    I'm not buying it. If she was having sex with strange men in the home for months while her children were under her care, then she is neglectful, and if she admitted to it, then she admitted to neglecting those kids.
    the reason HE didn't get custody? SHE was related to the judge and HE didn't have the money to keep fighting it for years and years in court.

    this was rural alabama where the "good old boy" system and nepotism is still in full effect.

    A woman in labor should get the benefit of the doubt. Their attention should be focused elsewhere

    They are fathers. I'm not really interested in going over this term again, but yes, the term is meant to demean. Maybe people can try respect, and who knows, they might get better results. Just a thought.

    Myth #2: There are not many custodial fathers
    Many people think that the number of custodial fathers is so
    small that it is insignificant. In fact, some researchers use
    the terms "single-parent families" and "female-headed
    families" interchangeably, as if only women head one-
    parent fa mi lie^.^ At one time, female-headed families made
    up such a large percentage of one-parent families that re-
    searchers could safely assume that they were representative
    of all single-parent families. Today, however, this may no
    longer be the case. According to data from the CPS, in
    1989, there were 1.4 million father-only families, com-
    pared with 7.4 million mother-only families and 25.5 mil-
    lion two-parent fa mi lie^.^ And although father-only fami-
    lies do constitute the smallest number of families with
    children in the United States, they have been growing at a
    faster rate than mother-only families and two-parent fami-
    lies. As indicated in Figure 1, between 1959 and 1989, the
    number of father-only families increased by almost 300
    percent, with most of this increase occurring after 1973.
    The number of mother-only families increased by almost
    200 percent during this same period, while the number of
    two-parent families remained the same
    .6
    As you can see, more and more fathers are getting custody of their children because the dynamics of the "traditional" family have been changing.

    The judge didn't recuse? The hell is up with that?

    LOL That's like saying laws against bank robbery causes more banks to be robbed. If the fear of prosecution does not make a father do the right thing then not prosecuting deadbeat dads will make things WORSE. You have it backwards we make things illegal so their will be less of that behavior.

    Nope, a father is one who knows his child and cares about his child and is a father. Just like a mother who doesn't care for her children would be considered an incubator and not really a "mom." Mom and dad are the ones who care for you, nurture you and love you.

    This sounds HIGHLY unethical. I'm very skeptical of your friend's story. There must be more to it.

    No, it's saying that removing peoples property by force and making them a servant of someone else against their will makes people react badly. You will never experience better results as long as the system is in place. You don't have to believe me, but in twenty years when it is EXACTLY like it is now if not worse, don't look at me like I didn't tell you so.
