    Irrelevant. Child support is not alimony, it’s to make sure your offspring has the the best opportunities the parents can provide. What’s more, it does factor the relative incomes of the parents.

    The parents poor decision making with their own life shouldn’t burden that of the child (already starting at a disadvantage in most cases). Nor should the parents poor decision making burden everyone else. It’s not like you don’t know the potential consequences to sex. Show personal responsibility like an adult and do what it takes to make sure your offspring have a better life than the miserable one you choose.

    In most states, jail for delinquent child support I the last resort, after multiple contempt hearing and usually several years of non-payment. It’s not like you miss a payment and you are jailed. It’s also incredibly amazing how often the jailed person miraculously has the money to come current on payments and get out, despite their claims of being broke.

    I'd be so down on life finding out I had a 5 year old out there and missed those 5 years with them, the money would pale in comparison. But on the subject of child support, I could see/understand going forward if he had to pay. It'd be messed up if he got a bill for back-charges starting from birth.

    edit: This is the sh** you ask for when having pre-marital sex.

    They aren't worried about it. They expect you and me to support their mistakes through taxes to raise the children.

    yep - many women on welfare because the dude won't pay.

    edit: I wouldn't call it a "mistake" though. making another life is never that. still the coolest thing humans are capable of.

    I know of a gal (former co-worker of my wife's) that was getting in her late 30s with no husband or children and she decided she wanted to have a baby. she's looking her age now, but 10 years ago when this happened she was pretty good lookin woman. She drove out to colorado and banged a married guy that she had known from beforehand with the intention of getting pregnant, and she did get pregnant and to this day that guy isn't aware he has a son in Lincoln.

    Throughout my life so far I have been lucky enough to have been given some great advice......one that stands out is "if you have a baby with the wrong woman your life to an extent is over". I have sooooo many friends who have baby mama drama with child support issues and I just shake my head, gotta be smart. Another example of that advice being true is this......walk into any prison in America. The majority of inmates are in there for mainly 3 reasons.......guns,drugs, or because of a woman.


    My friend was right on the money with that advice, its kinda funny because the same guy gave me some other advice that stuck over the years too......."if it smells like trout......get out".

    Just watched an episode of paternity court, the guy who signed the birth certificate found out the child was not his.... after paying 20k in child support. With new DNA evidence the State says he is still responsible for that child. I would say you are wrong.

    Question. Why can't a man choose to walk away from his responsibilities when the woman-if she so chooses-can:

    1. Get an abortion 2. Put it up for adoption.3. Leave it at a fire station









    A little tongue in cheek but you get my point.

    Lol. I think about something Bill Maher said about the miracle of child birth/mother hood etc.

    Paraphrasing:

    Said in a very dry tone "we're making heroes out of women for having a baby ...something a dog can do,.

    It was unexpected and pretty fing funny.

    Most courts do not hold the father responsible for retroactive child support, but only for prospective child support from the day the father was informed of the child or the day the mother first requested support from the father. But those are not the worst scenarios. There are thousands of men paying child support for children who are not their biological offspring and whom they did not adopt, but were born during the marriage.

    This ties into the abortion topic. If she thinks " that if is woman's body and her choice" he shouldn't have to pay child support.

    I'm glad I didn't sleep around when I was younger. My wife and I have 2 kids. I know they are mine. We have been married for 17 years. Some really good and some not so good, but we have made it through, raised two really good kids with excellent grades. Life is about choices and living with the consequences of those choices.
