on, I find that women at least at first find it hard to believe, whereas men believe it. Also I find that women are much more shocked that a mother could behave that way whereas men aren’t particularly surprised. I find this observation holds up pretty consistently. I think it is says a lot about women and society.
My question to you fathers is: do you find a similar pattern to the reactions when you tell people about your situation/story?
