Go get that cash, girl!

Okay, I’m paraphrasing, but the guy who wrote this story basically said something along those lines…and now he wants to know if he acted like an a**hole.

Read on to see what you think!

AITA for making my girlfriend go after her baby daddy for child support and “ruining” his life?

“I met my girlfriend on Tinder and we were not exclusive to begin with. We get along great and I thought we had a future.

She got pregnant and we were kind of excited to start a family. When the baby was born it was very obviously not mine. I did not sign the birth certificate. I also did not break up with her. But I also told her that I would not be making myself financially responsible for the baby.

We had planned for her to take a year off work to be with the baby. She had already taken her maternity leave. I said she needed to go after the father for child support. She didn’t want to because they were “friends”.

I said I understood but then she had to take full financial responsibility for the kid. I would help her with all the childrearing like changing diapers and feedings and the like but not for paying for any of it. She agreed.

She ran through her savings in about six months. She talked to me about helping her with baby formula and stuff and I said no. That isn’t our agreement.

She called him and asked for money and he gave her a few thousand dollars to pay for baby stuff but told her not to contact him again. That is when she understood their “friendship”.

So she went after him for child support. His fiance found out about the whole thing and is thinking of breaking things off. The child support is enough that the baby will be well taken care of and will not affect our finances.

He called her crying because we f’d up his life. He said that I could easily afford to take care of them and that I’m an a**hole for dragging his life through the mud. She feels terrible about it and blames me for not just stepping up and considering her a single mom.

I love my girlfriend and the baby and I have no problem raising the baby. But I don’t think I should be held financially responsible when the father has resources and tried to evade responsibility.
