A 37-year-old mother is facing backlash after deciding to move away when her 13-year-old son, Tommy, chose to live with his father full-time. The mother, who shares custody with her ex-husband John, has always disliked the area they live in and longed to move back to her home state. When Tommy approached her about living with his dad full-time, she agreed, but now she's been offered a great job opportunity in her home state, and she's ready to make the move. However, her decision has sparked controversy, with her ex-husband accusing her of being manipulative and her son feeling like he's being punished. 😕🏠

Is Mom the Bad Guy for Moving? 🤔

This mom's decision to move away after her son chose to live with his dad full-time has stirred up quite the controversy. Her ex-husband accuses her of being manipulative, while her son feels like he's being punished. However, she insists that she's always wanted to move back to her home state and has been offered a fantastic job opportunity. With the current custody agreement, she would still see Tommy regularly, and she promises to maintain contact with him. Is she really in the wrong for wanting a fresh start? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...🧐💬
