Seth Magow, a 33-year-old American, can only be appreciated for his bravery. His lovely wife left him in 2013, leaving him with four tiny children. Seth had a lot on his plate, but he wasn’t frightened to be a single father. Even without maternal attachment, he did everything he could to make his children happy.
“For days, the children sat at the door, waiting for their mother…”
Seth was just 19 years old when he decided to marry, and so was his beloved Chrissy. Seth, on the other hand, was already prepared for family life, which his bride was not.
“At first, everything seemed fine. Chrissy and I married and had two wonderful children. But it didn’t last long since Chrissy became bored with the family routine. “I worked, and she stayed at home for days, dealing mainly with our children,” the father of several children recalled.
Seth’s young wife had lost interest in washing, cleaning, and performing her motherly duties. She immediately “slid downhill,” disappearing for weeks in the company of new pals, only sometimes remembering that she had a family.
“At some point, the children stopped sleeping in their beds and moved to the front door. They sat there for hours, waiting for Mom to come back,” Seth said.
However, the wayward mother was not going to return to the children who missed her so much. The kids were hard going through her betrayal and locked themselves in. It was all seen by their dad, who became depressed after the divorce. Fortunately, Seth found the strength to start life from a new leaf, and without his beloved wife.
“I witnessed how much my children were suffering, and my heart broke.” It became evident to me that they were left with only me, and that their lives and destiny rested on me. “I had no right to give up,” Seth explained.
Seth’s children, 10-year-old Stevie, 8-year-old Nila, 7-year-old Titham, and 6-year-old Olive, now hope to find a new love for their father as soon as possible. Their attempts to organize Dad’s personal life can be rather amusing at times.
“They can approach the first gorgeous girl, in their judgment, and yell “Hello! “Do you not want to marry our father?” In such situations, I flush, feel uncomfortable, and pretend I didn’t hear anything. And they are continuously pestering me to go on dates. But I don’t want to because I’m fine the way I am,” Seth replies.
True, he went on a couple of dates, but with little success.
“Of sure, one day I’ll get married, but for now, all I want to do is be a loving father,” the man admitted.
