It’s been a year since my ex walked out on the girls and I and he had not make any effort to call or make arrangement to see the girls. That really hurts. How easily he severed all ties with his own flesh and blood? Is it easier for men to detach themselves once they are in another relationship? He used to be the best dad to the girls and now have not bothered to see them at all. I can’t understand the drastic turnabout in his behavior. What would cause him to behavior this way? Could it be the guilt and shame towards us because he committed adultery and had initiated the divorce that he doesn’t even want to see the girls? What should I do? I have asked the girls if they would like me to contact him to make arrangement for them to meet up with him but they are so hurt they don’t ever want to see him again. Should I respect their decision? The girls are 8 and 16.
