Jen is 23, has a successful business and a healthy 3-year-old daughter. Some may say she appears to have it all. But Jen says her life is a mess.
“I’m struggling to move forward with my ex-boyfriend, Chris, the father of our daughter,” Jen says.

Jen says she and Chris have had a rocky relationship since their daughter was born. She claims he would take off and leave for months at a time, leaving her to raise the little girl as a single parent. She says they haven’t seen each other in almost a year and only recently started talking again.
“Chris wants to be back. He wants to be a part of my life and our daughter’s life,” Jen says. “My feeling is if Chris wants a relationship with me, then he better go do what I told him from the start and be a co-parent.”
In the video above, hear what Chris says about his relationship with Jen – and about his own behavior.
