Famous Fathers Setting a Good Example During Divorce..
I write many articles about nasty celebrity divorces and about deadbeat dads, so I thought it would only be fair to write about two famous dads who are taking the high road during their divorces and doing the right thing.
First up is Robin Williams. Not only has he not bashed his wife in public, he actually signed an agreement not so so. He and his wife are going the Collaborative Divorce route and working together to resolve their differences in a amicable manner. This will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the couple's children.
Next we have Russell Simmons. He has recently worked out a custody agreement with soon to be ex wife Kimora Lee Simmons. Russell is paying a substantial monthly sum in child support and had this to say about Kimora and their agreement:
"Finally, I want to say Kimora is a excellent mother and is doing a great job with them. My kids are studying a couple of foreign languages, they travel around the world, they practice yoga, ballet, swimming, karate and piano, among other things...sometimes I think they do too much, but I trust in Kimora on this because she IS a good mother.
Regarding the money, my kids live a tremendous life. They do have lots of security, nannies, educators, special programs, travel, chefs, on and on. Their mother manages all of those luxuries and I’m happy to provide for that."
Wouldn't it be wonderful if all divorcing dads and moms acted with such class and dignity, putting the needs of their children first, instead of withholding financial support to get even with their ex? You do not need Russell Simmons huge bank account to provide a comfortable living for your kids.
Instead of complaining about how much you have to pay in child support or assuming your ex is spending that support on themselves, you can take the high road these two famous fathers have taken. Learn from their example. Neither is bashing their ex or fighting or complaining about the financial support they must pay.
