    Better watch out - Sandra Fluke liberals will be after you because we're all supposed to know that just because a woman can't keep her legs closed doesn't mean she's a slut.

    Considering that he didn't know they weren't his until they were 12,14, and 16 according to the article, he is probably listed on the Birth Certificate as their father. In which case, that is legal paperwork that makes him the father.

    It's interesting that some of you who are normally in the "Adoption not Abortion" side are so dismissive of any definition of fatherhood that doesn't begin with sperm. As an adoptive father, I take extreme umbrage with this attitude.

    If he thought his wife was having affairs, he should have done the paternity tests right away. He wasn't tricked, he was a full and willing participant until 16 years later.

    And Rush Limbaugh conservatives will be after you for not believing in adoption.

    These are two separate issues, entirely - but I appreciate your take on it. Since this man knew about his wife's multiple affairs and still stayed with her and fathered a child with her 9 years ago, perhaps he would have "adopted" the other three older children at the time had he known, or even if the mother had known.

    A willing participant based on what we can assume were his wife's lies. Just because he may have suspected his wife to be a cheater, doesn't mean the kids aren't his. Nor does it negate her of her responsibility to disclose her indiscretions.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Don't conflate, we don't need to go there. I bolded the part above that's significant to this issue. You ARE your children's father legally - you adopted them, you took legal responsibility.

    What a clown.

    Where in Hell would your adopted child be if someone such as "Rush Limbaugh Conservatives" hadn't believed in adoption?

    And this man consented to being on the birth certificate, and was their father legally. He consented to the charade that he was their dad. Really, how dumb is this guy? 16 years and he never thought his wife had multiple affairs? There were no signs of it or anything? How unfeeling must he be to suddenly disown girls that were his daughters for 16, 14 and 12 years?

    They'd be in Nizhny Novgorod, Russian Federation. Avtozavodsky district.

    "Rush Limbaugh Conservatives" had ZERO to do with it.
