BY THE TREE-BEAUTIFUL ONE
I'm currently going through a divorce (our marriage ended 17 days after the birth of our son when my husband told me he'd been having an affair). His father has not been very helpful or devoted to our son, and he drinks, smokes, and uses "recreational" drugs. I want things between us to be amicable for my son, and I want him to grow up knowing his dad. When I finally gave him the divorce paperwork he told me he wants "joint" custody. He wants to care for him half of the week! I don't think that's a safe environment for a two year old. His dad is coming over this evening to visit about the parenting schedule, and I'm struggling to know how to respond. Should I agree? Should I "fight it out" in court? Please ask God to guide me and give me peace about it.
