As I am from Indiana. But it seems as if in the government’s eyes, The fathers sole purpose within the family structure, is to be the provider of the monies. It seems rather funny to me that in a society where equal rights for women is held aloft, and there should be equal rights for everyone, that they too should be responsible for expenses the same as the man, and that emphasis should be placed on equal parenting at any costs.
I have seen children come from a rich environment turn out to be poor excuses for decent individuals as well as those from poverty. This being said, I think it is important for both parents to be able to share the financial responsibilities as well as the parenting. Why should Mom live in the nice new house….and Dad be in the poor house…. What does this show our children?
