But Brooke will want Ridge back. She always does. That's another reason this SL is so lame. Been there done that a million times.
If Brooke, Hope, and Liam were serious about getting custody of Douglas, and Liam clearly had reservations about that idea, and I don't blame him, Brooke and Hope went about it all wrong.
Also, it's not fair of either Brooke or Ridge to expect the other person not to be there for their children. Unfortunately, Ridge and Brooke are enablers, not good parents. Then again, how would either Brooke or Ridge know how to teach their children the right thing to do. They don't know how to do the right thing themselves.
Out of Rick, Bridget, Thomas, Phoebe, Steffy, Hope and RJ, Bridget and Phoebe were the only sane and nice ones. We don't know about Jack because much like Brooke, the writers have forgotten all about him.
Poor Douglas is the adult out of all these selfish idiots. Douglas who did the right thing when none of the adults would. Douglas who worries about Thomas and Hope's feelings. Douglas is a better person than all of them. That reason alone is why none of them deserve to raise this child. Douglas deserves better.
