BROKEN HEARTED DAD

My mother's boyfriend lived with us two years before they broke up for good, makes for some awkward meetings later in life.

THIS IS THE STORY OF A MAN AND HIS KIDS. THE MAN’S NAME IS CHARLES.  CHARLES AND HIS CINDY BROKE UP AFTER 4 YEARS AND NOW CHARLES DOESN’T GET TO SEE HIS KIDS.  HE IS NO LONGER WELCOME AT JACK’S SOCCER GAME.  HE NO LONGER TAKES AMANDA TO HER TUMBLING CLASSES OR SIT IN THE AUDIENCE DURING JULIE’S MUSIC RECITAL.  THE KIDS GET NO SUPPORT FROM CHARLES,  AND THOUGH THEY MISS HIM,  THEY CAN’T SEE HIM ANY MORE. CINDY IS WITH MIKE NOW, AND THOUGH HE IS A SWELL GUY, HE CAN’T TAKE THE PLACE OF CHARLES.  MIKE CAN’T FLY A KITE LIKE CHARLES, AND HE THINKS AMANDA SHOULD BE ABLE TO TIE HER OWN SHOES. (SHE CAN TIE THEM ON HER OWN,  BUT SHE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING THAT’S ON HER MIND.)  MIKE GETS FRUSTRATED, BECAUSE BINGO GROWLS AT HIM WHEN HE GOES TO CINDY’S BEDROOM,  DUMB DOG. HE DOESN’T KNOW ANY BETTER.  THE KIDS SAW CHARLES AT THE MALL WITH SOME OTHER LADY, AND CINDY WOULDN’T LET THEM GO TO HIM.  CHARLES IS VERY UNHAPPY, HE WANTS TO VISIT WITH THE KIDS.  CHARLES REMEMBERS TEACHING JACK TO RIDE HIS BIKE WITHOUT TRAINING WHEELS AND MAKING A TREASURE MAP FOR ALL OF THE KIDS.  HE REMEMBERS TAKING THEM ALL TO MAGIC MOUNTAIN,  AND CAMPING OUT IN THE BACK YARD WITH THEM ONE SUMMER NIGHT.  THE PTA MEETINGS AND SELLING SCOUT COOKIES.
CHARLES CAN’T SUE FOR CUSTODY OR VISITATION RIGHTS, BECAUSE THE CHILDREN ARE NOT BIOLOGICALLY HIS AND HE WASN’T MARRIED TO CINDY.  NO, NOT THEIR LEGAL FATHER.  BUT HE HAS MORE TIME AND ENERGY INVESTED IN THEM,  THAN ANY OTHER MAN ON EARTH.  THEY CALL HIM DAD, BUT HE ONLY HAS THE DADDY’S EMOTIONS IN HIS HEART, AND NO LEGAL CLAIM.  HE WANTS TO KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO THEM WHEN HE SEES THEM AGAIN………..WHEN HE SEES HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND AND HIS KIDS AGAIN…………

Many couples bring children in their relationship, but should we have our children meeting a potential spouse, before we get married?
