    LOL. No, none of those indicate that. You don't take money out of your own child's mouth if you care. PERIOD. You also don't complain about contributing to your child's upbringing in any way possible if you care about that child.

    I'm saying ONLY blowjobs.

    And I reciprocate - usually on a ratio more beneficial to the woman.

    But do you believe that a man is legally required to pay for any of the pregnancy related expenses?

    Good morning, Vesper.

    : I don't understand why he wants to be in the delivery room if she doesn't want him there. She obviously has bitter feelings about him, which is going to stress her when she needs to be as relaxed as possible. The doctors aren't going to switch babies or anything. Another thing I wanted to mention is that without blood work that proves he really is the father, since they aren't married - hey, it happens - what good will it do him to see the baby? It does sound like he cares about the baby, but those feelings apparently don't include the mother. The last thing anyone needs is a confrontation in the delivery room! Maybe I'm off base here, but this time I'm on the side of the woman who doesn't want her ex-boyfriend in the delivery room.

    None of these things you guys are saying makes any difference in this woman's right to privacy during the delivery of the child. Obviously this man makes HER feel uncomfortable and she doesn't want him there. She has NOT said she wouldn't let him see this child or be a part of this child's life. In fact, IIRC, she put his name in particular on the visiting list just so that he CAN come and see his baby. However, HE decided to be a douche and throw a tantrum over being there in the delivery room instead of concentrating on being a "dad" to this baby. THAT is what should be taking precedence here, the baby.

    How in the heck did he take money out of his child's mouth? And how do you conclude that he will complain about contributing to his child's upbringing when all things show he has made claim to this child?

    Not to mention that a bystander in the room isn't going to help the medical professionals. And may even become another patient. (passes out, gets his knuckle broken, etc... etc.)

    Exactly, and IMO, if he cared at all about the baby (or the mom), he would not be behaving in this manner because his child's health and well-being would be of the utmost importance to him. Being there, if you are invited, is a privilege, not a right. Perhaps if he had tried talking with her about it and explaining that it meant a lot to him to be there, she would listen, but he chose to bring a lawsuit instead.

    Perhaps he did try to speak with her, and she is just a bitch or she just REALLY does not like him anymore, I can't say, but if his presence makes her uncomfortable, that should be good enough for him to cease and concentrate on being a good dad.

    Filing a lawsuit against the mother? Lawyers cost money.

    Good points Polgara, however, the child they created together is here now. Even though they are Ex they have something that will always connect them. She can no longer use the delivery room as an excuse to avoid reality. Let the lawsuits begin!
