Divorce can be messy, and when it comes to child support, things can get even more complicated. One dad, who's been divorced for almost 15 years, has found himself in hot water with his ex-wife after he stopped paying her 'child' support for their now-adult daughters, aged 19 and 21. Despite always being there for his girls and never missing a payment, he's now facing the wrath of 'mama bear' as he tries to support his daughters directly instead of through his ex-wife. 😳 Let's dive into the story!

Dad's Dilemma: Supporting Adult Kids Directly or Through Ex-Wife? 🎢

This dad has always been there for his daughters, never missing a child support payment and even voluntarily paying extra for years. Now that his girls are adults and in college, he's decided to stop paying his ex-wife and support them directly instead. But 'mama bear' has turned grizzly, demanding he continues payments to her for the next three years. Frustrated and confused, the dad questions if he's really in the wrong for wanting to support his adult children directly. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿
