I said we got pregnant on birth control because at the time we got pregnant we were not ready for children. We wanted them but not at that point in time. It just came earlier than we wanted. And my husband didnt walk off. He's still here. He supports us equally with me. And to clarify I was the one not ready for kids he wanted them then. Now that said im not some scorned woman pissed because she's not getting her child support. I have a husband helping me out. God gave children two parents for a reason. Its because it takes two to raise one. Now if you want to keep complaining about men having to pay child support keep on. its no deal to me. The law is on the chilrens side.
hmmm

this is the problem I see and I know it doesn't mattter im probably like 1 in a million. I don't believe that if the woman tricked the man into haveing sex and purposely not useing protection and knowing she just wanted money..see not all women are honest. they get the money from child support and use it on whatever they need it does not go to the child the child is still doing without. I believe there needs to be a set of standards set and depending on the situation is to decided, its not all the womens but its not all the mens. they chose to have it and knew what they were doing right behind a mans back...

It all comes down to this. NO matter what the parties did before they had sex the child deserves the money. You dont like how its being spent then go back to court. But lets face it. Do you honestly think a woman cant show how the money is spent. She pays the rent, electric, water, cable, shoes, clothing, food. Lets face it she can count about 1/2 of those utilites toward waht she speant on your child, not to mention making sure tey are fed. Maybe your kid does withtout because they are not getting enough. My dad took my mom back stating that she did that. The judge found she was not getting enough.

Men are after the sex YES!!,but it is the woman's responsibility to keep herself from getting pregnant !!
It's both the man's and woman's responsibility! If the man would wear a condom then there would not be a questionable doubt if the woman could get pregnant or not and the woman should be on some sort of birth control and to make sure the man wears a condom. Thank you!

Here's a novel idea....how about just not having sex before you're married!! That would eliminate so many problems in this country. It would cut down on welfare. It would be very helpful for children who DESERVE 2 parents in their lives. No more single mothers who think they are entitled to the money we work for because they chose to breed with losers. The lack of morals in this country is disgusting! Not to mention the lack of pride, shame and self respect.
Just not right

I have to beautiful girls and I don't mind paying child support but when the court sets child support if u work it high. Then u try and work over so u can live to and have some money to do things with ur kids to she takes u back to court and they give her more money. Then u have to work the overtime just to get by. And she goes and works her 40 hours and that's all. That's not right. And yes I pay over 1000 a month for two. And it's because of overtime I worked so I'd have money to do things with my girls.
geesh

sorry males should get a paternity test and man up when it proves they are the baby daddy, instead they look for a copout and call the woman a slut. males are just as low when they play around they should be willing to raise the kids they create. or better yet marry the babymama and not label the innocent child a bastard. if this sounds harsh then people need to quit screwing around just for kicks and be decent.

I know some women who used the not paying child support as a way to keep from having to let the dad see the child. Because if he pays he will get to see the child. So if he has to pay the only way to get back at the mom is with the child. So u got to think do u want ur child in the middle of that And that can b with the mom not wanting to c the child to.
