That's a rough deal. It's not really even about the money (as I'm sure he enjoyed being 'dad') but just the awful deceit of it.

Looking at it in a dispassionate, theoretical way, it’s easy to say “What’s the problem?” but think about the ramifications within relationships. Like I said in another post, if my husband wanted to confirm paternity of his child, I would agree to it without hesitation. But let’s not pretend it wouldn’t leave questions hanging in the air. Asking for a paternity test is inextricably questioning the fidelity of the woman in the relationship. If you’ve never been unfaithful, that’s tough to swallow. Your character is being tested and questioned.

While CF women can be fertile, though not as fertile as non CF women, almost all(99%) CF men are infertile.

What? What do you mean "typical boards response"?

There are all types of responses here.

It shouldn't be deemed a problem if a woman doesn't like the idea of a system based on the mistrust of all women. How on earth is that emotional blackmail? And typical of whom?

Obviously men wouldn't like a system that mistrusts all of them. And with good reason. If a man has good cause to mistrust his partner, he should follow his gut instinct but mandatory?

It really shouldn't be difficult to see the issue with this.

What a ****ed up world we live in.
If she was there from before his wealth, her contribution to the relationship may have been deemed a big help in supporting him while he built up the business. I don’t know much about this guy so I don’t know if that’s the case. But it could be. Often spouses of people who become wealthy during the marriage get generous settlements because it’s recognised that they contributed in some way to that success. Keeping the domestic show on the road can be part of that.

Just pointing out that the divorce settlement and paternity fraud penalty are two separate issues.

It's always funny watching some women get offended by the idea women aren't perfect on threads about this. It's pretty inevitable the government will be dna testing all kids at birth in a few years time. I think they already test for some inherited diseases based on family history and racial background.

You really love me don't you. Following me around like some love sick puppy.

There is no mistrust of women conspiracy here. What we are dealing with is a serious lack of respect for men who are embarking on parenthood which is a very serious long term commitment both financially and physically. This is certainly not the first case and it will not be the last. Now read what I said again slowly, just to ensure you don't go into another "leave da wimminz alone" meltdown mmmk?

The term Nepotism derives from the word Nephew.

In days of yore, the only male relative a King could be 100% sure was of his bloodline was his sister's son.

His own son could be the result of infidelity on the part of his wife

His brother's son could be the result of infidelity on the part of his brother's wife.

How could the king be sure he and his sister had the same biological father?

Is it possible to find out if a child is yours without the mother knowing?

As long as married men and women have affairs this will happen. But she must have known it was a 50/50 chance whether her husband or her lover was the father of her first child. To let it happen two more times is unforgivable really.
