Kirsten was divorced and had primary custody of her eight-year-old son, Jack, who spent every other weekend with his father. One Friday evening when her ex-husband came to pick up their son, he handed Kirsten a piece of paper and said, “Here is your check.” Jack looked up at his mother and said, “Oh, so Daddy pays you?”.
