He sent you a text? A text. No phone call… No phone call, no… A phone call’s not even good enough for that. No, “I need to “see you face to face. “Can I speak with you face to face?” None of that.

So you say you are at the point now that you would break your family up because you just had enough? Yes, Your Honor. I just had enough.” Her words underscore the emotional strain she is under and the potential impact on their family. Mr. LeBlanc, on the other hand, expresses his love for his wife and the struggle he faces. He wants to be with his wife, but he is also aware of the potential consequences if the other children are indeed his: “I love my wife, Your Honor. I wanna be with my wife. But at the same time, my wife… It’s a struggle because… It’s hard to try to be with my wife knowing there is possibility that these other kids are mine and my wife, trying to have a move forward in our marriage… It’s hard for her to accept me… You know, bringing other kids into the household, outsideour marriage.” His words reveal the internal conflict he is grappling with and the difficult decisions he must make.
