Re: THREE failed relationships due to money... unreal.

My ex continues to spend money unnecessarily, even post break up when she herself is now struggling financially for the first time in 6 years.  Naturally, she's had no choice but to stem some of the spending since she is now responsible for her own bills, but literally every penny extra goes toward extra spending.  None if it goes toward her 5-figure credit card debt.  Obviously it's her life now and those choices certainly impact her far more now than they did when we were a couple.  It does haunt me though because she still presses me for more child support above what was agreed on, not because it's deserved or due to any reason other than "she's struggling to pay her bills."  But, she's struggling because she continues to spend... and because she's racked up CC debt.  Neither of those things constitute a reason as to why someone should receive more child support.  What bothers me more though, of course, is that I have to worry about my son through this.  I have no way of knowing if she's providing adequately for him.  If she can make a choice to spend $100 on him or $100 on herself, I feel like she'd choose herself 9 times out of 10.  And, that's pretty sad.  It makes me sad for our son.  He's still very young and can't understand any of this, but 5+ years from now, then what?  It makes me sick to think about it.
