Dwyane Wade on Marriage: "I Was Probably a Terrible Husband"

Categories: Sports

Dwyane Wade's ongoing custody battle has been one of the most glum personal stories in the NBA, and one that has largely been played in public through court records. Wade however recently opened up about his failed marriage to ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade in Jet magazine, and admits he was "probably a terrible husband."

Wade married Fuches-Wade, his high-school sweetheart, and their first son was born while Wade was in college. The couple separated in 2007 and set off a long, seemingly never-ending court battle for both the terms of their divorce and custody of their two sons. The ordeal has been dramatic, involving shocking allegations and Fuches-Wade's arrest. Wade now has full custody of the two children.

"I didn't set out to get full custody but I wasn't able to see my kids the way I wanted and I'm not a parent who's going to run away from his responsibilities," Wade said. "I was probably a terrible husband, but I pride myself on being a good dad."

However, Wade hopes that one day he can settle the bad blood with his ex.

"It's been six years and hopefully one day she and I can get to the point where it's a lot easier than it is now to co-parent."

Though, in the meantime the ex-couple is still in court battling out the exact arrangements of their custody agreement.

Good for him. A good father is what children need along with a good mother. i am impressed and delighted to see this man fight for his children and his right to parent them (not meant to take away fro the mother).

a lot of guys can be GREAT fathers and be shitty husbands at the same time. my ex is an AMAZING father, but we just didn't work. and honestly, i MUCH rather him be a good daddy than my man. lol :)
