    You can't break up with your children, I stopped helping her at all when she walked out on the kids last September, I still support my children I can't stop supporting them.

    15 years, it will be another 8 years before my daughter is independent, so the story is likely to continue.

    These are from the last few days, I have had some blissful peace at home without their mother.

    Lovely kids! They are growing up so fast...

    As usual Jim, your photo skills are plain to see.
    2 & 3 show your excellent compositional arrangement.
    Well done.

    When I split with my first (cheating) Mrs, my priority was keeping contact with our son... who was only 10 years old at the time. It would have been stupid to have fallen out with her, and lost contact with my much-loved child, so I played the long game.

    He stayed with me every weekend, and then at 14 years, he came to live with me full-time, but with two parents who both loved and cared for him... and were not fighting each other, and messing up HIS head.

    I notice the opposite of this so called Tampo and it’s called cockiness - especially when things are going well - but when it all comes crashing down and calamity Jane kicks in - which is often - it’s a sob story - like two different women.

    People get a bit flash with success - but next time - the bail out won’t happen ..

    Let’s see what happens then ...

    As for Tampo - it’s for kids - grow up

    I agree with you Jimmy.
    Tampo is such a destructive thing in a marriage, from the perspective of a Western husband especially if the husband has been brought up to believe that conversation should be the method to sort out perceived "right and wrongs".

    Well after 16 years sulking is what finished off my first marriage - and she has regretted it ever since - because the fact is we all have faults but the silent treatment puts the coffin lid on things. Life is too short . There ain’t many genuine people left out there and if you lose one your know all about it in time. We are living amongst some very immature people nowadays and if we have to constantly molecoddle and walk on eggshells - it ain’t worth it. I also don’t like people who get a bit mouthy and go the other way -

    I think immaturity is not the reason why tampo happens, Jimmy.
    It seems like it is more of a cultural phenomenon and Asian people are more likely to do it because they are generally less confrontational than people from non-Asian countries.
    I know ignoring people happens in the UK too, but it seems Filipino people take it to the "nth" degree and I am led to believe both men and women do it.
    I think Tampo is a total waste of time too...…… but I am not Filipino :eek:
