Billy Flynn Gadbois lives in Boston. He has done something really unusual for his ex-wife.
He surprised his ex-wife on her birthday by bringing cards and flowers and helping their kids make her a special breakfast. Billy believes that they should still keep a healthy relationship even though they’re divorced. He explains the reason for it in a viral Facebook post.
Gadbois has post this on the Love What Matters Facebook page. It has gone viral with over 725k likes and 216k shares. Here is the full post!
He said that he is raising two young boys and he needs to give an example on how they should treat other women when others asked him why he still does that.
When dad treats their mom like this way, the children can see how their dad treating women and they’ll also behave the same way when they grow up.
He finishes his post by saying, “So if you aren’t modeling good relationship behavior 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.”
According to Billy, they were having difficulties to overcome their issues. If they could learn how to overcome their anger and resentment they had for one another, they would be together. Even though it was not easy for them, they needed to do it for their children.
He said, “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.”
