Most people would agree that children's medical decisions should be both parents — but what about when one of the parents is staunchly anti-vaccine?
A woman recently posted on Reddit about just such a situation, and she's looking for advice on whether she should jab her kids without telling her ex.
I (27f) have two kids, 3f and 1m. When I got divorced, it was horrible. We couldn't work with joint custody, and in the end I was awarded sole custody of both our kids. My ex husband can still visit the kids, but he doesn't have any say in any education or medical decision regarding them.
Neither of them are vaccinated. I want to get them vaccinated now, but I know ex husband will loose his s*** if I do. I know I will legally be in the right. But would it be an asshole move to make a medical decision regarding our kids without at least telling my ex simply because he won't like it and I don't feel like dealing with him?
