Jenna’s 10-year old daughter’s father has never been present in her life…he was married and was having an affair with Jenna when she got pregnant. His wife threatened to take everything if he continued relations with Jenna so they broke up with one concession… The wife allowed him to pay child support; he never missed a payment. About a month ago he e-mailed Jenna saying that he was now divorced and would like to see his daughter. Jenna doesn’t want their lives to be disrupted, or her daughter to be hurt in the end.
Detective Slacker and Steve have come up with these conclusions: He had “kids” with the wife, and that is the reason why he did not leave his wife initially. Now that they are divorced he has the opportunity to finally be a part of his 10-year old daughter’s life, which was kyboshed originally by the ex-wife.
What advice do you have?
Personally, I think that he should get a second chance and have the opportunity to form a bond with their daughter. I also believe that the daughter is old enough to make this decision on her own.
