30. What do I want?
I want him to budget his money, like my parents did when they were far younger than 28, and like I did, when I was far younger than 28 and making half his salary getting no support.

And I want him to stop acting like a victim just because he's expected to cover the basic expenses of his child. Pay til you die? Unless he's planning to die when the kid turns 18, that's obviously not true. College loans aren't related to this issue, any loans he took out are also a result of his own decisions, he's not a victim because he took out a loan and now he's expected to pay it back.

And I want him to stop whining about being tricked into being a dad, and thinking that there should be a sliding payscale for dads that are tricked, and dads that aren't tricked. He obviously loves the kid, or he wouldn't be taking care of him 50% of the time, so maybe it's time to let go of the resentment. It's not healthy for him, and it's certainly not healthy for the child.
