Co-parenting after a break up can be a tall order even if you're amicable, but it's extra difficult when you have completely different visions for your child.
Since women typically carry and give birth to children, they often have more of a pull when it comes to custody and big decisions early on in the child's life. This is even more true when she was never married in the first place, and the baby's father doesn't play a big role in the day-to-day.
Because of this, some dads feel they're given the short end of the stick when it comes to the birthing process, and what follows. While on the other hand, a lot of women feel abandoned with the lion's share of responsibility. The question of whether a mom should respect the wishes of her baby's dad after a break-up points to different answers in each situation. In some cases, the help of the internet is needed to find these answers.
