Matthew and Jackie have been married for 2 years and have no kids together. Matthew received a call from an ex-girlfriend in California surprising him with the news that he has a 6-year-old daughter. She got pregnant right before they had a break and she wasn’t going to let him be a part of the baby’s life. His ex is now married to someone else, so the girl has a father figure, she just felt bad for not telling him and thought he should know. Matthew says he hasn’t been a part of his daughter’s life up to this point and doesn’t want to get involved now. His ex may be playing nice now, but she is insane and he doesn’t want anything to do with her. He says he will support his daughter financially if she needs it, but that’s it. He says that by bringing the ex back into his life, she will just cause major issues and eventually try to ruin his relationship with Jackie.  Jackie says that Matthew needs to be a part of the girl’s life no matter what. He needs to step up and be a dad. She is willing to help be a parent and deal with crazy ex. She knows the type of guy Matthew is, and while surprised by the news he has a daughter, she isn’t going to let it change the life they’ve built together.


What should Matthew do?
