Billy Flynn Gadbois from Boston is a father and an ex-husband who decided to do something unusual for his ex-wife that many people will disagree.
Billy Flynn Gadbois surprised his ex-wife on her birthday by bringing cards and flowers, as well as helping their kids make her a special breakfast. Even though they’re divorced, Billy believes they should still keep a healthy relationship and explains why in a viral Facebook post.
Gadbois’ post, posted on the Love What Matters Facebook page, has gone viral since with over 725k likes and 216k shares. You can read the full post below!
When he got asked why he still does that, he said that that question annoys him because he is raising two young champs and he needs to set the right example on how they should treat other women.
He added that when the children see their dad how he treats their mom will shape the way they see women and will affect the way they see relationships when they grow old.
“So if you aren’t modeling good relationship behaviour for your kids, get your sh*t together. Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you. Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever”, he finishes his post.
However, Billy says that it wasn’t always easy for him and his wife to overcome their issues. They had to learn how to overcome their anger and resentment they had for one another. This was not easy, but they needed to do it for their children.
“We’ve worked hard over time to establish our boundaries and find ways to manage our interactions so our own issues are minimalised or left at home when it comes to the kids. It’s an ongoing process but you can see a huge difference in the happiness and confidence and security of the boys since we started working at it,” he concludes.
Do you think he made the right choice? Do you approve his actions?
